Finnish building company
Settlement of large-scale construction dispute
We successfully represented a major Finnish construction company in a dispute and settlement negotiations concerning a large construction project. The dispute mainly concerned liabilities for additional and change works as well as project delays, and the value of the claims of the parties was approximately EUR 50 million.
If the case had not been settled, it would have been one of the largest construction disputes ever tried in the Finnish courts. The projected number of hearing days was unprecedentedly more than 300 days.
To find an amicable solution to the extensive dispute, the parties engaged in settlement negotiations and court mediation. Eventually, the parties reached an amicable settlement to the full satisfaction of our client and thus the parties avoided the costs and risks of an extensive trial.
