Thought to be the most comprehensive guide to English law relating to ship mortgages, the second edition of The Law of Ship Mortgages has been highly anticipated. This fully-updated and complete explanation provides practitioners with a practical, commercially-based, and definitive guide to the English law of ship mortgages as well as important related areas such as conflict of laws and insolvency.
The authors, being seasoned practitioners themselves, bring their practical experience to bear on a number of difficult and developing areas of the law, such as: mortgagees’ duties, liability to charterers, conflicts of laws, work-outs and cross border insolvency.
New to this edition:
Written with practitioners in mind, this new edition will be extremely useful to legal professionals working in any jurisdiction that is involved in international ship finance, as well as post-graduate students and academics.
"…this new edition provides a comprehensive, knowledgeable, yet practical resource…
Lawyers and academics alike are usually more familiar with mortgages, and other security interests, taken over land. This book is illuminating in comparing and contrasting the different challenges faced in constructing a security framework over a moveable chattel whose operation spans the globe and is intimately connected with international trade.
All in all, this book is a valuable addition to many book shelves…the expertise of the authors in the law governing ship mortgages is evident on every page."
