Commercial shipping is a global industry with inherent risks and capital intensive. Due to the nature and composition of the stakeholders, disputes are not uncommon.
In recent decades, arbitration has emerged as a dominant force and preferred choice for dispute resolution in shipping. Against this backdrop, it is hardly surprising that most maritime contracts include an arbitration clause, reference marine insurance, bill of lading, salvage, charterparties, sales of goods , sale & purchase, agency agreement, etc.
With established arbitration centers in London, New York and emergence of new centers in Singapore and China, growth and popularity of this form of dispute resolution is gaining further prominence.
