New book on Contract law in Sweden
A recently published book opens the door to Swedish contract law to an international audience, providing a practical analysis of the law of contracts in Sweden, and serves as a guide for both business and legal professionals handling transnational and Swedish contracts.
The authors, Senior Professor of Law at the School of Economics and Management at Lund University Boel Flodgren, and Eric M. Runesson, partner with Sandart & Partners in Stockholm, have produced a publication that summarizes Swedish contract law, addressing some fundamental differences in terminology, application and procedure between the Swedish and international legal system. Aimed to serve as a guide for lawyers representing parties with interest in Sweden, it covers topics like:
- definition and classification of contracts
- contractual liability
- relation to the law of property,
- burden of proof
- penalty clauses,
- arbitration clauses,
- remedies in case of non-performance,
- power of attorney.
The book demonstrates that Swedish law can be seen as a link between the common law systems and the civil law systems. Read more about the book here.
