A strong year

2013 was a strong year for the SCC. With 203 cases registered, this was a considerable increase from the previous years and illustrates that the SCC continues to be a preferred forum for dispute resolution. Of these 203 cases, 58% (117 cases) involved Swedish parties only and 42% (86) were international disputes, that is, disputes in which at least one of the parties is non-Swedish.
