London Maritime Arbitration 2nd Edition

Navi Mumbai, Maharashtra India (PressExposure) October 01, 2007 -- Bharat Book Bureau, a leading market information aggregator has put forth a report -London Maritime Arbitration 2nd Edition ([http://www.bharatbook.com/detail.asp?id=26011]) This new edition has been fully updated and revised to focus on arbitration under the Terms of the London Maritime Arbitrators Association (LMAA). The LMAA are the world-wide leaders in commercial maritime dispute resolution. The book contains detailed commentary on how LMAA arbitrations are handled in practice.

There is specific discussion of the changes introduced by the new LMAA Terms (2002), in particular relating to procedure and arbitrators' fees. The book has benefited from the advice of Bruce Harris, the leading maritime arbitrator whose invaluable knowledge and experience has given the book a direct insight into maritime arbitration. Bruce also wrote the forword. Revised and updated

The second edition has been revised and updated to include: Developments in the light of the fundamental changes introduced by the Arbitration Act 1996. Case law interpreting the Arbitration Act 1996 and other developments such as the new LMAA Terms and the Civil Procedure Rules. A new chapter on confidentiality. The structure of the book continues to follow that of the previous edition.

New legislative developments

The Arbitration Act 1996 now provides an accessible legal framework but arbitration continues to throw up extremely difficult problems for laymen and experienced specialists alike. The authors have used their practical experience and extensive legal research to give a clear explanation of how the law works and what factors influence LMAA arbitrators. 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.

New case law

There has been important case law on the 1996 Act: more than 50 cases a year. The principles underlying these cases are fully explained and case summaries are provided to put those principles in context. In addition the new edition covers the new Civil Procedure Rules on arbitration and important practical issues that remain relatively uncharted territory: the impact of the Human Rights Act 1998 and the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999.
