A-Law Advocaten/Knops Publishing, 2023

Dirk De Beule, attorney at law in Antwerp, Belgium, has published a handbook on the topic of ship arrests. In his newly published Dutch language handbook, he provides a comprehensive legal and practical overview of the topic in this modern day and age. In the well documented handbook, the author guides the reader with ease through the complicated subject matter of arrest of seagoing ships.

In their respective forewords, Belgian Minister of Justice and North Sea Minister (as he was), Vincent Van Quickenborne, and Port alderman of Port of Antwerp-Bruges, Annick De Ridder, underline the importance of ship arrests as an important instrument in international trade and particularly as a means to obtain security for maritime claims. They praise the author for his excellent work and contribution to maritime legal science.
