Dispute Resolution

Hellström represents clients in commercial litigation, as well as international and national arbitration proceedings. To successfully represent clients in these types of disputes, a legal team needs to have special skills, to understand the client’s business, and to have a good grasp on the complex technical and/or financial factors involved. Extensive experience is therefore instrumental in achieving the best possible result for the client.

Our clients include Swedish and international companies, as well as Swedish authorities and municipalities. We serve clients in a wide variety of business sectors, including banking and finance, energy, chemistry, construction, real estate, IT, pharmaceuticals, and tobacco.

We take a results-oriented approach and strive to provide our clients with the best possible advice from the earliest stages of a dispute up until the final award or judgment, if any. This includes risk assessment, defensive measures, and assistance in the enforcement stage once an award or judgment has been handed down. Negotiations with the counterparty for a possible settlement often become a natural part of the process. A prolonged dispute often drains resources from a client’s daily operations and can endanger the future of the entire business. These situations demand a legal team with a history of efficient case management, patience, and the ability to perform under pressure, so that any adverse effects on the client’s business can be limited. Experience is paramount in such situations.

We are dedicated to providing our clients with the best legal advice and representation in dispute cases and to seek the best possible outcome for the client. Our clients recognise and appreciate this commitment. We believe that our dedication and proactive advice, coupled with clear recommendations, is the key to success in dispute resolution. We can therefore offer legal assistance that rivals even the biggest law firms.

We are ranked in respected guides such as the Legal 500.
