Dispute resolution

Our construction litigation group works actively with dispute resolution and we are currently providing representation in some of Sweden’s largest construction disputes.

Our goal is for you, as a client, to always have the most cost-efficient and best solution in a dispute. We also guide you through the entire process, from the opening demand to settlement discussions and, if settlement is not possible, further to court or arbitration.

In our dispute resolution and dispute prevention work, we provide strategic advice regarding all conceivable issues that can arise during a construction process, for example, addition and alternations work, hindrances, and extensions of time. Foyen also has substantial experience serving in the various roles which customarily arise in a dispute – as legal counsel, arbitrators, and mediators.

Our litigation group is accustomed to working with different clients, such as CEOs, senior counsel, in-house counsel, project managers, construction managers, and other consultants.

In addition, because we focus specifically on the construction and real property industry, we have significant experience handling construction and consultancy disputes. This may involve disputes in projects associated with residential construction, claims for consultancy work performed, installation contracting work and infrastructure projects, and more.

Quite simply, at Foyen we have the understanding and ability required to immerse ourselves in the technical dimensions of these areas, which is crucial to the ability to address the legal issues correctly.
