W K Webster launches US Hull & Marine Liability Claims service

Marine and transit claims consultants WK Webster, which has hub offices in London, Singapore and New York, plus other offices in Rotterdam and Los Angeles, has launched 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 part of the company’s Hull and Liability operation in London.

The new US based Hull and Liability service complements the existing offerings provided from the London and Singapore offices. All Hull & Liability enquires for the Americas should be directed to Liam at wrichards@wkwebsteroverseas.com or +1 212 402 7430.

WK Webster CEO Anthony Smith said that “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”.
