Swedish Contract Law - One of Navia Law's Main Strengths

A well crafted agreement may provide many advantages

Agreements with customers and various business partners may be considered the foundation of a business and the value of building a business around great contracts should not be underestimated. A favorable agreement is a valuable asset and are often very useful in a discussion with a business partner, not only if there is an actual dispute.


In discussions between two parties on how to resolve a situation that has arisen in a business relationship, often the party that has the strongest support in the agreement has a very important and powerful advantage in the discussions and negotiations. The advantage may often lead to that party having its way, which in turn may lead to a positive financial impact for that party, e.g. in the form of increased revenue or an expense that may be avoided.


A contractual benefit can occur in many places and in various forms of contracts, whether in general terms and conditions, in industry standard terms conditions or an individually negotiated contract. Such contratual advantages may be part of the interpretation of a provision for the delivery obligation under INCOTERMS, in payment terms or a termination clause, concerning the calculation of royalty, invoking a performance guarantee, in the validity of a waiver, hidden in the conditions for a transfer or conditions for use of certain intellectual property rights of a license, etc.
