International Arbitration in Switzerland

By Stefanie Pfisterer, Anton K. Schnyder

Switzerland - with its geographical situation and political stability - has become a popular place for arbitration. The tradition of being a neutral place of arbitration, the appeal of Swiss law, and the modern lex arbitri have leveraged Switzerland's prominent standing. The country is one of the most important centers of international arbitration today. This book illustrates the current legal situation of international arbitration in Switzerland by presenting the legal environment through references to important rules for arbitration in Switzerland (in particular, the Swiss Rules of International Arbitration, the Rules of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce ICC, and the UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules). The structure of the book follows a well-established pattern, beginning with the basics of the arbitration agreement, the course of arbitral proceedings up to the arbitral award, and its recognition and enforcement in Switzerland and abroad.
