US Hull & Marine Liability - New York

Published: 29 July 2020

The Directors of W K Webster are pleased to announce the launch of a US Hull and Marine Liability Claims Service based in New York.

The new service will initially be staffed by William (“Liam”) Richards who in recent years has been an important part of the company’s Hull and Liability operation in London. Liam has significant knowledge and experience across all types of Hull and Liability claims including groundings, collisions, vessel fires, salvage, machinery breakdowns, cargo P&I liability, personal injury and marina and boat builders liability.

This new US based Hull and Liability service complements the existing well established offerings provided from the London and Singapore offices and now completes the reach of W K Webster’s Hull and Liability Claims service across all three of its hub offices to provide a truly global 24/7 response whenever and wherever the need arises. All Hull & Liability enquires for the Americas should be directed to Liam at or +1 212 402 7430.

Anthony Smith, CEO of W K Webster said: “We are absolutely delighted to be launching our US Hull and Marine Liability Claims Service and that Liam has made the move to our New York office to lead it. Providing a Hull and Marine Liability service from within the US comes in response to a growing demand from our US and overseas clients and adds to the significant Cargo and Recoveries presence we already maintain in our New York office. We have no doubt that Liam will prove to be a great success in this exciting new venture and we wish him all the best in his new role”.
