The present work analyses the reimbursement for attorneys fees with regard to the applicable national laws of Switzerland, Germany, France, England and the United States of America, and with regard to the international arbitration rules and the CISG. The author focuses on the allocation of attorneys fees in contract and tort cases and business law.
The book is divided into three parts dealing with civil procedure rules, international arbitration, and national substantive laws. The author detects contradictions in the rules and principles and argues persuasively for the creation of a general fee-shifting rule. This new volume in our series International Commerce and Arbitration with its broad and unique coverage of multiple topics within the field render the book an indispensable guide for those interested in arbitration and litigation.
