Switzerland (especially Geneva and Zurich) has traditionally been a preferred venue for arbitration, generally ranking among the top three countries as a place for ICC arbitrations. This also applies in disputes involving antitrust issues. For parties or counsel dealing with matters involving or relating to antitrust law or potential antitrust claims, Switzerland is a particularly interesting venue to consider.
Among the factors making Switzerland generally a top choice for arbitration are its arbitration-friendly legislation and courts and its political neutrality. Furthermore, Switzerland is not a member of the EU, and neither the Swiss courts nor arbitral tribunals are part of the EU court system, which means that there is no interference from EU courts.
