Since publication of the first edition in 2004 this book has been widely used as an authoritative practitioners' guide to international arbitration in Switzerland, one of the leading centres for international arbitration proceedings.
This second edition describes in detail each phase of arbitral proceedings, from drafting the arbitration clause to challenge and enforcement of the award. It continues to pay close attention to all aspects, including procedure before the arbitral tribunal, interim measures, confidentiality, the mediation alternative, and many other topics, and has been extensively revised to fully take in to account the newly amended Swiss Rules of International Arbitration, as well as numerous changes internationally, such as the revised ICC Rules and the revised UNCITRAL Rules.

The second edition also features a chart comparing major institutional arbitration rules on all aspects of the arbitral process covered by those rules.
