This highly-regarded text is now available to a wider audience with the publication of the third edition in English. The work comprises a detailed review of Chapter 12 of the Swiss Private International Law Act, which governs international arbitration in Switzerland, discussing arbitral and institutional practice under the ICC Rules, the Swiss Rules of International Arbitration, and the Code of Sport-related Arbitration (CAS Code), as well as making reference to the UNCITRAL Rules. Part III of the Swiss Federal Code of Civil Procedure came into force in January 2011 and is referenced where applicable. The book covers all essential aspects of international arbitral proceedings and arbitration-led court proceedings in Switzerland, from the drafting and validity of arbitration agreements to the challenge, enforcement, and recognition of arbitral awards. Comparative analysis and transnational perspectives enhances the practical and systematic advice at the centre of the work.

The book is co-authored by Gabrielle Kaufmann-Kohler and Antonio Rigozzi, both leading experts in the field of international arbitration. Kaufmann-Kohler in particular is regarded as a world leader in this field, being regularly ranked in the world's top ten international arbitrators and most recently as the 'most highly-regarded' arbitrator in the world by The International Who's Who of Commercial Arbitration. The authors' combined expertise in international commercial, investment, and sports arbitration makes this book an essential resource for anyone involved with international arbitration in Switzerland.
