Dispute resolution, arbitration and international arbitration:
Rö lawyers excel at handling complex commercial litigation mandates involving global household-name companies where there is a lot at stake for the parties involved, either monetarily or reputationally. We are highly experienced in representing multinational companies in challenging arbitration matters. We provide solid out-of-court advice to our clients via effective negotiations with the other sides and aim to steer matters towards an amicable resolution whenever reasonable. However, when litigation looks to be the best course of action, we prepare effective strategies for our clients and take steps to mitigate their risks already prior to the court proceedings.
