Based in Marseille with a network of offices and contacts in North Africa, West Africa, East African and the Indian Ocean ports, ETIC, via its African arm “AFRICA P&I”, can provide immediate attendance and first hand accurate information on any problem using professionals on the ground, thus permitting principals to make rapid decisions on the further handling of the problem.
At ETIC we are well aware that the intervention of a coordinating office must represent a clear and accountable “added value” and bear this in mind when handling cases.
In addition to the conventional handling of cargo and other third party liability claims in Africa, ETIC is well placed to handle the delicate problem of stowaways and works closely with both people on the ground and professional companies specialising in this matter.
ETIC via “AFRICA P&I” comprises a network of professionals (technical, legal and commercial) based on the African continent with a solid reputation in areas where expertise and experience count, where an understanding of local risks is paramount and where an immediate response to a problem is the key to successful loss prevention and risk management.
We understand the client’s needs and speak their language. Our colleagues in Africa are in tune with local conditions.
This combination is designed to provide service and value to your business wherever you may be involved on the African continent.
Within the company, we also offer professional legal services to those involved in the luxury yacht field and a specialised section handles all aspects of personal injury cases, to include repatriation of injured crew at sea.
