James Rawes is a long established Lisbon based Group. We are Port Agents, Claims, Survey and Settling Agents.
The Company was born in the early 1860’s from a partnership between two British gentlemen, Richard Knowles and James Rawes Jnr, who set up business together as traders in Lisbon under the name of “Knowles, Rawes & Co”. In 1866 the company was nominated Agents for the Royal Mail Lines, who at the time operated a regular service from the UK via Lisbon to/from South America as well as Agents for The Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Company (now P&O Cruises) our Lisbon Office has been Agents for Lloyd’s of London since October of 1873.
In January of 1896 the company’s name was changed to “James Rawes & Co” and in 1946 to “James Rawes & Ca Lda”. At the end of 2009 it was decided, for commercial reasons that the structure of the company should change and as of March 2010 James Rawes became a Holding Company under the name of James Rawes SGPS, Lda detaining three companies; James Rawes – Navegação, Lda (Shipping Division), James Rawes – Peritagens, Lda (Surveys and Claims Division) and James Rawes – Turismo, Lda (Tour Operator Division). In August 2015, James Rawes Turismo was sold back to the Rawes family and left the Holding Company.
Although the Company is no longer 100% family owned, having taken on a partner in 1992 the Rawes family are still present in the daily running of the company, Malcolm Lancelot Rawes, who is the founders’ great grandson, is currently joint Managing Director and still has an active participation in the Companies business. The group is now into it’s fifth generation of Rawes’ with Catarina Rawes, daughter of Malcolm and great, great granddaughters of the founder James Rawes having joined the company in 1998 and becoming joint Managing Director of James Rawes Navegação, Lda in 2015.
We are one of the oldest Port Agents and Claims, Survey and Settling Agents in Portugal, having offered a dedicated service for over a century and we are still considered one of the main Companies in Portugal in these fields.
