International Arbitration in Sweden, now in its second edition, is a compendious book penned by sixteen eminent practitioners that furnishes a practical guide to international arbitration in Sweden, whether ad hoc or institutional. Sweden is one of a handful of countries where the international arbitral process has reached a stage where the jurisprudence is replete with instances involving no local parties at all. In this context of credible neutrality, the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce (SCC) has emerged as a leading global arbitral institution. Whether the matter at issue is a business transaction dispute or a politicized conflict involving obdurate parties, the richness of its body of decided cases manifests the SCC’s authority and reliability throughout the converging world of international arbitration.

What’s in this book:

The book details the following elements of practice and procedure:

  • appointment, challenge, removal, and compensation of arbitrators
  • procedural efficiency and costs
  • use of international legal sources such as IBA guidelines
  • choice of law by parties
  • SCC rules and procedures
  • multiparty arbitrations – joinder, intervention, consolidation
  • investment treaty arbitration
  • confidentiality
  • documentary evidence, witnesses, and experts
  • grounds for setting aside
  • party succession
  • Swedish court review of the arbitrator’s jurisdiction, and
  • appeal of arbitrators’ compensation

How this will help you:

Disputing parties wishing to know the status of their case brought to Sweden for arbitration will find no clearer or more thorough guide. This book is an unparalleled source for an arbitrator or counsel, or in any other capacity, in international arbitration in Sweden. Furthermore, readers will be exposed to a trove of pertinent references to crucial decisions that have, in recent decades, been generated by the stream of major international arbitrations conducted in Sweden.
