Description

The Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce has become an important forum for international commercial arbitration, with parties from more than 30 countries, especially Western European countries and increasingly Russia, other Eastern European Countries, and China. The author offers practitioners several background chapters on commercial arbitration in Sweden and a detailed analysis of each section of the Swedish Arbitration Act (SAA). This is a ready-reference handbook analyzing Swedish arbitration- the SAA, the Rules, and cases-and also includes references and commentary with respect to international commercial arbitration in general. The author's intention is to help practitioners "in search of rapid guidance regarding the interpretation of a particular provision or who wish to solve a practical problem." "This Third Edition of Commercial Arbitration in Sweden provides us all with a valuable and up-to-date understanding of the Swedish system in operation, and a comprehensive commentary on the SCC Rules, both new and existing. World business has the means, through this work, to see why Sweden and Stockholm are good choices for their international arbitrations."- ? Phillip Capper, Head of International Arbitration, Lovells; Nash Professor of Engineering Law, King's College, University of London; former Chairman of the Faculty of Law, University of Oxfordshow more

Review quote

Reviews of previous editions: "The author has not only undertaken painstaking research into Swedish legal sources published in the English language but also tied Swedish legal and arbitration rules into the mainstream of other comparative legal materials. This book is an essential work of reference for non-Swedish practitioners and arbitrators in Swedish arbitrations." - Arbitration International"Madsen's book will not only help to promote an understanding of and appreciation for arbitration in Sweden but will also provide the international audience with new sources of arbitration law for analyzing issues and resolving problems that arise in arbitration regardless of the jurisdiction." --Patricia Shaughnessy, JD, LLM, JSD, Stockholms Universitet i Juridisk Tidskrift"[R]eadily available, comprehensive and up-to-date information is important if not necessary. This book serves this purpose. It gives a comprehensive and current account of arbitration law and practice in Sweden, including the rules and practice of the SCC."--Ulf Franke, Secretary general of the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm chamber of Commerce; President of the International federation of Commercial Institutions; former Secretary General of the International Council for Commercial Arbitration"There can be no doubt that the book will be a most useful tool for anyone involved in arbitration in Sweden." --Professor Michael Bogdan, University of Lund in Nordic Journal of International Law"Madsen has succeeded in giving a comprehensive and current account of arbitration law and practice in Sweden. Finn Madsen's book is an excellent work. It is of great assistance to commercial parties and legal practitioners, both inside and outside of Sweden, when dealing with the issues arising out of commercial arbitration in Sweden, and it is a welcome contribution to law libraries." --Bengt Ake Johnsson, White & Case, Stockholm International Arbitration Review"[W]ill therefore be useful for anyone who is called upon to render advice with respect to arbitration in Sweden."-- Hans Corell, Consultant, Mannheimer Swartling; Under-Secretary-General for Legal Affairs and the Legal Counsel of the United Nations"show more
