of practice

Gerald Duron founded Marine Consultant in Marseille, the major Mediterranean port city, in 2000. The Firm, which is completely independent, provides a full claims management service in relation to issues arising from the carriage of goods by sea. 



In addition to general insurance-related advice, Marine Consultant is able to provide clients with surveying assistance, to negotiate letters of undertaking, and to pursue recovery claims on a ‘No Win No Fee’ basis through the court and arbitration systems, if amicable settlement is not possible.


of success

By acting on a ‘No Win No Fee’ basis, Marine Consultant shares in the possibility of an uncertain outcome with its clients. In the case of no recovery, clients only have to bear certain limited third party expenses (ie an arbitrator’s appointment fee), which are occasionally incurred in order to progress matters, provided of course that such expenses have been agreed upon in advance.
Marine Consultant offers the services of a highly proficient team.
We are ready to answer all of your insurance needs, and to take the appropriate recovery steps in an area where responsiveness and efficiency are essential.
Marine Consultant is particularly active in West Africa and Europe, albeit the Firm provides assistance and intervention worldwide.
The Firm continues to grow, and looks to the future with ambition an energy.
