2 July 2020 - EU and Arbitration: Quo Vadis?

Dear colleagues,

Following the announcement of the postponement of our last meeting, initially planned on March 24, 2020, we have the pleasure to inform you that it will take place by way of a webinar (videoconference via Zoom; a link will be sent at a later date) as follows:

Although international arbitration falls outside the scope of competence of the European Union, there are numerous contact points between the two regimes. The European legislation and the decisions of the Court of Justice of the European Union have direct consequences on arbitration, whether on commercial or investment arbitration, as illustrated by the Achmea Decision. In the context of Brexit, which sees the departure of one of the biggest arbitration centers from the EU, it seems important to assess the current and future relationship between the EU and arbitration.

The session will start with a brief summary of the recent highlights from the case law of the Swiss Federal Tribunal on international arbitration, which will be presented by Ms. Sabrine Schnyder, associate of the law firm Sidley.

The debate will be followed by a general discussion during which all participants will be able to share their past experiences and ask questions.

People interested by the webinar are kindly asked to register at the following link:

We are looking forward to seeing you soon.

Best regards,

                   Alexandra Johnson                   Jean Marguerat
