About this Item

Neuware - By their very nature, ships do not stay put. They are also uniquely vulnerable to arrest. The good sense of a work which covers the law of arrest in multiple significant maritime jurisdictions is not hard to see. Derrington & Turner should be at the elbow of lawyers, insurers, ship owners, and maritime claimants across the globe. In addition to its practical value, the scholarly and uniquely comparative approach taken by this book advances the understanding of the law practised in the Admiralty jurisdictions, particularly in an era when the sheer volume of decisions produced by the future Lord Brandon are a distant and fast-receding memory. As with the first edition of this well-regarded work, difficult and unsettled points of law are analysed alongside considered illustrations drawn from the case law of England, Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Singapore and South Africa. The book has been fully revised and updated with significant developments in both the substantive admiralty law and procedural rules of major jurisdictions, including changes to the conventions which affect limitation of liability on a ship owner and to the rules on stay for arbitration, the jurisprudence of arrest procedures and cross-border insolvencies, and judicial and academic evaluations of the true nature of a maritime lien. Interactions with the recast Brussels jurisdiction regulation are also discussed in this second edition. 448 pp. Englisch. Bookseller Inventory # 9780198729556

About this title

Synopsis:

By their very nature, ships do not stay put. They are also uniquely vulnerable to arrest. The good sense of a work which covers the law of arrest in multiple significant maritime jurisdictions is not hard to see. Derrington & Turner should be at the elbow of lawyers, insurers, ship owners, and maritime claimants across the globe. In addition to its practical value, the scholarly and uniquely comparative approach taken by this book advances the understanding of the law practised in the Admiralty jurisdictions, particularly in an era when the sheer volume of decisions produced by the future Lord Brandon are a distant and fast-receding memory.

As with the first edition of this well-regarded work, difficult and unsettled points of law are analysed alongside considered illustrations drawn from the case law of England, Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Singapore and South Africa.

The book has been fully revised and updated with significant developments in both the substantive admiralty law and procedural rules of major jurisdictions, including changes to the conventions which affect limitation of liability on a ship owner and to the rules on stay for arbitration, the jurisprudence of arrest procedures and cross-border insolvencies, and judicial and academic evaluations of the true nature of a maritime lien. Interactions with the recast Brussels jurisdiction regulation are also discussed in this second edition.

Review:

Review from previous edition [A] very fine book ... skilfully structured ... which provides the reader with a clear and readable exposition of a fascinating area of law and practice. It is well researched, comprehensive, contemporary and discerning ... [and] represents a significant contribution to the literature. ( Journal of International Maritime Law, Vol. 13 (2007))
