We pride ourselves that we are first and foremost shipping people, having worked for and with shipping companies from the beginning of our respective careers. We do not only thoroughly understand your business, we also know how to deal with the setbacks that each and every shipping company will have to face from time to time.

Our challenge is to turn setbacks into rewarding experiences., no matter how weird that may sound when you are just about to face a claim which may well result in a financial loss.

Having all of us a background in marine claims handling, we do not only know how to steer away from a potential loss making scenario, but equally when a claim is not avoidable how to make the best of an otherwise unwelcome situation. Claims are not without reason called invitations to make things better.


You are used to fight for the last dollar in every deal and you expect your service providers to do the same. Will they run the extra mile for you?

Even when you are generally speaking happy with your Insurers, claim handlers who suggest too quickly to settle a demurrage case as it is more cost effective are not your preferred choice.

External lawyers are expensive however that does not mean they are better, they often have more overhead that needs to be charged.

Then again, being right is one thing but to get there is often indeed a costly exercise when you have to hire external lawyers.

An in-house lawyer would thus be ideal but luckily you do not by far have enough cases to warrant employing one.

What if you could just hire an in-house lawyer when you need one? Just to pursue that one case or to review a contract or even guiding you during contract negotiations. At True North Marine we offer all of that and more.

When calling us you are immediately in touch with a specialist. We aim for quick and practical solutions and we discuss every step along the way if you so desire, as if we are your in-house lawyer. Since we constantly aim to tailor our services to your needs, our earnings structure should be as well, and we are open to discuss any structure that suits you in this regard.
