Olga Fotinopoulou Basurko, José Manuel Martín Osante

New Trends in Maritime Law: Maritime Liens, Arrest of Ships, Mortgages and Forced Sales is a collection of articles analysing in detail the protection of maritime and port creditors from an international perspective. The contributors -professionals and academics from both common and civil law jurisdictions- address a broad range of issues: maritime liens, mortgages, arrests and forced sale of vessels. They identify the problems posed by current legislation and offer appropriate solutions. The book also provides a coordinated study of maritime law specialities and general aspects of civil and commercial law and proposes mechanisms for protecting crew members, with solutions related to applicable law and jurisdiction for maritime and port claims.
