With the Arbitration Act of 2006 Austria consolidates its emerging role as a seat for arbitration proceedings affecting Central and Eastern Europe. Based to a significant extent on the UNCITRAL Model Law, which is fast becoming an international stan-dard, Austria s new law is applicable in any proceedings involving parties from any country.
Assembled with detailed commentary in footnotes by Christoph Liebscher, a leading Austrian arbitration specialist and a member of the committee that drafted the law, this definitive presentation of the Austrian Arbitration Act of 2006 provides all of the following:-
- text and notes in four languages English, Russian, French, and German so as many readers as possible can study the legislation in their own language;
- concise footnotes to nearly every article, offering easy-to-follow applications, examples, and clarifications; and
- a wealth of general information useful for non-specialists who must advise on the drafting of arbitration agreements.
This book will be of great practical value to arbitration practitioners, to international business people and their counsel, as well as to academics in arbitration and interna-tional trade law, especially in the context of Central and Eastern Europe.
