OEBERGS successfully represented shipowners in Sweden’s largest procurement litigation

OEBERGS has successfully represented Stockholms Sjötrafik AB and Ressel Rederi AB in their litigation against Stockholm County Council in the largest procurement of ship management and operation service contract in Sweden. The decision of the Supreme Administrative court of appeal has now gained legal force and means in essence that the procurement shall be aborted and a new procurement needs to be made.

-The consequences of this outcome cannot be overstated, says advokat Jan Stålhandske, lead attorney for the winning plaintiffs. This litigation is a healthy lesson for the Stockholm County Council and is a good reminder of a basic but important principle in all procurement: all tenderers must be treated equal.
