Daniel Hochstrasser heads Bär & Karrer’s arbitration practice, concentrating on commercial litigation and international arbitration. He primarily focuses on representing parties in complex disputes arising from M&A transactions, industrial and infrastructure projects, banking and finance, as well as license agreements, particularly in the pharmaceutical field.
In addition, Daniel Hochstrasser is frequently chosen as a party-appointed arbitrator and chairman of international arbitrations. While many of these proceedings are conducted under the ICC or Swiss Rules, his experience also extends to the rules of other institutions and ad hoc arbitrations. He has published and lectured on arbitration and litigation in Switzerland and abroad.
Litigation Law Practice:
Litigation has always been a cornerstone of our firm. Our litigation practice encompasses all types of corporate and commercial disputes and all related issues. We act in employment law litigation, disputes involving trusts and estates as well as all bankruptcy-related proceedings. In addition to ordinary civil proceedings, our forensic practice regularly involves pursuing enforcement action, seeking interlocutory remedies (attachments and other interim measures) as well as representing our clients in international legal assistance, and administrative proceedings.
We have extensive experience in advising clients on the Swiss ramifications of US litigation, including class actions.
We represent clients before all courts and administrative authorities in Switzerland. Our resources allow us to handle all kinds of disputes efficiently, from routine matters to large and complex multinational litigation
