Roschier's Dispute Resolution team is one of the leading dispute resolution practices in the Nordics. The team focuses on the major commercial disputes in the region, specializing in international arbitration and complex court disputes.
“It is very impressive how the team handles cases, especially huge, complex cases; the work and level of service are impressive.”
– Chambers Europe (Dispute Resolution)
In addition to representing leading companies in domestic and international litigation and arbitration, the team frequently advises on a wide range of high-profile white collar crime cases and related civil claims. Other important aspects of the practice include strategic advice, preventive risk counseling, and legal risk and liability management.
Our lawyers strive to prevent, contain and settle disputes whenever this is in the client's best interest. We take a particular interest in the development of cost-efficient dispute resolution mechanisms, such as various forms of ADR, and our lawyers regularly serve as arbitrators in both international and domestic arbitrations. We are also actively involved in academic writing, teaching and lawmaking.
The team has extensive experience in managing disputes both locally in the Nordics and internationally. One of the unique features of Roschier’s Dispute Resolution practice is the close cooperation between the Stockholm and Helsinki offices, allowing us to draw on the cross-border resources of both offices for large international mandates.
When acting in contentious matters, we want to ensure our clients receive the best legal advice wherever the need arises. We therefore work closely with Roschier specialists in other practice areas, and draw on our international network, which includes law firms across the globe.
A key strength of the team is its in-depth knowledge of disputes relating to specialist areas such as:
- Administrative and regulatory law
- Agency and distribution
- Banking and financial services
- Directors' liability
- Competition law
- Projects and Construction
- Corporate law
- Corporate compliance (including internal and regulatory investigations)
- IPR litigation
- IT projects
- Product liability
- Professional negligence
- Public international law and protection of foreign investment
- Securities law
- Technology, media and telecommunications
Roschier is also active in developing and analyzing the field of dispute resolution. For example, the firm publishes the Roschier Disputes Index, which is the first survey of its kind in the Nordics. The latest edition was published in 2016 and provides an insight into the mindsets of the largest Nordic companies with respect to their approach to disputes.
The Roschier Arbitration Forum, which brings together practitioners, academics and end users of arbitration each spring, has also become an established part of the arbitration calendar in Stockholm.
