The maritime and offshore sector is an international one, with highly capital intensive assets and a dominant role for knowledge. Only consultants with a track record, knowledge and an international network are able to speak and understand this langage and are able to add value for their clients. To optimize the services for the maritime and offshore sector a specialized sector team has been formed in which the knowledge, network and skills of the participating offices is bundled. These combined skills give the Global M&A Maritime and Offshore Forum the power to handle major strategic, M&A and restructuring opportunities.
Overcapacity in the shipping sector, the offshore sector and shipbuilding sector put pressure on rates which influence the performance of the companies.
