Liechtenstein Arbitration Association

The Liechtenstein Arbitration Association (LIS) is an association of Liechtensteinian and international lawyers that has the aim of promoting arbitration in Liechtenstein. The LIS cooperates with the Liechtenstein Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) to give market participants the opportunity to take advantage of fair and high-quality arbitration.

Arbitral Proceedings in Liechtenstein

Arbitration is a method of dispute resolution that can be agreed by the parties to the dispute before or after a dispute arises. By declaring an arbitration tribunal to have jurisdiction, they exclude state courts from the decision and thus opt out of state jurisdiction. This can generate several benefits.

As an internationally recognized financial centre for arbitration proceedings, Liechtenstein offers optimal conditions for making full use of the advantages of arbitration proceedings:

  • Arbitration proceedings are quick: there is no need to go through multiple levels of proceedings or referrals from higher courts

  • Technical expertise of the arbitrators: Arbitration tribunals can be staffed with proven experts who have the specialized knowledge and experience often required in complex international disputes.

  • Arbitration procedures allow more flexibility: Depending on the requirements of the parties in the arbitration agreement, the arbitral tribunal can meet at any convenient location, hear witnesses in person or via video conference and negotiate in any language imaginable.

  • Arbitration proceedings are confidential: The proceedings are not public and the awards are not published.

  • Arbitral awards are enforceable almost worldwide: Arbitral awards from an arbitral tribunal based in Liechtenstein can be enforced in all member states of the New York Convention, i.e., currently in 157 countries.

Liechtenstein as a arbitration location

As an arbitration forum for international legal disputes, Liechtenstein offers ideal conditions. Though located in the middle of the Alps, it is still easily accessible. From Zurich Airport you can get to Liechtenstein in around an hour, from Altenrhein Airport in just 20 minutes. It is also connected to the long-distance train network via the Buchs (CH) and Feldkirch (AT) train stations and is also easily accessible by car.

With the complete revision of the arbitration procedure in 2010, Liechtenstein aligned its arbitration law with the Model Law on International Commercial Arbitration («UNCITRAL Modellgesetz») and thus aligned itself with internationally recognized standards. The Supreme Court is the only competent authority that can set aside an arbitration award, which means that an appeal proceeding can be decided in a few months. The Liechtenstein Rules are particularly suitable for arbitration proceedings in corporations, foundations and trusts, in order to maintain maximum confidentiality.

Liechtenstein Rules

The Liechtenstein Rules are arbitration rules that were drawn up by the Liechtenstein Chamber of Commerce and Industry specifically for the implementation of confidential proceedings. They can be agreed for international as well as for national proceedings and for arbitration tribunals domiciled abroad as well as those domiciled domestically. With 32 articles, the Liechtenstein Rules are, in contrast to other arbitration rules, short, clear and easy to understand. The simplicity of the procedure is a key point of the Arbitration Rules. For example, there is a minimal obligation to publish and only one exchange of documents. This speeds up the process considerably.

The Liechtenstein Rules attach particular importance to confidentiality. All parties involved in the arbitration are bound to the strictest confidentiality. The arbitration rules also contain various procedural clauses, which ensure the greatest possible level of discretion in the conduct of the proceedings. Furthermore, care was taken to keep the procedural costs at a reasonable level relative to the amount in dispute. The Cost Schedule of the Liechtenstein Rules is based on that of the Swiss Rules, but the amounts are about 15% lower.

The Liechtenstein Rules are therefore particularly suitable for use in disputes relating to foundation and trust law. In general, the combination of many years of experience in Liechtenstein with so-called «private clients» and the special design of the Liechtenstein Rules offers ideal conditions for efficient arbitration proceedings in these areas.
