We offer independent advice including expert witness and forensic analysis to support disputes and litigation claims. Our dedicated team of expert witness surveyors have been trained to give evidence in arbitration and court proceedings and have significant experience doing so in the U.K., Netherlands, Germany, Norway, Spain, Italy, Hong Kong, New York etc.
We accept appointments to act as court surveyor or as arbitrator for several jurisdictions.
In case of a mediation, we may also provide technical assistance.
Apart from our surveys expert team we may call upon the support of an almost unlimited reservoir of knowledge from BMT’s in-house pool of almost 1,000 experts from every corner of the marine industry.
Not long ago, an expedition cruise ship grounded off a remote island; no one was hurt, there was no environmental impact and damage was minimal but the potential learning outcomes are huge. BMT’s Nick Dowden investigated and reports.
The potential opportunities and rewards are vast. Let’s change where we need to, let’s collaborate more. We will not just survive, but thrive!
Working at sea can be tough. Many of us will have had the opportunity to experience the cold, the wet, the heat, the constant motions, the cramped spaces and the isolation from home life.
