Efficient, cost effective and neutral dispute resolution means are key to enable companies to move forward quickly and focus on creating value for the future.
As part of our commitment to foster a strong economy, we provide flexible, multilingual and confidential dispute resolution services for domestic and international cases, under any applicable law, in Switzerland or abroad.
To facilitate and expedite dispute resolution, we recommend you use the Swiss Rules Model Clauses in all your contracts and refer your disputes to the Swiss Rules of International Arbitration and/or to the Swiss Rules of Mediation. Both set of rules can be used for contracts and disputes that either domestic or international.
Arbitration is a flexible, efficient, neutral and confidential method of dispute resolution resulting in a final legally binding and enforceable award rendered by one or three arbitrators after examination of the evidence available and application of the law. Here are the 12 main reasons why you should choose arbitration under the Swiss Rules.
Mediation is an alternative means of dispute resolution. Two or more parties ask a third person, the mediator, to help them find a solution to settle a dispute or to avoid future conflict. The mediator is neutral and independent from the parties. During the mediation, he facilitates the exchange of opinions and encourages the parties to look for mutually agreeable solutions.
