Read the chapter on shipbuilding contracts governed by the law of England and Wales.
Getting the Deal Through – Shipbuilding is part of the series of Getting the Deal Through law guides published by Law Business Research that provide an overview of specialist areas of the law in a variety of international jurisdictions. It is published annually and the eighth edition, published in May 2019, covers 13 jurisdictions. Leading practitioners from each jurisdiction answer the same key questions.
The chapter on shipbuilding contracts governed by the law of England and Wales has been updated this year to include the latest case law on force majeure and liquidated damages. In the Update and Trends section, they look at autonomous vessels, cybersecurity and the current status of the regulatory changes proposed by the IMO to deal with the environmental impact of ships.
Many of the topics in this chapter will be covered in more detail in the new 5th edition of the Law of Shipbuilding Contracts which is due to be published later in 2019.
