Arbitration has been a core business of DORDA for decades. We even shaped amendments to Austrian arbitration law, which introduced the Austrian Supreme CourtꞋs exclusive, single-level jurisdiction in arbitration-related matters.

Our experts accompany national and international companies, authorities and governments as well as private individuals in all aspects of arbitration. You will benefit from our broad experience – from acting as your counsel to acting as arbitrators in arbitration proceedings. We also work together closely with other specialist departments in our firm to offer high-quality advice in all legal areas of disputes.


  • Careful drafting of arbitration clauses, including the selection of suitable arbitration institution and arbitrators

  • Representation of parties in arbitration proceedings
