Seat of the Arbitral Tribunal in Liechtenstein LawSeat of the Arbitral Tribunal in Liechtenstein Law

This book is directed at parties, practitioners, and courts interested in arbitration, offering them a guideline on and in particular an overview of the effects of localising arbitration proceedings and laying down the seat of a court of arbitration.  The place where the seat of a court of arbitration has been determined to be is of crucial importance for carrying out the proceedings.  The ability of the parties to choose the seat of the court of arbitration at will – it may meet at any location, regardless of its seat – is a substantial advantage of arbitration proceedings as compared to proceedings in a court of law.  The Liechtenstein Code of Civil Procedure, which is discussed here, offers a conclusive and seamless set of rules for determining the seat of a court of arbitration, so that it is ensured that arbitration proceedings will be carried out under any circumstances.  The clause “Arbitration in Liechtenstein” is sufficiently specific as a result of its clear and simple jurisdiction rule, also in comparison with Switzerland and Austria.
