Attorney and locations for arbitration procedures in St. Gallen
Teichmann International (Schweiz) AG is convinced that it is in the interest of all parties to settle trade disputes efficiently, quickly, and appropriately. Hence, we place great value on the conduction of arbitration procedures, in which we function as party representatives or arbitration court. Through arbitration procedures, disputes can be settled outside of court. In addition, arbitration procedures often are less time consuming and are not subject to governmental conditions that apply to proceedings while being practice-oriented and legally binding. Arbitration proceedings can be combined with mediations and arbitration procedures through which finding an amicable settlement is facilitated. In addition, international treaties facilitate the enforcement of arbitration awards, which is why arbitration procedures are particularly helpful in international matters. Moreover, arbitration procedures offer a high degree of confidentiality whereas court decisions are always declared publicly. If needed, our attorneys in St. Gallen are prepared to move arbitration awards to the Federal Supreme Court of Switzerland as legal representatives.

In particular, we provide representative rooms in our prime location at Rosenberg St. Gallen for the execution of arbitration procedures. However, we can also organize and conduct arbitration procedures in other locations.

In this, the protection of our clients’ interests always is our main concern. Reaching an amicable solution is one of our main goals, as well.
Arbitration procedures in our law firm in St. Gallen are based on the rules of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) which is the largest company organization in the world and represents more than 45 million businesses in over 100 countries. The ICC encourages international trade, responsible business continuation and a global approach to regulation. When two parties enter a contract, a treaty, or a separate arbitration agreement, they can agree to using the ICC procedural rules so that a potential dispute can be avoided. The ISS is one of the leading international arbitration institutions.
