5.3
Are there any provisions of law which deal with multi-party disputes?
 
Sweden
The Arbitration Act in principle contains no provisions on the subject of multi-party proceedings. The legislature considered it more appropriate to allow the parties agree on multi-party proceedings and the questions associated with such proceedings. In the absence of an agreement, a party generally cannot be forced into proceedings with more than two parties. The Stockholm Chamber of Commerce Rules include provisions regarding multi-party disputes.
