Disagreements can arise at any stage of the maritime cycle, from newbuilding and repairs to salvage, pollution, bunker and cargo claims. Charterparties are also a major source of disputes.
The key to resolving disputes effectively is to understand the range of options available, from informal meetings all the way up to litigation. With the aim of avoiding complex and costly legal proceedings where unnecessary, this course familiarises you with the alternatives, including negotiation and mediation.
There is a special focus on arbitration, being one of the primary methods of dispute resolution used in the maritime industry.
