Dispute Resolution

Our dispute resolution team represents clients in all types of
contentious matters, before courts, arbitral tribunals and other
dispute resolution venues.

Arbitration

We have a strong focus on international arbitration, both commercial and investor-state. Our dispute resolution partners are frequently appointed as arbitrators. This unique experience enhances their work as counsel.

As counsel, we regularly represent clients in proceedings before arbitral tribunals as well as before emergency arbitrators. We also often defend our clients’ rights before local courts in ancillary proceedings dealing with jurisdictional issues, document production, and taking sworn testimony from witnesses.

As a team, we have unrivaled experience in representing companies and governments before the local courts in actions to set aside awards.

Recent work highlights include successful representation of the Russian Federation, the Republic of Turkey and some of the major Russian, Chinese and Swedish corporations during arbitration proceedings or in annulment and set-aside proceedings.

Litigation

We represent clients in all types of commercial disputes including international trade, oil and gas, construction and infrastructure projects, post M&A and other corporate disputes, IT and telecom, public procurement, regulatory, compliance, EU and competition law. We regularly act as counsel in courts of general jurisdiction and administrative courts. We have experience in appearing before the Supreme Court.

Our advice encompasses not only legal aspects of a dispute but also strategic considerations before a claim is made or proceedings initiated. We assist our clients on media-related issues related to the dispute.

Our practice is highly international and we regularly act for companies and sovereign states from European Union, Russia and CIS, North America, Middle East and Asia.

Enforcement of rulings

We have considerable experience of the recognition and enforcement of arbitral awards rendered in Sweden as well as abroad, against companies and states. When applying for recognition of an arbitral award, we represent clients before the Court of Appeal. Enforcement proceedings are then initiated before the Swedish Enforcement Authority.

Enforcement of foreign judgments is another specialty of ours. We often encounter interesting questions on the intersection of international and domestic law.

Recent work highlights include successful recognition of an arbitral award rendered in Russia and an ongoing enforcement of an award worth USD 500 million against the Republic of Kazakhstan.
