10 December 2020 (13:00h) - Revision of the Swiss Private International Law Act on Arbitration – What’s new? What stays?

This webinar will focus on the recent revision of the Swiss International Arbitration Act (i.e. the 12th Chapter of the Swiss Private International Law Act) which will enter into force on 1st January 2021. While there are not many amendments to the current law, some of them are important for practitioners both within and outside Switzerland. A panel of three experienced arbitration experts will discuss the most relevant issues. Daniel Girsberger was involved in the draft revision as an expert advisor to the Swiss Federal Council which was in charge of drafting the legislation, and Philipp Habegger suggested important changes, among others as the then President of the Arbitration Court of SCAI. Alexandra Johnson will be the moderator. The succinct presentations will be followed by a Q&A session.
