Quadrant Chambers Announces Recent Publications

Tue, 05 April, 2016

Quadrant Chambers is pleased to announce the publications of both the new 2nd Edition of The Law and Practice of Admiralty Matters, by Sarah Derrington and James M. Turner QC, and the new 14th edition of Marsden on Collisions at Sea, for which Simon Gault was a general editor and Thomas Macey-Dare a contributing editor.

Marsden on Collisions at Sea is the undisputed authority in its field. The new edition contains substantial commentary on recent legislation across the board in shipping law from some of the world’s leading shipping law authors and academics. Marsden examines existing and recent case law and regulatory developments, especially the new International Convention on Wrecks, with enhanced coverage of underwater cultural property and treasure, and it will offer greater coverage of international conventions and decisions, as well as the awards system of salvage arbitrators. Details of how to obtain a copy can be found here.


The Law and Practice of Admiralty Matters, published by Oxford University Press, is unique in its comparative approach to the jurisdiction of the Admiralty Court, with coverage of the law and practice not just in England and Wales, but in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Singapore, Hong Kong and South Africa.  It has been fully revised and updated with significant developments in both the substantive law and procedural rules, including changes to the 1976 Limitation Convention and to the rules on stay for arbitration, the jurisprudence on arrest procedures and cross-border insolvencies, as well as judicial and academic evaluations of the true nature of a maritime lien. Interactions with the recast Brussels jurisdiction and insolvency regulations are also discussed in this second edition.
