Dispute Resolution

When you need assistance or expert advice in international arbitration or complex court cases, our Dispute Resolution team is at your service. One of our key strengths is our ability to utilize the broad and deep knowledge within our firm in a number of specific areas, such as energy, infrastructure, competition, M&A, insolvency and ICT.

As one of the leading dispute resolution practices in the Nordics, we represent leading companies in domestic and international litigation and arbitration, frequently managing disputes and advising on a wide range of high-profile white collar crime cases and related civil claims. Other important areas of our expertise include strategic advice and legal risk and liability management.

We can help you prevent, contain and settle disputes whenever this is in your best interest. We take a particular interest in the development of cost-efficient dispute resolution mechanisms, such as various forms of ADR, and regularly serve as arbitrators and mediators in both international and domestic disputes. We are also actively involved in academic writing, teaching and lawmaking.

Great to work with, highly responsive, open to discussion and innovation. A high-calibre team who can deal with the most complex and high-value matters. The Legal 500, Dispute Resolution

As a firm, Roschier is active in developing and analyzing the field of dispute resolution. For example, we publish the Roschier Disputes Index, which is the first market survey of its kind in the Nordics. The latest edition was published in April 2018 and provides insight into the mindsets of the largest Nordic companies as to their approach to disputes.

We also organize the Roschier Arbitration Forum, an annual event that brings together practitioners, academics and end-users of arbitration and is an established event in the Nordic arbitration calendar.

Roschier Disputes Index is our biennial market survey focusing on prevailing practices and trends in dispute resolution in the Nordics.

The Roschier Disputes Index 2018 is the fifth edition of our survey. Our objectives are to investigate and track developments in how the largest companies in the Nordic region view commercial dispute resolution and manage their disputes.
