We are a leading international loss adjusting team, primarily focused on resolving physical damage and business interruption claims arising from losses across all the natural resource industries.

We recognise that our clients have varying wants and needs. This may be a case of different underwriting philosophies, or simply a factor of the complexities of any particular claim. We listen to our clients and respond promptly to their needs and work with all stakeholders to deliver a successful outcome to a claim.

We offer three primary and coordinated service lines, supported by over one hundred experts; Upstream Energy, Green Energy, and Onshore Energy and Mining.
