Philipp Strasser and Jan Philipp Meyer discuss Supreme Court Decision: No coverage under business interruption insurance for prohibition of access under COVID-19-MG

Philipp Strasser and Jan Philipp Meyer discuss a recently published decision of the Austrian Supreme Court in the legal journal ecolex, which has received much attention not only in Austria but also in neighbouring countries. In this decision, the Supreme Court had to assess possible coverage claims under a dread disease insurance policy or, more specifically, the question of whether such claims exist also for business restrictions based not on the Law on Epidemics (the “Epidemiegesetz”), but on a special law passed after the pandemic outbreak of COVID 19 (the “COVID-19-Maßnahmengesetz“). In this decision, the Supreme Court has now taken a position on numerous questions that were the subject of discussions in academia and have also been treated inconsistently by the Austrian courts.

Social responsibility: Vavrovsky Heine Marth advises Revolve Circular on global circular economy initiative

A resource efficient economy instead of a "take-make-waste" model. Conserving finite resources, avoiding waste – and recognizing that all waste is, in fact, a secondary raw material. This is what the circular economy is all about: it’s an umbrella term for a variety of models, all of which challenge an outdated linear economy. But what and how can governments, countries, municipalities, companies and consumers contribute? How do scientists, policy-makers, managers, law-makers and others perceive the increasingly popular paradigm? Which action imperatives of a circular economy do different stakeholders consider to be part of it, and what is their respective circular vision?

In the first-ever global survey on the perceptions of circularity, Revolve Circular, an Austrian non-profit organization, and the Copernicus Institute of Sustainable Development at Utrecht University seek to analyze how different stakeholders perceive the circular economy and their role in it.

We are particularly proud to support this pioneering, important initiative pro bono, thereby making our contribution to taking one further step towards a resource-efficient and innovative economy.

Anne-Karin Grill On Cultural Considerations In Mediation At CILS Symposium In Salzburg

Biases bear the potential of derailing mediation processes and can spoil their success altogether. Recognizing and eliminating these biases, especially when they occur in a cross-border context, is therefore paramount. The 3rd Biennial Mediation Symposium hosted by the Center for International Legal Studies (CILS) covered a diverse range of mediation topics. One panel was exclusively dedicated to the issue of cultural considerations in mediation. Together with other leading ADR practitioners, Vavrovsky Heine Marth partner Anne-Karin Grill addressed how cultural dimensions are increasingly relevant to dispute resolution and set out how they can be built into the process already at a very early stage, i.e. during case analysis and strategic planning. Rejecting the notion of "one size fits all", the process must be designed to fit the cultural common sense of the parties. This will result in higher levels of commitment and procedural satisfaction. In a world where cultural evolution is driven by technological and financial integration, dealing with people and their disputes is not a linear process. The legal profession must adapt and incorporate cultural considerations in the facilitation of disputes. The CILS is a non-profit law research, training, and teaching institute, established and operating as a public interest society under Austrian law. Its international headquarters have been in Salzburg, Austria since 1976. Its essential purpose is to promote and disseminate knowledge among members of the international legal community.

Anne-Karin Grill On Integrating The Use Of Mediation In The Framework Of Arbitration

Both arbitration and mediation are long-standing methods of commercial dispute resolution. The concept of combining them in one hybrid process is not a new one. Yet, the two methods are still widely viewed as competing rather than synergistic. Still, combined proceedings offer numerous advantages and international institutions already recognise and support the use of mediation as a precursor to arbitration (Med-Arb) or during the arbitral process (Arb-Med-Arb). In the current edition of the Newsletter published by the Arbitration Committee of the International Bar Association (IBA), Anne-Karin analyses how the combination of both arbitration and mediation holds the promise of lifting the field of dispute resolution to new heights.  

‘Integrating the use of mediation in the framework of arbitration’ first appeared on the website of the Arbitration Committee of the Legal Practice Division of the International Bar Association, and is reproduced by kind permission of the International Bar Association, London, UK. © International Bar Association.

Higher Regional Court Vienna Decides Again Against UBER

Alrady in July 2018, the Vavrovsky Heine Marth Controversy Team led by Dieter Heine could successfully fight the issuance of a preliminary injunction filed by UBER. The request aimed to prevent testing activities and legal enforcement against UBER.

The Higher Regional Court Vienna has now affirmed this decision. The Court considered the possibility of the UBER system being used in an illegal manner as being proven. The Higher Regional Court has not permitted the appeal to the Supreme Court because of the unambiguousness of the law. UBER could only lodge an extraordinary appeal.
