How can we secure our global market access?

Chairman's Lunch with State Secretary Helene Budliger Artieda

The WTO is fighting with stagnation in recent years, failing to advance global trade agreements. Meanwhile, sanctions have led to the formation of trade blocks and existing barriers hamper international commerce. In an era of interconnected economies, fostering cooperation is essential to overcome these obstacles and promote economic prosperity. And still, Switzerland and the EU are struggling to solve the blockade of the bilateral agreements. What are the next steps in Swiss-EU relations? And what role can international an national business play in overcoming these hurdles? The insightful remarks of State Secretary Helene Budliger Artieda started a lively discussion on these important issues, her valuable expertise has been very much appreciated.

 

Thank you to all our Guests for the stimulating Discussion. A special thanks goes of course to the State Secretary Helen Budliger Artieda.

ICC Arbitration Conference

Damages in arbitration and their quantification

 

At our ICC Arbitration Conference in Geneva, we were pleased to speak about damages in arbitration proceedings and their quantification.

 

We were honoured to welcome Prof. Pierre Tercier, Honorary Chairman of the ICC International Court of Arbitration, who introduced the topic. The first panel was moderated by Carole Malinvaud and hosted by Zelda Hunter, Philippe Baertsch and Vanessa Liborio. The different concepts of damage under civil law and common law, liquidated damages and requirements of causality were profoundly analysed and vividly discussed.

 

The second panel was moderated by Anne Véronique Schlaepfer with enlightening presentations from an expert-, counsel and arbitrator-perspective by Thomas Voisin, Ryan Shalabi and Zachary Douglas. A spotlight was put on „assumptions“ in expert reports and the distinction between lawyers‘, experts‘ and arbitrators‘ duties when it comes to quantum issues.

 

The substantive part was followed by a cocktail reception which offered a perfect opportunity to discuss the topics in a more convivial way.

 

A very warm thank you to all participants and a special thanks goes to our sponsors Python, Schellenberg Wittmer and White & Case for their precious support!
