Meet the new members of the SCC Board
New year, new cases and challenges await at the SCC. We are very pleased to welcome three new members to our board, who will provide invaluable experience to the SCC mission.
In 2020, 213 new cases were registered at the SCC. This is the second highest case load for the SCC historically. Statistics from our colleagues at arbitration institutes around the world also indicate an increased inflow of cases. The continued rapid evolution of a globalized business community and the Covid-19 crisis are without doubt factors that have demonstrated the strength of the international arbitration system. We are proud to be a reliable and efficient dispute resolution body also in these unprecedented times - to continuously be available to resolve disputes in support of global trade and investment.
As of 1 January 2021, the SCC Board welcomes three new experienced and skilled arbitration specialists.
