competence-competence and the autonomy of the arbitration agreement,
the arbitral tribunal,
the arbitral procedure,

setting aside proceedings against the award
and the enforcement of arbitral awards, including the recognition and enforcement of foreign arbitral awards.

At the same time, it is an invaluable and user-friendly source of information and reference for arbitration practitioners in Switzerland and abroad.
