Founded in 2014, IHMCo is owned and managed by Ieuan (Ian) Dolby, ex Chief Engineer, Superintendent and Marine Consultant / Surveyor. Ieuan is currently working on a variety of cases for lawyers, adjusters and claim handlers, providing in-depth and concise, qualified advice and opinion.

Here at IHMCo we always strive to produce the best result from any occurrence or incident. Our work ethic centres on producing detailed yet concise reports. But we also adhere to a client-orientated approach, to only accept work we are capable of, and then to do it to the best of our ability.
