Vienna Perspective - 2024

The following article presents a commentary on recent arbitration-related decisions by the Austrian Supreme Court.

The focus of this commentary lies on a decision dealing with the setting aside of an arbitral award based on a violation of the right to be heard because a party’s request for an oral hearing had been dismissed. We analyze the previous case law by the Austrian Supreme Court and explain how the Court’s understanding of the necessity of oral hearings has developed since the entry into force of the Arbitration Reform Act 2006.
