overview

Ship arrest is an excellent way to get security for a claim and potentially prepare for a judicial sale of the vessel. This may be a suitable remedy for a variety of creditors, such as owners that need to repossess the vessel under the charterparty, bunker suppliers that have not been paid, a bank that has terminated the loan facility and wishes to draw on its mortgage, or crew members that have outstanding wages.

At this training course, attendees will learn the law and arrest procedures in Singapore, Hong Kong, UK, US, Australia and, in relation to the associated ship arrest, South Africa. The course will examine the types of claims that can lead to arrest and assess the admiralty jurisdictions in different parts of the world.

The course also combines lectures, discussions, and practical case studies relating to ship arrests which aim to demystify legal terms and issues, explain practicalities of arrests, and highlight pitfalls and solutions to manage them better.

Key Learning Outcomes & Case Studies Include

  • Bankruptcy proceedings by owners and implications
  • The UNCITRAL Model Law on Cross-Border Insolvency, including Singapore’s proposed
    adoption of it
