Frequently Asked Questions

A joint venture between the West of England P&I Club and leading claims and legal consultancy C Solutions.

As partners, we will work closely together to meet the needs of ship operators, developing new and innovative products to help support our clients in their daily operations.

Qwest provides services to ship operators that they cannot get from traditional sources such as P&I Clubs or other marine insurers.

These range from ground up legal advice and claims investigation and handling, to products designed to protect the ship operator’s cashflow. They can be purchased separately or as a bespoke bundle to meet individual needs.

The day to day claims handling will be provided by experienced marine professionals and qualified lawyers from a global network of offices, all conveniently placed to help resolve the issue. With rapid response times, our advice is commercial and pragmatic.

No. The services offered are designed to appeal to all ship operators and can be moulded around an operator’s current insurance and other arrangements, wherever they are placed. We can deliver a bespoke package to meet the individual needs.    


We welcome a direct approach through the website or to one of our key contacts from an operator or their broker. Whichever point of entry, we will engage with you for a detailed discussion of your needs and how Qwest can help you.
