Litigation and arbitration

We represent our domestic and foreign clients in both civil court and arbitral proceedings. Therefore, we benefit from long years of experience in the field of international private and proceedure law. In complex international litigations we closely cooperate with our foreign correspondents.

Our litigation activities encompass legal representation in domestic and international commercial and civil litigations before the courts of first instance (i.e. District Courts, Labour Law Courts, Leasing Law Courts and Commercial Courts) as well as before the courts of second and third instance (i.e. Superior Courts, Swiss Federal Court). In addition, we represent our internationally active clients in arbitration proceedings (i.e. ad hoc arbitral courts, International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), Swiss Chamber’s Arbitration, FIDIC, UNCITRAL).

Our services also include legal counselling related to conflict resolution clauses in contracts, drafting of legal opinions, advising on the law and the practice of international commercial arbitration as well as recognition and enforcement of foreign court rulings and arbitral awards.
