Which forum is best suited for the resolution of international disputes? Arbitration or the commercial courts that have recently sprung up? Arbitration is too expensive, judges at ordinary courts lack the necessary expertise - these are common prejudices. In addition, various commercial court projects are competing with each other in Germany. The most ambitious project is probably the Commercial Court Stuttgart/Mannheim. Will it stand up to international competition with Amsterdam, Dubai, London, Paris and Singapore? Dr. Patrick Melin and arbitration law expert Dr. Markus Burianski discuss this in a "Fireside Chat Round".
