Britannia Club names new correspondent

Britannia P&I has established a new correspondent, B Americas P&I, to be based in New York. Britannia said that the exclusive correspondent would be headed by Michael Unger, “a leading maritime lawyer with extensive litigation and arbitration experience, who has been known to the Club for many years”.

Further recruitment was in process and the office was expected to be operational by the beginning of April.

Britannia said that B Americas would boost Britannia’s global footprint, “enhancing the Club’s ability to provide a round-the-clock claims service to all its Members, while also focusing on the needs of Britannia’s North American Members”.
