On June 3, 2020, the Board of the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA) confirmed the appointment of Homburger partner Gabrielle Nater-Bass as a new member of the LCIA Court.
The LCIA remains one of the largest international arbitration institutions today. The LCIA Court is made up of up to thirty five members, plus representatives of associated institutions, selected to provide and maintain a balance of leading practitioners in commercial arbitration, from the major trading areas of the world. The LCIA Court is the final authority for the proper application of the LCIA Rules. Its principal functions are appointing tribunals, determining challenges to arbitrators, and controlling costs.
Gabrielle Nater-Bass is a partner in Homburger's Litigation and Arbitration practice team and has acted as counsel and arbitrator in a vast number of cases. Moreover, she advises clients in complex cross-border disputes before state courts.
Gabrielle Nater-Bass is currently President of the Arbitration Court of the Swiss Chambers' Arbitration Institution (SCAI), board member of the Swiss Arbitration Association (ASA) and co-chair of the ICCA-ASIL Task Force on Damages in International Arbitration. She received the Client Choice Award this year in the category Arbitration & ADR (Switzerland).

On April 23, 2020, Homburger won the IFLR Europe award for Swiss Firm of the Year. The award honors Homburger's involvement in some of the most demanding and innovative finance, capital market and M&A transactions. Homburger received the award for the twelfth time.
In addition to winning this award, Homburger was also shortlisted in the following categories: Debt and equity-linked Deal of the Year (Cembra Money Bank), Debt and equity-linked Deal of the Year (Credit Suisse bail-inable SOFR notes), M&A Deal of the Year (DSV / Panalpina Group) and Debt and equity-linked Team of the Year.

Following a thorough evaluation of the available tools and successful pilots, we have adopted Kira (www.kirasystems.com), the market leading artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning software for contract and legal documents analysis. The adoption of Kira is part of our firm's ongoing commitment to digital innovation and the use of legal tech in our client offering.
Kira can be used to identify information and clauses in any legal document in M&A (including due diligence), regulatory, compliance and litigation matters. We expect that the use of Kira will reduce the time spent on manual reviews of legal documents significantly and also allow the review of a larger amount of documents more efficiently. It also increases the quality and consistency of any large volume document review.
David Oser, partner in the Corporate | M&A and Capital Markets teams, said: "Kira is an important addition to our existing service platform. We have been leveraging e-discovery tools in our investigation practice for quite a while, and we are confident that we will be similarly able to use Kira in a way that brings significant value to our client."
Andreas Müller, partner in the Corporate | M&A and Capital Markets teams and head of the Kira project team, adds: "Over the past months, our lawyers have trained Kira also on the relevant contract clauses in German and French. This allows us to conduct contract analyses in the most common languages in our practices."
