Real Estate and Construction Law
Progress characterizes the building and construction industry. Several complex and cost-intensive public construction projects are being realised these years. An increasing number of these projects are organised as public/private partnerships, and there is a growing focus on ensuring that construction projects are sustainable and meet environmental certification schemes.
Real estate and construction law: Legal advice in all areas

Mediation – Commercial dispute resolution
Mediation is an effective, dialogic approach to resolving disputes out of court. The meditation process focuses on the key factor: How do we proceed from here? The goal is to reach satisfactory solutions for all parties involved.
NJORD has a constructive approach to dispute resolution. Therefore, we have entered into a partnership with the Danish Mediation Institute, which, among other things, is concerned with appointing qualified mediators and advising on mediation and strategic conflict management.
