Robert Hoepel is a dispute resolution lawyer in AKD’s Transport & Energy team based in Rotterdam, which he joined after obtaining his MA in Civil Law from Leiden University in 2009. Robert specialises in all areas of marine and energy insurance and shipping disputes. Robert acts for ship owners and their insurers, both H&M and P&I, in relation to collision, salvage, shipbuilding and wreck removal. A significant part of Robert’s practice concerns marine insurance coverage disputes, involving a wide range of insurance policies that deal with both marine and energy, such as the Dutch Institute Time Clauses Hull, the Dutch Bourse Policy for Inland Hull, pleasure yacht insurance and CAR. He regularly advises on marine insurance policies that are subject to Dutch law but contain standard London market clauses and/or include standard market wording. He spent four months on secondment with a major insurer on the London market. Robert is a member of the Dutch Transport Law Association (Nederlandse Vereniging voor Vervoerrecht, NVV) and of the Transport Law Commission of AIJA (Association Internationale des Jeunes Avocats). Robert is the editor of Schip & Schade, a monthly publication on maritime and insurance law.
