Sedgwick has expanded its global marine practice through the integration of both Sedgwick and Cunningham Lindsey’s marine divisions, following the completion of its acquisition of Cunningham Lindsey in April 2018.
Sedgwick said that the integration would continue to strengthen the claims services and solutions of its marine practice, which currently consists of 180 dedicated marine experts working across 45 countries.
By combining the resources and expertise of both firms, Sedgwick also claimed that its global marine practice is now the largest team in the world and the only global provider of marine claims services in the industry.
“This is an exciting time for us as we further strengthen our existing marine claims management capabilities across the world,” said Ton Schox, Sedgwick’s Head of Marine, Continental Europe and Marine Specialist Practice Group leader in Rotterdam.
“Our enhanced capabilities within the marine sector work extremely well for brokers, underwriters, traders, lawyers, and self-insureds,” Schox continued.
“As the biggest and the only global marine claims services provider, we are well-positioned to use the extensive resources of the Sedgwick group to deal with a major, complex marine loss and to enhance the overall services we can provide to our clients.”
Sedgwick’s global marine practice currently provides cargo, liability, hull and machinery, pre-load/off-load, project cargo and risk management surveys including claims handling, TPA and recovery services.
