LALIVE’s ongoing involvement in the Swiss Arbitration Association (ASA) strengthened by two new Board appointments

8 October 2013

At the General Meeting held in Bern on 4 October 2013, the Swiss Arbitration Association (ASA) elected Domitille Baizeau, LALIVE international arbitration partner as a new member of its Board.  ASA’s outgoing President, LALIVE international arbitration partner Michael E. Schneider, was also re-elected on the Board.

Ms Baizeau and Mr Schneider’s election follow LALIVE’s long tradition of active involvement in ASA. Ms Baizeau was presented for election after several years of involvement in ASA, first as a co-chair of ASA Below 40 (2007-2010) and as a member of ASA’s marketing committee (since 2011). Michael E. Schneider has been a member of the Board for many years and its President for the last four years, period during which he contributed greatly to the modernisation of the association. The election of the ASA Board was reported in the Global Arbitration Review Briefing on 7 October 2013 and commented upon by several leading arbitration practitioners.

LALIVE’s commitment to ASA is also evidenced by the pivotal role played by other partners of the firm. Bernd Ehle is one of the current co-chairs the ASA Geneva Group, Matthias Scherer is the Editor in Chief of the ASA Bulletin (founded by Professor Pierre Lalive) and Noradèle Radjai one of the current co-chairs of ASA below 40.

ASA is one of the world’s leading associations and a significant contributor to the development of international arbitration law and practice. It has over 1’000 members, from Switzerland and abroad, regularly organises conferences and workshops, and publishes the ASA Bulletin, a renowned arbitration quarterly.  For more information on ASA and this election, see the ASA site.
