Assignment and Arbitration : A Comparative Study
This study focuses on the consequences for arbitration agreements of an assignment of rights. The potential application of the arbitration agreement between the assignee and the debtor is thoroughly analyzed at a comparative law level (Austria, Belgium, England, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United States). This contribution not only helps to properly understand assignment issues situated at the crossroads between substantive and procedural law, but it also develops appropriate solutions, i.e., both commercially and legally viable. Even before publication, the author, an attorney-at-law and a scholar in the field of international arbitration, was awarded the Alfred E. von Overbeck Prize by the Swiss Institute of Comparative Law (ISDC) in March 2008 for the high quality of the manuscript of this study.
