Launch of the Central and Eastern Europe volume of the CMS Expert Guide to International Arbitration


In June 2020, we launched the fifth edition of the CMS Expert Guide to International Arbitration, focusing initially on 12 jurisdictions in Western Europe.

We are now pleased to launch the second volume of the Guide, which covers 13 jurisdictions in Central and Eastern Europe. Arbitration practitioners from across the region have provided a detailed overview of the law and practice of arbitration in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Montenegro, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia and the Ukraine.

Despite arbitration having long been the preferred method for resolving international commercial disputes, certain key elements of arbitration law still vary across these and other jurisdictions.

This fifth edition of the Guide is the first to be entirely online and has been fully updated. It does not seek to provide an exhaustive academic analysis, but rather a comprehensive, practical and user-friendly insight into the legal frameworks for arbitration across the globe.

Further volumes will follow covering the Middle East and North Africa, South and South East Asia and the Pacific and the Americas.

We hope you find the Guide useful. Should you require more information or specific advice, whether in the jurisdictions covered here or beyond, please contact the authors identified in each chapter, or your usual CMS contact.
