Dispute resolution

By carefully thinking a transaction through, identifying potential future complications and risks and preparing contracts that govern all material elements, it is possible to considerably reduce the risks of future problems between you and your opposite party. We deal with situations like this every day. However, all business transactions, partnerships and operations entail a latent risk of misunderstandings or disagreements that may develop into conflicts and disputes.

Legal proceedings may often be protracted and expensive. Consequently, it is important to carefully analyse all opportunities and risks before initiating proceedings. We always strive to provide clear, carefully considered advice to our clients on the prospects of future proceedings. There may well be a constructive way of resolving the dispute via a settlement that allows both parties to win. However, if a dispute is considered to be the best way forwards, we will conduct it with all our energy, drawing on our shared knowledge and experience.

Several of our employees have a solid background in dispute resolution, i.e. proceedings in public courts and in arbitration proceedings. We are often engaged as counsel in disputes between companies in different sectors. The firm’s employees who work in this speciality also have experience of representing clients in Swedish courts. And we regularly act as arbitrators.

We regularly assist our clients with the following:

  • Counsel in commercial and other types of litigation at district courts and higher courts
  • Counsel in commercial arbitration disputes
  • Analysis and advice before and during disputes
  • Mediation in commercial disputes
  • Acting as arbitrators
  • Redemption disputes (redemption of minority shares in limited companies)
