New Edition of International Arbitration in Sweden - A Practitioners Guide

Jurisdictional challenges, SCC rules and procedures, multiparty arbitrations and investor-state arbitration in Sweden. These are some of the elements of practice addressed in the newly released book International Arbitration in Sweden – A Practitioners guide, where sixteen experienced practitioners provide a guide to international arbitration in Sweden.

Sweden is one of a handful of countries where the international arbitral process has reached a stage where the jurisprudence is replete with instances involving no local parties at all. In this context of credible neutrality, the SCC has emerged as a leading global arbitral institution. Whether the matter at issue is a business transaction dispute or a politicized conflict involving obdurate parties, the richness of its body of decided cases manifests the SCC’s authority and reliability throughout the converging world of international arbitration.

The new edition of the book is written by sixteen experienced practitioners and edited by SCC Secretary General Annette Magnusson, Jakob Ragnwaldh, partner, Mannheimer Swartling (Singapore) and Martin Wallin, partner, Wallin & Partners (Stockholm). This publication provides a highly relevant and practical guide to international arbitration in Sweden, whether ad hoc or institutional.

Among the many elements of practice and procedure detailed are the following:

• appointment, challenge, removal, and compensation of arbitrators;

• procedural efficiency and costs;

• use of international legal sources such as IBA guidelines;

• choice of law by parties;

• SCC rules and procedures;

• multiparty arbitrations – joinder, intervention, consolidation;

• investment treaty arbitration;

• confidentiality;

• documentary evidence, witnesses, and experts;

• grounds for setting aside;

• party succession;

• Swedish court review of the arbitrator’s jurisdiction; and

• appeal of arbitrators’ compensation.

This is a thorough guide for disputing parties wishing to know what will happen when their case is brought to Sweden for arbitration.
