Construction Law

Construction projects are often large and complex works involving multiple parties. Projects are often long-term and can also change along the way, which can raise a variety of complex questions.  In recent years, the impact of global events on construction law has become even clearer. This carries with it the need to quickly identify the challenges that the project faces as a result and the measures that need to be taken to address them, both immediately and over the long term.

Deeper understanding of the construction industry

Every project is unique. As a result, demands are high as regards practical experience, sensitivity and negotiation skills. 

Our construction law specialists have many years of practical experience in the construction industry, both as in-house counsel and through many years of close cooperation with some of Sweden’s largest contractors. This means that we have worked on everything from smaller maintenance contracts to the implementation of complex infrastructure projects, which has given us a deeper understanding of the construction industry as well asthe challenges and needs of the parties involved.

We work daily with the Construction Contracts Committee’s (BBK) standard contracts (e.g. AB 04, ABT 06, ABK 09 and ABM 07) and questions about the AMA system (including technical AMAs and MERs) as well as other Swedish and international standard contracts used in the industry. 

With a strategic approach to negotiation and contract drafting, we work proactively to avoid disputes on a project. If a dispute becomes a fact, we assist in the process. We combine the skills of construction law specialists and dispute resolution specialists to provide the expertise that is required in a legal proceeding.
