Historically, Switzerland has been a preferred center of international arbitration and Lenz & Staehelin has its solid part in that history. Over time, legal disputes and proceedings have become increasingly complex and require the highest level of expertise and sensitive handling. Our experience enables us to provide our clients with the support they need.
Lenz & Staehelin’s attorneys have been involved in several hundred international arbitrations, either as counsel for a party or sitting as arbitrators. Our arbitral practice is mainly focused on institutional arbitration and, in particular, arbitrations conducted under the rules of the International Chamber of Commerce, the Swiss Chambers’ Arbitration Institution, the London Court of International Arbitration and the Court of Arbitration for Sport. The firm is also regularly involved in UNCITRAL and ad hoc arbitrations.
In every case, we establish a tailor-made team prepared to provide the highest quality of work, with the utmost commitment and focus at every level. Our multilingual team is able to communicate with clients and conduct cases in English, French, German, Italian and Spanish. All our lawyers have qualifications from or practical experience in common law jurisdictions; moreover, our team includes attorneys qualified to practice in a number of foreign jurisdictions including the U.S. and Latin America.
