Legal Issues in Bunkering: An Introduction to the Law Relating to the Sale & Use of Marine Fuels, First Edition July 2011
This comprehensive book provides a wealth of information on the key legal aspects of bunkering including contracts, defaults, ship arrest and dispute resolution; there is also a section dealing with international conventions and national legislation on environmental issues relevant to bunkering.
Whilst not intended as a substitute for detailed legal advice, this book will help the reader understand legal matters and point him in the right direction should professional help be required.
Legal Issues in Bunkering will help the reader to avoid expensive legal mistakes and show him where to turn when things go wrong. It should be kept on the desk of every trader and broker, owner and charterer, and maritime lawyer, arbitrator, regulator and government agency.
Legal Issues in Bunkering covers issues that one might expect to find in a volume ten times larger, distilling the salient points and summarising the more arcane bits.
It is extremely unusual to find a book that not only covers some of the rudiments of maritime law but does so in a light, simple and amusing style that not only engages the reader but also leaves him better informed and eager to learn more.
