Global marine, energy, and offshore consultancy service provider AqualisBraemar has established an office in Moscow, Russia.

Yan Nikitin will head up the Moscow office, which will primarily focus on loss adjusting services. This involves the investigation and resolution of insurance claims and commercial disputes within the energy (offshore and onshore), power and marine industries.

Allan Kelly, managing director of AqualisBraemar’s loss adjusting business for Europe and Africa said: “Russia is a significant and important market with many prospective clients that can benefit from our extensive specialist knowledge from resolving insurance claims in both onshore and offshore industries.

“Having a formal and permanent presence in Russia will make it easier for both Russian and international companies to utilise our services here,” he added.
