Fichte & Co is highly experienced at dealing with disputes that originate from bill of lading documents. One of the most common problems is the clausing or non-clausing of the bill by the master. Another frequent problem occurs when the bill of lading is not in place when the ship arrives to the consignee, the master delivers the cargo without receiving the bill of lading, or if he delivers against a forged bill of lading.
Fichte & Co assists ship owners and cargo owners in all these matters and offers advice for avoiding potential claims when the client is uncertain of the legal consequences of their actions.
At Fichte & Co, Managing Partner Jasmin Fichte leads a team that is ‘impeccable, in all areas.’ It handles an array of high-value claims for international clients and government entities.
