Successful “speedy resolution”
In November 2022, Holst, represented a contractor during “speedy resolution” proceedings – and won. As part of the dispute resolution ladder under AB18, certain types of disputes may be subject to "speedy resolution"; in such cases, proceedings are very compact and re-quire that you are well-prepared and on top of things from the very beginning.
Holst, represented the contractor in a case about the scope of some agreed unit prices; more specifically about whether the employer could instruct the contractor to use certain equipment and methods for performing additional works and make use of stipulated “miscellaneous items” from the tender list. The employer wanted to split up the individual stages of work. The umpire agreed with the contractor and found that it had not been proven that “miscellaneous items” could be used for settling the additional works.
Attorney Holger Schöer and Assistant attorney Emma Venø Bredtoft won the case on behalf of the contractor.
