Arbitration in the DACH region – successfully resolving cross-border disputes


Together with DLA Piper, The Legal 500 are pleased to invite you to our upcoming webinar on 14 February 2023.

The DACH area is an economic powerhouse and global hub for inbound and outbound investment and international trade. Arbitration is a key method to settle any cross-border disputes that might arise.

Join our panel of experts as they provide an overview of the ins and outs of international arbitration in Germany, Austria and Switzerland and explain why DACH has become a worldwide hub for arbitration. Learn effective risk mitigation, early crisis management and (pre-)dispute strategy. How do you choose between arbitration or litigation, and between ad hoc or institutional arbitration? Which seat should you select for an arbitration between parties from DACH and other regions? What pitfalls are there when drafting dispute resolution clauses? How do you pick the right arbitrator(s)?

Based on real-world experience, our webinar will equip you with best practices and guide you through local particularities and cross-cultural aspects of arbitration in the DACH area, a neutral region with well-developed modern and arbitration-friendly legal systems for players from different parts of the world.

We encourage you to submit questions in advance to shape the discussion. Please email DLA Piper Event
