Our Shipping Department has obtained an excellent result on a case involving the contamination of a phenol cargo carried on board M/T “LORENTZ” from Antwerp to Rotterdam.

After three year Court proceedings and two interim judgments in favour of our clients (oil giant CEPSA and their insurers GENERALI), the shipowners finally decided to settle the case for a substantial sum.

This matter is an example of our team's capability to successfully handle cases internationally for both Spanish and foreign clients.

Our thanks go to GENERALI and CEPSA for their trust and input, as well as to our Dutch colleague, Michiel Spanjaart, for his excellent advice throughout this matter.
