Cederquist has highly regarded specialists within the area of dispute resolution. Our lawyers have extensive experience in litigation in Swedish courts and of national and international arbitration. We advise our clients on all manners of dispute, e.g.:

• Construction work
• Contract and tort liability
• EU/antitrust law
• Mergers & acquisitions
• Property law
• Product liability

We have extensive experience in obtaining injunctions and enforcements in support of foreign proceedings on disputes where foreign law is applicable. When required, our litigation teams include specialists from other practice areas. For most companies a dispute is a disturbing event. We focus on the client’s commercial interests and always try to put the dispute into a larger context in order to achieve the best possible outcome. Litigation or arbitration can often be avoided if distinct and coherent action is immediately taken when disagreement arises between two parties. Therefore, it is important to involve our specialists at an early stage. Apart from avoiding a dispute, this also enables us to attain the best possible legal position for the client.
We have generally been considered a leading firm within this practice area and are highly ranked by Legal500, Chambers Global and CHambers Europe.
