The opinion is extremely interesting and it has been the object of much comment lately. Our team has therefore made sure that an English version would be made available to the arbitration community on a priority basis and we are happy to put it online today.

The case has already been described in an article by Sebastian Perry in The Global Arbitration Review and our friends at Thouvenin also mentioned it in their recent issue. Both are attached for ease of reference.

This judgment could be characterized as the “sequel” to the Lazutina judgment that was rendered by the Swiss Federal Tribunal 15 years ago (ATF 129 III 445). It is also interesting for other factual – and not necessarily arbitration-related – reasons. It has already been commented in the Thouvenin newsletter, a copy of which is attached for ease of reference.
