Dispute resolution

Arntzen de Besche offers market-leading expertise in dispute resolution.

Advice from our lawyers

Arntzen de Besche provides comprehensive, creative, reliable, and cost-effective assistance in dispute resolution. Our large, dedicated dispute resolution group work systematically to develop the most effective dispute resolution strategies, while making sure that our team is tailored to fit your commercial goals.

  • For complex cases, Arntzen de Besche employs digital platforms for managing and reviewing evidence. This allows us to quickly become familiarized with complex factual matters and enablesus to provide clear advice at an early stage.
  • Upon establishing a sufficient overview of the factual and legal matters, our lawyers will determine the estimated value of the claim at hand and the associated risk exposure. We firmly believe that a clear valuation (probability-weighted expected value) provides our clients with a significantly better basis for decision-making compared to assessing claims in abstract terms.
  • At the end of the initial phase, our lawyers use the valuation of the claim to devise a coherent strategy for achieving our clients’ objectives.

We offer effective assistance in all stages of potential disputes and settlement negotiations. Our lawyers are trained in legal project management and provide cost-effective solutions for the dispute at hand.

Settlement negotiations, provisional measures, and enforcement actions

Our dispute resolution team has extensive experience in mediation and settlement negotiation, including settlement negotiations supervised by the courts as part of civil court proceedings. Additionally, Arntzen de Besche is an industry leader in securing and defending against provisional measures (freezing orders and injunctive relief), as well as court orders authorizing the acquisition of evidence outside of legal proceedings. Upon reaching final and binding decisions, we provide expert effective assistance in enforcement through the court system and the Bailiff (Norw.: “Namsmannen”).
