The Law of Demurrage by Hugo Tiberg is one of the most respected titles in its field, presenting a
thorough treatment of all aspects of laytime and demurrage.
It examines both the legal and commercial aspects of the subject, explaining what actually happens in port during laytime and how demurrage can arise, alongside detailed examination of legal principles and the contractual and liability issues involved.
In what is an inherently international area of law, it provides not only a UK common law perspective but also covers civil law principles, together with examination of case law from Scandinavia, China, Japan
and other key maritime jurisdictions.
