Ever since foundation the firm has carved out three basic principles that define how it works: industry focus, an understanding of business, and outstanding expertise in the relevant areas of the law. To ensure that it keeps promises in the respective areas, Foyen has assembled specialists in industry-specific teams.

Today, the firm is present in Sweden and Norway, with about 85 in Stockholm, Gothenburg, Malmö and Falun, central Sweden, and another 85 in Oslo. Consequently, the firm can deliver business-centric legal solutions in these respective markets, but can also support assignments that involve both countries.

Areas of practice: Foyen has extensive experience of the building and construction sectors’ variety of standard contracts as well as court action. The team prepares and negotiates project-specific contractor/consultant agreement and partnership review working condition requirements and joint ventures between bidding contractors. It works both actively with dispute resolution and dispute avoidance by acting as a sounding board throughout the building process with compliance assessments, time plan extensions etc.

The firm is very familiar with managing small and large projects from start to finish within real estate transactions, financing, tenancy law and operating and service agreements with clients from all over Sweden. It also knows building permits, planning issues and real estate investment.

Within the industry, mining and forestry sector, Foyen often assists throughout the entire project chain, for example: land access, financing, agreements, joint ventures and various types of permits connected to both mineral and environmental legislation. The firm also actively contributes to a number of industry organisations, and for all intents and purposes it has become an integral part of the sector.

Foyen successfully represents client before the Supreme Court

16th of June 2020Partner Jonas Nilsson and associate Johanna Lenell have successfully represented one of Foyen's clients before the Supreme Court of Sweden. The judgment was handed down today, Tuesday 16 June.A major construction and contracting company was seeking almost SEK 10 million in compensation for personal liability under the Companies Act when the case was filed in the courts. The question which the Supreme Court has now considered is when in time liability for litigation costs arises. The Supreme Court agreed with the position advocated by us that an obligation to pay litigation costs arises on a continual basis as the costs are incurred and not when the judgment is issued. Given the outcome in the Supreme Court, the earlier holding by the Court of Appeal for Western Sweden remains in force and our client is only ordered to pay SEK 50,000 to the opposing party in respect of a minor issue in the case, while our client has their litigation costs compensated by the other party.For more information contact:Jonas Nilsson, Partner +46 708-25 78 79, jonas.nilsson@foyen.se

Construction and engineering projects involve major investments and significant time and costs pressure, not seldom resulting in quality problems in the final results. Over the past 20 years, interest has grown notably in Sweden for alternative models for carrying out construction projects. One such model involves a higher level of cooperation or “partnering”.
