Construction contracts represent an area where disputes often arise, not least because these are large-scale projects involving huge investment where neither the property developer nor the contractor can foresee everything that may happen. Questions concerning modifications and additional work are issues we are used to dealing with.
The relationship between the customer and the contractor is not regulated by law. Instead, it is the customary standard contracts (so-called ‘‘AB contracts” based on the construction industry’s “Allmänna Bestämmelser”, or General Conditions) or project-specific agreements that are applicable.
We have great experience of standard AB contracts and have assisted clients in disputes that have had their roots in conditions ranging from AB 72 up to the most recent AB 04 and ABT 06. We have solid experience in construction industry disputes involving both arbitration and judicial proceedings and can therefore offer our clients efficiently managed proceedings where the focus is on the client’s best interests.
