The PRESTIGE case

The PRESTIGE case

In November 2002 the “Prestige” oil tanker broke and sank while carrying 77,000 tons of heavy fuel oil, causing a major oil spill and becoming one of the largest maritime disasters in recent history.
Ever since then, San Simón & Duch has successfully defended the vessel charterers and cargo owners.
