Our focus is on all aspects of marine transportation and marine construction, from the planning, design and successful execution of high value/high risk complex marine operations and construction activities to the provision of specialist technical expertise for the investigation and resolution of major maritime accidents, casualties and claims.
LOC is at the forefront of responding to marine emergencies worldwide. We have worked on marine casualties of all scales, including some of the largest and most complex incidents in recent history. Our global network of offices means that we can respond rapidly.
LOC provides expert advice at all stages of the marine claims and disputes process, including marine accident investigation. Our experts provide oral and written evidence at court and arbitration proceedings.
A marine warranty surveyor (MWS) provides independent third-party review and approval of high value and/or high risk marine construction and transportation projects, from the planning to the execution stages.
LOC undertakes an extensive range of surveys, inspections and audits. While instructions are often for work on a specific vessel or facility, we also work with multiple vessels and even entire fleets.
This can include the load-out, transportation and installation of offshore oil and gas facilities, the decommissioning and removal of offshore structures, alternative energy (such as offshore wind farms), ports and harbours and general maritime transportation.
