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 January 2016. You can also sign up to our Case Alert Registration to receive a monthly email with the latest updates.

The updates are published by Practical Law Arbitration on the dates listed below. For further case updates from other jurisdictions and other arbitration-related publications, see uk.practicallaw.com.
