Who's Who Legal Arbitration: Lawyers

Dr Simon Gabriel specialises in international arbitration and has participated in more than 70 international arbitration proceedings. He is founder and owner of the Zurich-based arbitration boutique law firm Gabriel Arbitration and is thus entirely independent. He is also a lecturer in international arbitration at the University of Lucerne.

Simon is regularly appointed as arbitrator in proceedings governed by ICC Rules, Swiss Rules, Vienna Rules and DIS Rules. He is Swiss delegate in the ICC Arbitration and ADR Commission in Paris and endorsed on the following panels of arbitrators: ICC Switzerland, Austrian VIAC, Russian Arbitration Association and Asian Institute of Alternative Dispute Resolution.

Furthermore, Simon and his team have represented parties in arbitration proceedings under ICC Rules, Swiss Rules, Vienna Rules, DIS Rules, SCC Rules and ad hoc rules. In terms of amounts in dispute, Simon’s experience ranges from US$700,000 to US$120 million.

Simon is particularly experienced in disputes concerning joint ventures and consortia, distribution contracts, international sales contracts, licensing contracts and post-M&A issues.

Simon studied law at the universities of Berne and British Columbia, Vancouver. He graduated in 2002, passed the Swiss Bar exam in 2004 and is admitted to all Swiss courts. He also holds a PhD from the University of Lucerne and an LLM in advocacy from the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow. Before opening Gabriel Arbitration in 2012, he was a member of the dispute resolution group of a leading international law firm.

WWL says: Simon Gabriel is “a sharp and bright arbitrator and party representative” who is recognised for his “profound knowledge of the law”. One source says, “He is my number one choice in Switzerland.”
