Norburg & Scherp Advokatbyrå is a specialist firm for arbitration and litigation based in Stockholm, Sweden. It was founded in 2013 by experienced dispute specialists Fredrik Norburg and Pontus Scherp. Norburg & Scherp acts as counsel in Swedish and international arbitration under institutional rules, including the SCC, ICC and the Finland Chamber of Commerce Arbitration Rules, and ad hoc under the UNCITRAL Rules and the Swedish Arbitration Act. Norburg & Scherp also represents clients in commercial litigation before Swedish courts of all types and instances. The firm’s lawyers are regularly appointed as arbitrators in Swedish and international arbitration.

There are no form requirements for an arbitration agreement to be enforceable under Swedish law. Thus, an arbitration agreement can be entered into in writing or orally, or can be formed by the conduct of the parties. The general principles under Swedish contract law also apply to the formation and interpretation of arbitration agreements.

As regards the substance of the arbitration agreement, three cumulative requirements must be fulfilled according to the Arbitration Act. First, there must be an agreement between the parties to refer the dispute to arbitration. Second, the arbitration agreement must identify a defined legal relationship to be covered by the arbitration agreement. Third, there must be a clear reference to arbitration and not to some other form of dispute resolution.
