This text provides an explanation of the responsibilities and liabilities of the shipbroker, both in direct contact with principles and as part of a chain of other brokers.

Highlighting legal questions arising from ways in which the broker's business is done, issues addressed in this book include potential legal liabilities as well as common negligence claims. The book also deals with the shipbroker's entitlement to commission and the problems associated with litigation in this area.

It is suitable for ship owners, charterers, agents and marine consultants, as well as brokers.
