Daniel Hochstrasser co-heads Bär & Karrer’s arbitration practice, concentrating on commercial litigation and international arbitration.

In addition, Daniel is frequently chosen as a party-appointed arbitrator and chairman of international arbitrations in Switzerland and other countries.

Since July 2015, he has been a member of the ICC Court of Arbitration, Paris.
