5.3
Are there any provisions of law which deal with multi-party disputes?
 
Czech Republic
The Arbitration Act does not regulate multi-party arbitration.

The Arbitration Act provides that an arbitration agreement shall also bind the parties’ legal successors, unless the parties have explicitly excluded this. Therefore, third parties may not participate in arbitration without the consent of the parties.

The Rules of the Czech Arbitration Court contain several provisions on multi-party disputes; any party with a legal interest in the result of the proceedings may participate in the proceedings as an intervening party.
