Michael Bösch is a specialist in commercial arbitration. He has acted as counsel and arbitrator in dozens of international and national arbitrations, both under institutional rules such as the ICC, LCIA and Swiss Rules, and also ad hoc. His cases involve a wide area of matters, in particular M&A transactions and shareholders’ agreements, but also agency and distribution, sale of goods and construction, including turn-key projects. Michael is frequently called on to speak at arbitration conventions and is the co-author of the firm’s Arbitration Newsletter Switzerland on selected decisions of the Swiss Federal Supreme Court relating to actions for annulment of arbitral awards. Through his corporate and commercial advisory work, Michael has developed a robust and profound understanding of various business sectors, enabling him to use this expertise in contentious matters for the benefit of his clients or the tribunal.

Since 2018, Who’s Who Legal: Arbitration has recognised Michael as a ‘Future Leader’ in the partner category. He is lauded by peers as ‘an excellent lawyer’ who is ‘intelligent, knowledgeable and responsive’ and further as ‘a sharp-thinking’ lawyer, who ‘epitomises the practitioner and arbitrator who gives succinct and no-nonsense advice and decisions’. His arbitration work is also recommended by The Legal 500 and Leaders League. Michael holds an LLM from Georgetown University Law Center, Washington, DC, and is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators.
