Salvage claims typically involve the rescue of a vessel in peril, with the salvor making a claim against the owner and/or insurer of the vessel for an award based on the complexity (order) of the salvage.   While a number of these claims may be successfully negotiated by the vessel owner and/or its insurer without the need for attorney involvement or litigation, certain claims do present intricate or unique issues requiring representation. Our attorneys have assisted vessel owners and their insurers in salvage claims all over the world, and are happy to lend their experience to forge the best possible result in defense of a salvage claim.
