The previous editions of this book have established themselves among the leading authorities on Swiss arbitration law. This fully revised and amended third edition provides up-to-date information on the law and practice of international and domestic arbitration in Switzerland. The book provides a comprehensive analysis of all relevant aspects of international and domestic arbitration in Switzerland, addressing all major issues, including the concept and sources of arbitration, arbitrability, the arbitration agreement, competence-competence and the autonomy of the arbitration agreement, the arbitral tribunal, the arbitral procedure, the arbitral award, setting aside proceedings against the award and the enforcement of arbitral awards, including the recognition and enforcement of foreign arbitral awards. Frequently referred to by the Swiss Federal Supreme Court in its case law, the book is an indispensable tool for legal scholars conducting an in-depth analysis of a controversial issue. At the same time, it is an invaluable and user-friendly source of information and reference for arbitration practitioners in Switzerland and abroad. The book's appendices contain useful additional materials, including a detailed table of cases and a most accurate translation of the provisions on arbitration of the Swiss Code of Civil Procedure and the Swiss Statute on Private International Law.

The Practitioner's Handbook on International Arbitration and Mediation, 3rd Edition is a unique work with each chapter written by a well-known practitioner and expert in the field. It covers each step of the international arbitration and mediation process and offers separate chapters that summarize the laws of leading arbitral venues. This Handbook is intended to make the reader into a better practitioner or arbitrator/mediator. Moreover, each chapter has been written to provide practical advice and guidance. Unlike many works with multiple authors, this work is not simply a collection of essays on a general subject. This book is a unified work with cross references among the chapters and a consistent format throughout. The Practitioner's Handbook is divided into three parts. Part One describes in detail each step of the international arbitration process and offers tips. Part Two deals with each step and facet of an international mediation. Each of these chapters is filled with Practitioners’ Expert Commentary. Part Three summarizes the laws of leading arbitral jurisdictions, like Hong Kong, England, Switzerland, and France. These chapters give you detailed guidance on the laws governing international arbitration in that particular jurisdiction. As a result, the chapters in Part Three are a bit more technical as the authors realized that the reader would need citations to and commentary on the local arbitration statutes and rules. The CD ROM that accompanies this Work contains relevant original source material that is germane to the text. A review of the table of contents of the material contained on the CD ROM will acquaint you with the range of material covered.

It further suggests that a law of international arbitration has arisen from the various conventions and laws. Besides dealing with all the aspects of arbitration on a topic by topic basis, the writer presents a third generation arbitration which builds on analysis of major obstacles to a smooth running arbitration.International Arbitration Law and Practice, 3rd edition is a work that anyone involved in arbitral proceedings will find to be absolutely indispensable.

The Leading Arbitrators' Guide to International Arbitration Third Edition offers thoughtful advice and insights into the world of international arbitration from some of the most prominent and experienced international arbitrators in the world. The contributors are arbitrators from Australia, Belgium, Canada, Chile, Denmark, England, France, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the USA. The contributors offer insights and advice on the way in which international arbitrations are carried out from the point of view of arbitrators reading pleadings and memorials and listening to witnesses and hearing arguments. The authors' discussions are intended to be thoughtful, insightful and useful - and perhaps, occasionally, iconoclastic. As a result, there may be instances in which the authors disagree with one another on certain points. This is to be expected for there are often many routes that can be taken to achieve a result. The book will be useful not only to persons who may serve as arbitrators in internatinoal arbitral proceedings but also to those who may, in their position as advocates, wish to persuade persons -- including, perhaps, the authors.

Sports Arbitration: A Coach for Other Players? is not about sports arbitration. The reader may thus ask: Well, what is it about? Arbitration can take inspiration from other human activities, for instance sports. Does it follow that arbitration in general can take inspiration from sports arbitration? Can sports arbitration serve as an example, be it for better or worse? And if so, what are the limits of this? These questions are highly topical in today's world of arbitration. Faced with the increased duration and costs of arbitral proceedings, and with the perception that litigators instead of business people have taken over the process, more and more users are calling for a return to fast, inexpensive forms of dispute resolution that are conducted by persons of the trade. This has resulted in a series of initiatives to introduce trade-specific forms of dispute resolution based on fast-track arbitration proceedings in a wide range of business sectors.

