2022 Arbitration Year in Review: Switzerland

In 2022, the Swiss Federal Supreme Court rendered very interesting decisions in the field of arbitration. Part I of Dr. Petra Rihar’s post on Kluwer Arbitration Blog focuses on the topic of arbitrator’s independence and impartiality as well as on enforcement of arbitral awards in Switzerland. Part II focuses on decisions providing useful guidance on the remedy of revision (as in force since January 2021) and on the concept of “treaty shopping”. Part II also briefly summarizes the main developments in Swiss legislation and arbitration rules (Supplemental Swiss Rules and CAS Code). A pdf-copy of the post can be found here and the digital version, including overviews of developments in earlier years, can be found here.
