This year, the General Assembly of ICC Switzerland will have a specific focus on the important work of the ICC commissions. ICC Switzerland is a membership-based organization and a strong national representation is essential. Because our Swiss experts in the ICC Commissions are the backbone of our national committee, the meeting will be an occasion for members to have a clearer picture of the actual important topics. Each coordinator will present a specific issue discussed in “his” commission. This will be followed by an interactive discussion with the participants. This shall be a substantive exchange and enable at the same time a better understanding of the ICC Commissions as well as of the substance.

Lange kaum beachtet, nimmt die Debatte um die Juso-Spekulationsinitiative nun doch noch Fahrt auf. An der Podiumsdiskussion von ICC Switzerland im Zürcher Volkshaus haben die Kontrahenten engagiert um die möglichen Auswirkungen der Vorlage gestritten, die am 28. Februar zur Abstimmung kommt.

Je mehr Leute sich an der Preisfindung in einem Markt beteiligen, desto besser funktioniere dieser, ist Rolf Stahel überzeugt. Als Finanzchef der traditionsreichen Winterthurer Baumwollhandelsfirma Reinhart sieht er täglich den ausgleichenden Effekt, den Finanzinvestoren bewirken. Wenn frühmorgens die Spekulanten in den USA noch nicht wach sind, seien die Preise auf dem Weltmarkt viel instabiler.

Zurich, 24, September 2015

July 17, 2015 - Economic sanctions are increasingly interacting with international business. The lack of a consistent international sanction policy amongst States and international organisations creates a significant element of uncertainty in world trade. Transcending the conclusion and the performance of contract duties, international sanction regulations are increasingly disrupting international dispute resolution and, in particular, international arbitration. The extraterritorial aspect of some sanction regulations, the uncertainty of the legal characterization of foreign sanctions, the debate over the relevant connecting factor between an international arbitration and a particular sanction regulation and the dissonance between international arbitration institutions as to their policy in administering sanction-related proceedings are causing significant concern in international arbitration both to arbitrators and to the parties. While the issue is particularly acute in international commercial arbitration, it is becoming relevant in investment arbitration as well as result of the increasing number of unilateral sanction regulations.
