The case does not relate to an appeal against an arbitral award stricto sensu. It is actually a New York Convention case, and as there are not many in Swiss practice, we thought it was worth making it available to our readers.

This decision dated July 2, 2012 concerns the New York Convention. As you will see, the case did not involve an appeal against an international arbitral award stricto sensu but rather an appeal against a judgment of the Cantonal Court of Schwyz, which had confirmed a decision of the District Court of Höfe as to the enforcement of an international award in Switzerland.

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.
