Tatham Macinnes have assisted different clients on a number of occasions where both collisions and groundings had occurred in the Suez Canal, involving fully laden oil tankers and container vessels.

Groundings and collisions within such close proximity to large banks often involves the unpredictable and often misunderstood hydrodynamic effect of vessel interaction with the banks and bottom of the Canal.

In all cases, Tatham Macinnes were able to send out one of their specialist master mariner solicitors to fully investigate, collect the necessary evidence and, where necessary, to assist with the arrangements for salvage, general average, and ship to ship transfers.

Back in the office, our solicitors were able to deal with all of the various issues arising in relation to cargo and utilising their background and experience in seafaring and naval architecture to ensure successful outcomes for the clients involved.
