Commercial litigation

Working with other parties – regardless of how – will always involve the need to find solutions to suit different points of view and differences of opinion. Fortunately, you will find that you are able to work together to build bridges and find solutions in the majority of cases. But what do you do if you find that this is not possible (any more)?

BarentsKrans has a great deal of experience of working with clients to help them achieve the best result: further to negotiations, where possible and in proceedings where no other alternative exists. A whole world of possibilities can be explored between negotiations and legal proceedings: mediation, a binding advice or arbitration can sometimes yield better results and in less time, often even without needing to sacrifice the business relationship between the parties involved. What would benefit you most in your situation? That’s something that we would be happy to discuss with you.

Should it become necessary to institute proceedings, we can help you to keep the difference between being right and being proved right as small as possible. We have an unparalleled understanding of how legal proceedings work and will do our utmost to maximise your opportunities.

We act for clients in all kinds of commercial disputes that could arise in relation to:

– cooperation agreements
– purchases and sales
– storage and distribution
– agencies and franchise
– business services
– software and ICT
– product liability


One client says: “The BarentsKrans team uses resources efficiently,” and adds: “We have very good co-operation and no barrier in communication.” Sources additionally draw attention to the firm’s “hands-on mentality.” Chambers Global & Europe 2019
