Standards of Judicial Review in the Arbitration Context: The Austrian and Slovak Approaches Compared

On Tuesday, 19 September, the event organized by the Slovak Bar Association and Vienna International Arbitral Centre of the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber (VIAC) entitled „Standards of judicial review in the arbitration context: the Austrian and Slovak approaches compared“ took place in Bratislava.

We would like to thank our distinguish panelists for their valuable contributions:

  • Andrea Moravčíková, Vice President of the Slovak Supreme Court (Najvyšší súd Slovenskej republiky),
  • Erich Schwarzenbacher, Judge at the Austrian Supreme Court and VIAC Board Member,
  • Nikolaus Pitkowitz, VIAC President,
  • Lucia Raimanova, VIAC and ArbCEE Board Member and partner at Allen&Overy
  • Ľudovít Mičinský, Slovak Bar Association Board Member and VIAC Ambassador for Slovakia

We also extend our appreciation to the 90+ participants who filled the premises of the Slovak Bar Association.

Austria and Slovakia have high-quality laws on arbitration and reputable platforms for fair and effective arbitration. On top of that, our conference once again reaffirmed the indispensable role of a modern judicial review system, allowing for the growth of fair arbitration. This is a good news for clients and legal practitioners in the CEE seeking professional, effective, and fair commercial dispute resolution.
