Hans Dahlberg Kolga

Partner, Member of the Swedish Bar Association


I primarily work with matters related to construction projects of different kinds. The issues can be disputes, new contracts or advice under active contracts for the industry sector, facilities or housing projects in Sweden or abroad.

My background comes from arbitration and court proceedings. I have represented clients in a large amount of different disputes in various venues and have experience of Swedish as well as international disputes. My background from dispute resolution is very valuable in the work with issues that may come up, handling of different types of claims and in the negotiations for new contracts. My clients are Swedish and foreign construction companies, companies active within the energy and transport sector and also Swedish public authorities. I much enjoy lecturing on procedural and construction law, and also my assignments as arbitrator.
