The firm: Foyen is a commercial law firm which was founded in 1987. 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. In these teams, the firm systematically builds knowledge and insight, partly through on-the-job experience, and partly through continuous training – both internal and external.

The firm’s primary practice areas are the construction and real estate industry, technology-intensive industry, mining and forestry, public transactions, the energy sector, the environmental sector, IT law, and cross-industry business law. Clients include both foreign and Swedish companies and organisations, from all areas of the private and public sectors.

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.

Foyen provides assistance for the public sector and works with procurement on a daily basis, in everything from strategic issues and preparation of tender documents to major infrastructure projects in construction and maintenance and basic services. The team has extensive experience of defining new tenders, advice about on-going procurement process or evaluation, hearings with suppliers and drafting of a distribution notice.

The firm’s IT lawyers has many years’ experience of working with all types of high-technology companies, intellectual property rights and data integrity and assists clients in connection with both new business contracts as well as judicial proceedings and arbitration. The firm also assists private and public bodies with reviews and advice with respect to the important area of personal data processing.

Over the years Foyen have worked in all the main areas of the energy sector. It assists clients in issues related to environmental regulatory permit processes, procurement and cost estimate specifications and consultant responsibility. The firm has put together a specific industry team, with legal experts who together can offer a virtually unrivalled combination of experience and legal expertise in the energy sector.

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 works with contract negotiations, mergers and acquisitions, refinancing, insolvency issues and commercial disputes on a daily basis. Other common assignments concern licensing and distribution agreements, as well as employment law.
