A&A Multiprime´s dispute resolution legal team has successfully defended its clients in 3 large precedent-setting maritime law cases involving proceedings in Colombia. These proceedings were:

  1. The firm represented the owners of MV Stadt Bremen (and their P&I) in a complex litigation relating to a Grounding in Barranquilla and the payment of approx. USD 1,2 million made by 7 local insurers due to a General Average declared. The Courts followed our defenses and the ship was fully exonerated in first and second instance in 2019.
  2. The firm represented the owners of MV Wasaborg  (and their P&I) in a multijurisdictional litigation relating to a cargo loss claim for approx. USD 1 Million due to Hurricane Sandy. The ship was recently fully exonerated in first instance and the appeal is ongoing.
  3. The firm represented the Danish ship-owners of a vessel (and their P&I) in a USD 7 Million claim filed by the terminal, due to a collision in Cartagena between the Ship and the terminal. Once the litigation had started, after very difficult negotiations we managed to achieve a “drop hands” solution where the terminal fully withdrew their claim in Colombia, and Member/Club refrained from starting a C/P claim in London.

As one of Colombia’s leading shipping practices, we are glad to keep delivering good results to our principals.
