This very useful book arms litigation and arbitration practitioners and in-house counsel with a detailed description of the Austrian procedural law governing proceedings before both Austrian domestic courts and arbitral tribunals seated in Austria. Divided equally between arbitration and litigation, with a concluding chapter on the role of relevant international conventions and treaties, the book provides a practical approach to users of the Austrian law on dispute resolution. While it includes detailed references and examples of the jurisprudence of Austrian courts and the opinions of Austrian academics, its great value lies in the straightforward answers it provides foreign lawyers to questions that arise during proceedings in Austria. Issues and topics covered include the following:
  • the rules governing arbitration agreements and arbitrability;
  • the taking of evidence in arbitration;
  • interim measures;
  • costs;
  • recognition and enforcement of arbitral awards;
  • court structure and jurisdiction of Austrian courts;
  • the evidentiary proceedings before Austrian courts; and
  • European Civil Procedure.
This is the first detailed English-language portrayal of the Austrian legal situation à propos dispute resolution. It allows practitioners to quickly grasp an overview of the Austrian practice in both arbitration and litigation while simultaneously ensuring the required depth to fully understand the legal background of this practice.
