Arbitration Case Digest


Schellenberg Wittmer helps you stay up to date with Swiss arbitration case law. The Swiss Federal Supreme Court renders some 40-50 decisions annually on petitions to set aside awards rendered by international arbitral tribunals seated in Switzerland. Members of the International Arbitration Practice Group of Schellenberg Wittmer prepare regular English-language updates summarizing and analyzing these decisions.

The case updates are available on this web page going back to mid-2009. You can also sign up to our Case Alert Registration to receive a monthly email with the latest updates.
