In a German-language decision dated 9 December 2011 and published on 22 December 2011, the Swiss Supreme Court considered an agreement to waive setting-aside proceedings pursuant to Article 192 PILA where one party to the agreement had died and its successor-in-interest claimed not to be bound by the arbitration agreement. Despite the waiver clause, which it found valid, the Swiss Supreme Court first engaged in an inquiry whether the successor-in-interest was bound by the arbitration clause.
