Disputes are undesirable, often demand considerable resources and attract far too much attention in the day-to-day running of the business. As a client of NJORD, you will experience that we do our best to limit the time spent on disputes as much as possible. And, if it is possible and if it serves the client’s interests, we take pride in settling such cases out of court.
NJORD has extensive experience representing clients in a wide range of business disputes. In each case, we will compose the team that will best be able to solve the concrete case, allowing us to use our competences to the full, whether that be within the general sphere of litigation, contract law or our areas of specialisation, including:
- Construction law
- Intellectual property law
- Competition law
- Tax law
- Maritime and transport law
- IT and Telecom
- Franchising and distribution
We represent our clients at the ordinary courts and at courts of arbitration in order to settle disputes, including:
- Major national and international companies
- State organisations
- Small and medium-sized companies
NJORD experts within these areas have extensive experience with lawsuits, arbitration and settlement negotiations, also as authorised mediators. We are often involved at an early stage of a negotiation process and we offer advisory services on advantages and disadvantages of individual dispute resolution models – in both national and international agreements.
We are familiar with every conceivable scenario involved in using the various types of dispute resolution models and are therefore able to offer highly qualified advisory services and ensure our clients the best possible basis for choosing the right solution.
Our advisory services include the following:
- Financial consequences of choosing a particular type of dispute resolution
- Possibilities and challenges presented by the various types of procedure
- Other commercial aspects of one type of procedure over the other
- Special challenges involved in cross-border agreements
NJORD’s main market covers the entire Nordic/Baltic region and Northern Europe, and this is an advantage to our clients in relation to dispute resolution across borders. For global clients, we function as a gateway to the entire Nordic/Baltic region, meaning that at our local offices, NJORD acts as a one-stop shop from where we regularly perform jobs across borders.
In addition to experience, conflict management requires a certain kind of persistence and dedication as such cases may last several years and all facts must be uncovered.
