Meet the new members of the SCC Board

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.

Partner Gorrissen Federspiel
“I am proud to have been selected to serve on the SCC Board. I look forward to being able to support the SCC in this role, an institute that is an important dispute resolution alternative for both investment and commercial arbitration worldwide. Most recently, this is demonstrated by the SCC’s being at the vanguard of digitalization for the benefit of its users, through such initiatives as the SCC Platform.”

Mattias Rosengren (CV)
Partner Vinge
“It is an honor to be joining the SCC Board. The SCC Board fulfills an important role under the SCC Rules, and I look forward to working with my fellow board members in carrying out these tasks and assisting the SCC to continue to provide an outstanding service to its users.”

Swedish Focus in kluwerarbitration.com launched

Swedish Focus in kluwerarbitration.com launched

Kluwer and ICCA have launched a new concept on Kluwer Arbitration – ICCA Focus countries. First country to be highlighted in this initiative is Sweden. In Focus Sweden, SCC, ICCA and Kluwer have gathered a selection of relevant Swedish arbitration cases and court decisions relating to arbitration

We are pleased to announce the launch of the ICCA Focus: Sweden a new initiative collecting all materials on Sweden and Swedish cases published in ICCA’s Yearbook Commercial Arbitration and International Handbook on Commercial Arbitration. This initiative highlights Sweden as an important arbitration jurisdiction.

ICCA Focus: Sweden consists of 15 arbitral awards rendered between July 1992 and November 2019 under the auspices of the SCC, one ad hoc award with historic value from 1966 on the question of applicable law for the substance of the dispute and the choice of seat of the arbitration; 16 court decisions rendered by the Swedish courts between August 1979 and June 2018 on the application of the 1958 New York convention; and the National Report Sweden published in the International Handbook on Commercial Arbitration in 2020.

This is the first Focus section with a geographical theme launched in the Kluwer arbitration publication

– Sweden might be small measured by geography but what happens in Swedish arbitration matters for a large portion of practitioners worldwide. This is why we are so grateful for ICCA´s Focus on Sweden, says SCC Secretary General Annette Magnusson. We look forward to a continued collaboration which means that the Swedish section will be updated regularly with new materials.
