Over the past decades, Sweden has gained a reputation as a preferred arbitration seat in the East-West context. Sweden is also recognized globally for its neutrality, transparency and consistent adherence to the rule of law.

The modernized Arbitration Act provides for the mechanisms facilitating the arbitral procedure for Swedish and, particularly, for foreign parties. Among the news are the provisions on the applicable law, appointment if arbitrators in multi-party disputes, the order for challenging arbitrators’ jurisdiction, new time limits for challenging arbitral awards, use of English in set-aside proceedings.
The panelists will discuss what these and other amendments mean for a foreign counsel or in-house lawyer, arbitrating a dispute in Sweden.
