Limitation of Liability in International Maritime Conventions The Relationship between Global Limitation Conventions and Particular Liability Regimes

Limitation of Liability in International Maritime Conventions The Relationship between Global Limitation Conventions and Particular Liability Regimes

Author: Norman A. Martinez Gutierrez Format: Hardback Release Date: 01/01/2021

Limitation of liability for maritime claims is a concept of respectable antiquity which is now deeply entrenched in the maritime industry. Under this concept, the shipowner is entitled to limit his liability for maritime claims up to a maximum sum regardless of the actual amount of the claims. The concept of limitation of liability has been adopted by many conventions ranging from those relating to the carriage of goods by sea, carriage of passengers and their luggage by sea, liability and compensation for pollution damage, to liability for the removal of wrecks. Each of these conventions has its own approach to limitation of liability. However, these particular liability regimes share the international arena with global limitation conventions such as the 1976 Convention on Limitation of Liability for Maritime Claims and the 1996 Protocol thereto. This book approaches limitation of liability from an international perspective looking at a number of key conventions including the global limitation conventions, the conventions relating to the carriage of passengers and their luggage by sea (1974 Athens Convention relating to the Carriage of Passengers and Their Luggage by Sea and the 2002 Protocol thereto), conventions relating to liability and compensation for pollution damage (1969 International Convention on Civil Liability for Oil Pollution Damage and the 1992 Protocol thereto, the 1996 International Convention on Liability and Compensation for Damage in Connection with the Carriage of Hazardous and Noxious Substances by Sea and the 2010 Protocol thereto, and the 2001 International Convention on Civil Liability for Bunker Oil Pollution Damage), as well as the 2007 Nairobi International Convention on the Removal of Wrecks. Each chapter of this book sets out to analyze provisions in the conventions which have proved to be controversial and subject to debate by courts and authors, as well as the relationship between the limitation provisions in claim specific liability conventions and in the global limitation conventions. Particular attention is also given to the persons entitled to limit liability, ships in respect of which liability can be limited, claims subject to limitation, claims excepted from limitation, basis of liability (where applicable), loss of the right to limit, and the limits of liability. Limitation of Liability in International Maritime Conventions is of interest to academics and practicing lawyers who wish to understand the intricacies of the law of limitation.

Laytime and Demurrage

Laytime and Demurrage

Author: Trond (Scandinavian Institute of Maritime Law, Norway) Solvang Format: Hardback Release Date: 01/01/2021

This book discusses the law of laytime and demurrage from a comparative perspective, drawing on UK, US and Norwegian/Scandinavian case law. Shipping is an international industry and contracts which are used in the chartering of ships are made out in the English language and reflect Anglo-American legal culture in the way they are drafted. Anglo-American legal influence is further enhanced by the fact that the standard charter forms in use normally contain English or American choice of law as part of their standard term. Such international dominance of Anglo-American law affects Norwegian law in two major ways. Firstly, Norwegian background law can be affected in that the provisions of the Maritime Code to a greater or lesser extent are adjusted to suit Anglo-American law solutions. Secondly, influence may be exerted via Norwegian case law in that questions of interpretation of charterparties under Norwegian law are affected by Anglo-American law solutions. Here, Solvang examines the law of laytime and demurrage from a comparative perspective, exploring to what extent it is advisable to adopt foreign law solutions to questions of construction of contracts. He also examines the implications of giving preferential treatment to foreign law at a domestic level. This book will be of great interest to scholars and practitioners of maritime and shipping law.

Charterparties

Charterparties

Author: Filippo (University of Southampton, UK) Lorenzon Format: Hardback Release Date: 01/01/2021

At a time of great volatility in the shipping market, indemnities, guarantees and recourse actions are becoming increasingly common issues. Although the commercial purpose of such devices is reasonably straightforward, their enforcement gives rise to a number of complex legal issues spanning from jurisdiction and conflict of law to equitable devices. With the aim of unravelling these complexities, this collection of papers explores the topical issue of indemnities, recourse and collaterals in chartering. Bringing together papers by world leading scholars in the field, the book examines a number of crucial issues including the master to sign bills of lading as presented; the knock for knock principle, bailment and general principles of indemnity and contribution. This edited collection will be of great interest to academics and legal practitioners dealing with charter party disputes based on English, American and international maritime law.

Maritime Cross-Border Insolvency under the UNCITRAL Model Law Regime

Maritime Cross-Border Insolvency under the UNCITRAL Model Law Regime

Author: Jingchen (National University of Singapore) Xu Format: Hardback Release Date: 10/12/2020

This book covers the pressing issues of cross-border cases involving admiralty and bankruptcy law. For example, what should happen when a shipowner files an insolvency proceeding in one country, while at the same time facing an in rem action against its vessel in another country? Should the in rem action arising in one country be stayed or dismissed because of the existence of insolvency proceedings in another country? The book discusses the relevant issues regarding the treatment of maritime creditors throughout insolvency proceedings, the determination of the 'centre of main interest' of an offshore shipping company, and the scope of a debtor's assets. The author uses a comparative law analysis, selecting four leading shipping countries - Australia, the UK, the US, and Singapore - examining their approaches to the above three problems when applying the UNCITRAL Model Law regime. The book also proposes a solution to help eliminate the ambiguity arising from maritime cross-border insolvency cases under the UNCITRAL Model law regime, with a view to enhancing the development of the shipping industry.
