Tadeusz Szurski 1923-2010

ICCA marks with great regret the loss of Advisory Member, Advocate Dr. Habil. Tadeusz Szurski, who died after a long illness on 16 February 2010 at the age of eighty-six. Tadeusz Szurski was regarded as a founding father of modern Polish arbitration. In a career that spanned several decades as a scholar and arbitrator, he was a co-founder and Vice-President of the Polish Arbitration Association and a founder and long-time President of the Court of Arbitration of the Polish Chamber of Commerce. He was also a member of the Scientific Council of the Institute of International Law at Warsaw University and an Honorary President of the Court of Arbitration at the Polish Confederation of Private Employers.

As eloquently noted by the Polish Arbitration Association in a February 2010 tribute, he will be remembered as a "man of great charm, courage and integrity."
