Life is a jungle of contracts – we conclude contracts unnoticed every day. An agreement is not always needed when things are going well, but rather when things are not going according to the plan.

In challenging situations, you should seek help from a legal expert to ensure the best possible outcome for yourself. We help with all possible matters related to agreements and help prevent potential conflict situations in advance.

When claiming damages, special care and preciseness is key. When claiming damages, in addition to proving the occurrence of the damage itself, the causal link between the damage and the act must be proven, along with intent and negligence on the counterpart’s side. Filing claims for damages in court without legal assistance usually leads to an undesirable outcome. We have extensive experience in successful handling of various claims, such as claims assessments, preparation of claims and litigation processes. We assist both individuals and companies.

Legal aid and legal expenses insurance

We determine whether you are eligible for legal protection based on insurance or through public legal aid. Legal expenses insurance included in home insurance or other insurance may compensate litigation costs in certain situations such as civil cases, criminal cases and family law issues. If legal aid is granted, the legal costs incurred are reimbursed, in whole or in part, from state funds.

We also provide service in healthcare matters, such as treatment injury issues.
