CMS Guide to Arbitration in Europe 2005

Download publication

Arbitration is one of the preferred methods for resolving international commercial disputes because of its ability to transcend the restrictions of national court systems and procedural law, as well as its flexibility, the confidentiality of the process and ease of enforcing arbitral awards. While much has been done to unify arbitration laws across Europe and beyond, law and practice from country to country does vary. 

The Guide is an excellent resource for arbitration practitioners, providing details of all the main arbitration institutions and associated organisations in those jurisdictions, as well as other useful arbitration resources.

This Second Edition covers the following jurisdictions, each of which has been updated to reflect developments since the First Edition. (Those in bold are new to the Second Edition.)

  • England and Wales
  • France
  • Germany
  • Hungary
  • Italy
  • Netherlands
  • Poland
  • Romania
  • Russia
  • Scotland
  • Spain

The Guide will be updated from time to time to reflect future substantial developments in arbitration practice in each jurisdiction.
