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. When necessary, we are ready to litigate – and to go all the way for our clients.

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 actual 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 and claim damages. Our clients include a range of multinational corporations, investment funds, and financial service providers, as well as major European, Nordic, and Danish companies.

NJORD Law Firm’s experts within these areas have extensive experience with large 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 litigation strategies and 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.

NJORD Law Firm’s main market covers the entire Nordic/Baltic region and Northern Europe. 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 or coordinate litigation across borders.

In addition to experience, litigation management requires a certain kind of persistence and dedication as such cases may last several years and all facts must be uncovered. We have what it takes, and use it in the best interest of our clients.
