Claims TPA

We have a strong and successful philosophy of Bespoke Account Management that caters for a client’s specific requirements. Our comprehensive claims management system allows for detailed and real-time reporting, on claims activity, not only meeting the reporting requirements of the Lloyds market but the individual demands of our clients.

Utilising our comprehensive global claims management platform, we operate a seamless transaction between our claim and recovery teams and across the globe.

As a company, we know that we are defined by the quality of our people and the service we provide to our clients. As such, we have always followed a principle of building a group of experts in their field, driven by a focus to deliver a high level service to our clients.


The Recoveries team within Pequod USA are committed to maximising returns for clients in all manner of recovery and subrogation challenges and on a global basis with the support of our global headquarters in the UK.

This service is presented to our clients on a “no win, no fee” basis and a number of tailored products are available, including enhanced schemes where Pequod will meet all associated legal and enforcement costs.
Recoveries are affected by all manner of cargo and stock throughput losses with key areas of expertise in recoveries on commodities, project cargo, reefer goods, oil and oil products.

Salvage & General Average

On General Average (GA) cases, depending upon the circumstances and merits involved, we seek to resist any GA claim and resolve matters as expediently as possible. We charge on a contingency fee basis for any saving achieved against the GA demand.

This service has proved of considerable interest to a number of existing and new clients, resulting in the posting of GA and Salvage security on an increasing number of single and multi-interest casualties. Finally, for those matters which require litigation in London, Pequod can call upon a high level of legal expertise at extremely competitive rates.

Hull & Marine Liabilities

With a combination of seafaring experience and in-house employment at P&I Clubs encompassing some 75 years, the team at Pequod have a detailed insight into all aspects of SOL, charterers’ liability and P&I defence work.

This expertise extends to matters as complex and diverse as general average & salvage, damage to hull, RDC & FFO claims, yard disputes, pollution, stowaways, crew & personal injury cases, policy disputes and the recovery of unpaid sums.

Pequod has undertaken such work for ship owners, charterers, International Group P&I Clubs, fixed premium P&I insurers, underwriters at Lloyd’s Of London, and operators and brokers in the US, the UK, Turkey, Russia, Hong Kong, Singapore and Greece.
