Newsletter 1/19: Foundations: Tips for founders and foundation boards

28.02.19

If, in addition to benefi tting family and friends, some of the assets of a person’s estate are intended for charitable purposes, foundations are often considered as possible recipients of these funds. It may, in some cases, also be necessary to transfer a proportion of the assets to a foundation or to set up a foundation while the person is still alive.

Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards in Swiss Insolvency Proceedings – lessons learnt from the decisions of the Swiss Federal Supreme Court in the Swissair case (in German)

31.12.18

Summary of the article in the ASA Bulletin, Volume 36, No. 4, 2018: When can a foreign arbitral award be enforced in Swiss insolvency proceedings against the insolvent defendant? This question arises because according to the pro-visions of the NYC, enforcement may be refused if the subject matter of the dispute is non-arbitrable. The arbitrability of insolvency-related claims is contentious under Swiss law and actions to contest a schedule of claims are portrayed as being non-arbitrable. In the Swissair case, the Supreme Court has now rendered various deci-sions dealing with the significance of foreign civil judgements for the assessment of claims and related schedules of claims proceedings in Swiss insolvency proceedings. The principles thereby developed can be applied to arbitration and lead to the identification of four different scenarios. These scenarios are discussed in the article.
