About the Book

The book provides a specific guide to maritime arbitration rather than simply a commentary on the 1996 Act; in particular because significant practical issues are not dealt with directly by the Act, for example, confidentiality, freezing orders and anti-suit injunctions. The third edition includes: • A brand new chapter on mediation • A full introduction to new LMAA Intermediate Claims Procedure (2009) • Comprehensive coverage of the new LMAA Terms (2006) and LMAA/Baltic Exchange Mediation Terms (2009) • Substantial new case law since last edition, including The Front Comor, Fiona Trust, Emmott v Michael Wilson, C v D • Discussion of new law on anti-suit injunctions and antiarbitration injunctions • New extended sections on the impact of human rights and competition law
