Dispute Resolution

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 Law Firm, 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 Law Firm 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:

We represent our clients at the ordinary courts and at courts of arbitration in order to settle disputes, including:

NJORD Law Firm’s 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:

NJORD Law Firm’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 Law Firm 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.


Legal 500 ranks NJORD’s dispute resolution team in tier 3.

“NJORD Law Firm is particularly recommended for insurance, maritime and IP disputes and regularly acts for national and international clients including Scandlines, Nike/Converse and Codan. The group was strengthened by the arrival of Thomas Donatzky from Accura Advokatpartnerselskab and the promotion of Malene Fagerberg and Frank Jørgensen to the partnership.”

Chambers and Partners describe the team as

“A broad department which handles insurance, maritime, media and administrative law issues as well as contentious matters in the food, pharmaceutical and shipping industries. Boasts an impressive roster of clients including multinational corporations, and new client wins include Færgesekretariatet and Primera Air Scandinavia.”

In addition, they highlight the team’s strengths as “great internal resources” and can be “highly flexible in terms of hours, billing and scope of work.”
