The seventh edition of this book aims to continue to provide those involved in handling shipping disputes with an overview of the key issues relevant to multiple jurisdictions. We have again invited contributions on the law of leading maritime nations, including both major flag states and the countries in which most shipping companies are located. We also include chapters on the law of the major shipbuilding centres and a range of other jurisdictions.
The Transport Finance Law Review is intended to provide the industry with a guide to transport finance today, in each of the key jurisdictions globally in which aircraft, rolling stock and ships are financed. The aviation, rail and shipping industries each have their own unique characteristics and need lawyers with a deep understanding of how each of these complex industries operates. We have sought contributions from jurisdictions that play a leading role in the financing of transport assets. Each chapter provides an overview of the transport finance industry in these jurisdictions.
This edition covers 15 countries and territories and includes a high-level overview of each jurisdiction’s product liability framework, recent changes and developments, and a look forward at expected trends. Each chapter contains a brief introduction to the country’s product liability framework, followed by four main sections: regulatory oversight, causes of action, litigation, and the year in review.
We are delighted to present the second edition of The Insurance Disputes Law Review. The first edition was very well received and demonstrated both the need and the very active interest, evident across the globe, in the legal frameworks for insurance and, in particular, in the insight that the developing disputes arena provides into this fascinating area. To be as user-friendly as possible, each chapter follows the same format – first providing an overview of the key framework for dealing with disputes, and then giving an update of recent developments in disputes.