A convenient, neutral location, with a long-standing tradition of arbitration, arbitration-friendly legislation, arbitration-supportive courts, and an exemplary infrastructure – for all of these reasons, parties often choose Switzerland as their preferred seat of arbitration. Switzerland continues to therefore play a leading role in the field of arbitration. This book, since its first edition in 2004, has been widely used as a peerless practitioners’ guide to international arbitration in Switzerland. Keeping in line with the first edition, this second edition describes in detail each phase of arbitral proceedings, from drafting the arbitration clause to challenge and enforcement of the award. The second edition continues to pay close attention to all aspects, including procedure before the arbitral tribunal, interim measures, confidentiality, the mediation alternative, and many other topics. The new edition has been extensively revised to take fully into account the newly amended Swiss Rules of International Arbitration, as well as numerous changes internationally, such as the revised ICC Rules and the revised UNCITRAL Rules. Many new decisions of the Swiss Federal Tribunal relating to arbitration are also considered, as is legal commentary. The second edition also features a chart comparing major institutional arbitration rules on all aspects of the arbitral process covered by those rules. There are also two entirely new chapters – one on the legislative framework of Swiss arbitration law, and one addressing costs of arbitration. The approach throughout is rigorously practice-oriented, adding theoretical support whenever necessary. With the help of this book, practitioners will proceed confidently as they approach such tasks as the following: drafting an effective arbitration clause and choosing between ad hoc and institutional arbitration; understanding the manner in which arbitral proceedings can be structured and evaluating what is best suited to their needs; weighing the possibilities of interim relief at their disposal; anticipating the duration and costs of proceedings; and assessing post-award options. Whilst focusing on the latest developments in international commercial arbitration, International Arbitration in Switzerland includes sections on sports arbitration (with a focus on the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Lausanne) and on Swiss-based public international law dispute settlement mechanisms, such as those of the WTO and the UNCC. The book provides useful answers to concrete questions that in-house lawyers, outside counsel, and arbitrators are confronted with when practicing international arbitration in Switzerland. With its wealth of practical expertise and up-to-date information, it will enable foreign in-house and external counsel to make the appropriate choices and decisions. It will be indispensable for all practitioners and academics interested in arbitration in Switzerland.

Post-Hearing Issues in International Arbitration includes articles that originally appeared in the Stockholm Arbitration Report (SAR) and the Stockholm International Arbitration Review (SIAR). All of the articles have been extensively revised and updated for this publication.

Part II attempts to navigate the interesting and often daunting review processes of an international arbitration award. Part III considers a blend of international arbitration recognition and enforcement issues, including jurisdictional hurdles, public policy concerns, primary defences, and the practical requirements of a successful claim.

Grundthese des Buches ist, dass ein Paradigmenwechsel stattgefunden hat, der den Menschen zum primaren Volkerrechtssubjekt macht. Diese These wird vor dem Hintergrund der Ideengeschichte und Dogmatik der Volkerrechtspersonlichkeit des Menschen entfaltet und auf die Rechtspraxis in zahlreichen Teilrechtsgebieten, angefangen vom Recht der internationalen Verantwortung uber das Recht des bewaffneten Konflikts, das Recht der Katastrophenhilfe, das internationale Strafrecht, das internationale Umweltrecht, das Konsularrecht und das Recht des diplomatischen Schutzes, das internationale Arbeitsrecht, das Fluchtlingsrecht bis hin zum internationalen Investitionsschutzrecht gestutzt. Der neue Volkerrechtsstatus des Menschen wird mit dem Begriff des subjektiven internationalen Rechts auf den Punkt gebracht.

English summary: This 'liber amicorum' for Peter Schlosser contains contributions written by internationally well-known specialists in the field of international civil procedure and arbitration. The articles concentrate on controversial issues such as transborder cooperation, international jurisdiction, enforcement of foreign judgements and arbitral awards, especially in regard to European legislation and international conventions. They focus on very delicate subject matters such as neutrality of arbitrators, taking evidence abroad and the limits of national sovereignty. German description: Die hier gesammelten Beitrage sind zwei wesentlichen Arbeitsgebieten des Jubilars gewidmet, dem internationalen Verfahrensrecht und der Schiedsgerichtsbarkeit. Aus diesen Bereichen werden aktuelle und grundsatzliche Probleme von weltweit anerkannten Spezialisten diskutiert. Im Vordergrund stehen die Probleme grenzuberschreitender Sachverhalte bei der Rechtsdurchsetzung, sei es im Bereich der staatlichen Gerichtsbarkeit, sei es in der alternativen Streitbeilegung, insbesondere der internationalen Schiedsgerichtsbarkeit. Die Thematik gewinnt durch die Europaische Rechtsetzungskompetenz und Gesetzgebung neben den internationalen Konventionen, insbesondere den Bemuhungen der Haager Konferenz um einheitliche Regelungen fur transnationale Probleme, neue Dimensionen. Themen wie der neue Europaische Vollstreckungstitel uber unbestrittene Forderungen, die besonderen Probleme der Brussel II a-Verordnung, der Entwurf eines Haager Ubereinkommens uber die Gerichtsstandswahl stehen neben Grundsatzfragen wie Armut der Schiedspartei, Neutralitat des Schiedsrichters, Anerkennungsproblemen bei einer Scheidung nach judischem Recht und Fragen aus dem Bereich des europaisch-amerikanischen Justizkonflikts. Die Beitrage spiegeln die internationale Diskussion in aktuellen und sensiblen Bereichen des internationalen Verfahrensrechts im weitesten Sinne.
