As a practice-oriented examination of international arbitration in Switzerland, this handy volume has no peers. It offers a complete review of each of the different phases of international arbitral proceedings, from drafting of the arbitration clause to challenge and enforcement of the award. It pays close attention to all essential aspects, including procedure before the arbitral tribunal, interim measures, confidentiality, and many other topics. In addition, this book contains a detailed review of Swiss and Swiss-based dispute resolution institutions and rules, as well as a chapter on mediation.
All of the contributors are practising lawyers with experience in the field of international arbitration, as counsel and/or as arbitrator. The reader can expect a thoroughly practical approach, with the necessary theoretical support and extensive references to case law and legal commentary. Appendices contain a checklist for drafting arbitration clauses, English translations of Swiss legislation relevant to international arbitration, and the new Swiss Rules of International Arbitration (which are the subject of a commentary in one of the chapters).
As well as addressing the latest developments in international commercial arbitration, International Arbitration in Switzerland examines sports arbitration (with a focus on the Court of Arbitration for Sport) and Swiss-based public international law dispute settlement mechanisms, such as the WTO and the UNCC.
This book will be of special interest to in-house or external counsel when considering whether to agree on arbitration in Switzerland, to counsel representing parties in arbitrations in Switzerland or in related court proceedings, and to arbitrators themselves.
