This dissertation was written as part of the MSc in Transnational and European Commercial Law, Mediation, Arbitration and Energy Law at the International Hellenic University. The economic crisis that started in 2008 never ended and a consequence had negative effect in the global economy, including the transportation sector. Maritime entities, as many other businesses, confronted significant difficulties and some of them went bankrupt. The most valuable assets of a maritime company are usually its vessels and every creditor or other person with a claim will seek liquidise them in order to satisfy its claims. The controversy begins where the claims arise from the two aforesaid branches of law and which one should take priority over the other. In each case until now there is no compromising solution. This thesis attempted to depict the controversy between the two branches of law and the proposed solutions. In order to achieve that, it was necessary to examine the nature of the maritime lien, the procedures in Admiralty and Bankruptcy law. Both branches of law have to overcome many obstacles in order for this controversy to be resolved. On the one hand, maritime liens are not everywhere the same and there is an issue of recognition in some countries. On the other hand, there rules for transnational bankruptcies but there are not adopted from every country. As a consequence, the solution of the problem becomes more difficult to be found when there are Admiralty and Bankruptcy proceedings for the same assets. The aforesaid controversy was depicted through the analysis of three different legal regimes, the UK’s, the USA’s and Canada’s. Although these three legal regimes are considered to be similar due to the fact that all of them are connected by the common law, their development through time led them to different legal directions. Finally, there is a small analysis of three cases which depict the how the Courts interpret this conflict between Admiralty and Bankruptcy law (EN)
