Dispute resolution

By carefully thinking a transaction through, identifying potential future complications and risks and preparing contracts that govern all material elements, it is possible to considerably reduce the risks of future problems between you and your opposite party. We deal with situations like this every day. However, all business transactions, partnerships and operations entail a latent risk of misunderstandings or disagreements that may develop into conflicts and disputes.

Legal proceedings may often be protracted and expensive. Consequently, it is important to carefully analyse all opportunities and risks before initiating proceedings. We always strive to provide clear, carefully considered advice to our clients on the prospects of future proceedings. There may well be a constructive way of resolving the dispute via a settlement that allows both parties to win. However, if a dispute is considered to be the best way forwards, we will conduct it with all our energy, drawing on our shared knowledge and experience.

Several of our employees have a solid background in dispute resolution, i.e. proceedings in public courts and in arbitration proceedings. We are often engaged as counsel in disputes between companies in different sectors. The firm’s employees who work in this speciality also have experience of representing clients in Swedish courts. And we regularly act as arbitrators.

We regularly assist our clients with the following:

  • Counsel in commercial and other types of litigation at district courts and higher courts
  • Counsel in commercial arbitration disputes
  • Analysis and advice before and during disputes
  • Mediation in commercial disputes
  • Acting as arbitrators
  • Redemption disputes (redemption of minority shares in limited companies)

It is valuable to be part of the decision-making process at clients, particularly where we have managed to build up a relationship based on mutual trust, where my clients feel that they can call me to kick ideas around. Consequently, personal contact with you, our clients, is extremely important, and not only for me. When we work towards a shared goal, it creates deeper understanding and thus better focus in the process.

My job at the firm is to be one of our experts in general commercial law, with the focus on commercial contract law, company law, business transfers, property law and disputes. I am regularly engaged to provide advice on commercial law matters and have wide experience of negotiating and drafting contracts in both Swedish and English. I regularly act as counsel in courts and arbitration proceedings.

I started working at Sigeman & Co in 2011 and have been a member of the Swedish Bar Association since 2013.

Meeting many different people in a range of industries with different problems is a perk of the profession and is necessary for me to be able to do a good job. The essence of what I do is to analyse issues, scale down the less important elements and find the crux of the matter based on the law and your operations and with your assistance.

In my professional life, I have advised Swedish and foreign companies on general commercial law matters. In providing this advice, I have gained wide experience of drafting, reviewing and negotiating contracts in both Swedish and English. My role at Sigeman & Co covers a broad spectrum of commercial law, everything from complex, extensive contracts on partnerships, business transfers, etc. to regular advice on more minor matters. I have been working for many years in property and construction contract law and also have extensive experience as counsel in courts and arbitration proceedings.

I have been at Sigeman & Co since 1994, a member of the Swedish Bar Association since 1997 and a partner of the firm since 2001. I like to share my knowledge in other fora and am often engaged as a lecturer by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Southern Sweden.

Every working day, I appreciate the wide variety of assignments and clients we have worked on and built up over the years, despite our modest size. Since I and a few colleagues established the firm in 1991, I have been involved in a broad spectrum of commercial law matters.

I focus today on general commercial law with the emphasis on labour law and dispute resolution for both Swedish and foreign companies. I have worked on this type of matter for over 25 years as adviser, counsel and arbitrator. I often work as adviser and trainer in labour law for large organisations, as well as for individual senior executives. I also act as chairman and secretary at the annual general meetings of listed companies. Since the mid-90s, I have acted as arbitrator in a large number of disputes, often within the framework of the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce.

It is important to me to also work outside my role at the firm. I have been teaching labour law to law students at Lund University for many years and I have board positions in various trade associations. Other posts include chairman of the Labour Law Association of Southern Sweden (Arbetsrättsliga föreningen i Södra Sverige), chairman of the Arbitration Board of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Southern Sweden and board member of the Swedish Institute for Mediation.

I have been a member of the Swedish Bar Association since 1990. Since November 2010, I have been approved as a meditator by the international CEDR, Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution, London.
