WHAT WE CAN DO FOR YOU
RiVe Juridiska Byrå is a leading labour law firm in Sweden. We represent a large number of individuals, companies and authorities on a yearly basis.
Labour law is a broad and multifaceted area. There are always two parties to a dispute. We have extensive experience in representing either side of the negotiation.
RiVe takes a comprehensive approach to labour law. Our experts assist individuals in labour law concerns against current or former employers. Similarly, our lawyers represent companies and organisations in employee matters and in interactions with trade unions, government authorities and EU institutions.
Our work approach is result-oriented and based on our own self-developed methodology. Combined with our legal team’s in-depth knowledge and advanced insights into the industry, we are always able to work for the best interest of our clients.
At RiVe Juridiska Byrå, we always strive to achieve the best outcome regardless of the situation.
Unlike other law firms who focus on the client’s potential rights, RiVe instead focuses on the client’s interests. You, as our client, are always our prime focus. Thereafter come your potential rights.
Our approach is considerably more pragmatic in relation to legal matters and negotiation challenges than is the case with other firms.
Some legal matters cannot be won due to inadequate rights; despite this, there often remain opportunities to reach success if alternative pressures are presented in a negotiation.
We call our method the Alternate Attack Path (AAP) and apply it as an alternative work approach when traditional approaches stall or if we face unforeseen delays.
Other methods applied by the firm vary from structured proof of evidence work to extensive legal measures that safeguard the client’s interests and potential rights.
Our goal is to win. If the playing field does not permit a win, then the firm aims to change the playing field.
Our mindset is always to win. Whether we represent individuals in work disputes or large international groups in negotiations with Swedish trade unions, this core philosophy always prevails.
Our approach has been successful over the years and we have largely achieved our client-oriented goals. RiVe Juridiska Byrå stands today one of Sweden’s leading front line negotiators and is widely regarded as a prominent expert firm within labour law.
