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 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.

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.

There are chapters on seizure for security and enforcement of judgments, and a final section on alternative dispute resolution. Facts are presented in such a way that readers who are unfamiliar with specific terms and concepts in varying contexts will fully grasp their meaning and significance. Succinct, scholarly, and practical, this book will prove a valuable time-saving tool for business and legal professionals alike.
