Legal Expenses Insurance

Legal Expenses insurance is often thought of as ‘dispute insurance’, because it covers legal and other costs arising out of your vessel’s operations. Without it you’d have to pay these costs yourself.

Unlike liability insurance policies, Legal Expenses insurance may also cover the costs of pursuing claims against people you believe haven’t met their obligations to you. Often these will be contractual partners, but claims must relate to the operation of a vessel. Legal Expenses insurance doesn’t cover the sums at the heart of the dispute; only the legal costs associated with it. It responds to some of the most common causes of dispute…

What if...
  • You’re in dispute with a charterer or charter broker?
  • You believe a ship yard has not met its obligations under a service or repair contract?
  • You encounter a contract dispute over the sale of your vessel?

Coverage includes:

  • Your legal fees associated with the dispute
  • Arbitrator or mediator fees
  • Expert advisor costs
  • Opponent’s costs in where a judgement is found against you (excluding fines or penalties)
  • Other legal matters brought against your person or trust
