Standard form contract available online constitutes valid prorogation of jurisdiction. On July 1 2013 the Federal Supreme Court(1) clarified that the Lugano Convention 2007 (on jurisdiction and the recognition and enforcement of judgments in civil and commercial matters) offers the possibility to choose Switzerland as a neutral jurisdiction for companies domiciled in any of its member states (EU member states, Norway, Iceland and Switzerland), even if the companies are not domiciled in Switzerland.
