News A New Edition of Commercial Arbitration in Sweden

March 03, 2016

Finn Madsen's book Commercial Arbitration in Sweden, which is a commentary on the Swedish Arbitration Act and the Arbitration Rules of the Arbitration Institute at the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce, is now being published in a new and fourth edition in English.

Finn Madsen, who is a partner at Vinge Law firm comments:

- The law and practice of arbitration in Sweden  has developed considerably during the nine years which have passed since the third edition of the book was published. This has required considerable amendments to be made to the book. Among other things, an introductory section on Swedish arbitration law has been taken out and the book is now in its entirety in the form of a commentary. The content has been expanded and the book now includes 600 pages where developments up to 1st of January 2016 have been taken into account.

Annette Magnusson, Secretary General of the Arbitration Institute, has written a foreword to the book. In the book´s preface Finn expresses his gratitude to the valuable contributions to the book by his Vinge co-workers Graham Plutz and Lena Tegnér.

Previously, the book has been published in two editions in Swedish and one in Mandarin. A new Swedish edition is planned to be published during 2017.
