Daniel HOCHSTRASSER is the Senior Partner and heads the arbitration group of Bär & Karrer AG. He graduated from the University of Zurich Law School in 1986. He spent one year in the legal department of an industrial company in France and two years at a Zurich District Court, and served three years with the Zurich Court of Appeals and the Zurich Court of Cassation (Supreme Court). After one year in the US (Cornell Law School, LL.M., 1993), he joined Bär & Karrer. In his practice, Hochstrasser concentrates on commercial litigation and international arbitration. His primary focus is on representing parties in complex disputes arising out of M&A transactions, industrial and infrastructure projects, banking and finance, and licence agreements. In addition to representing parties, Hochstrasser is frequently chosen as party-appointed arbitrator and chairman of international arbitrations, most of them under the Rules of the ICC or the Swiss Rules, but also other institutions or ad hoc arbitrations. He is frequently lecturing on arbitration in Switzerland and abroad.
