Legal market overview

 

The Danish landscape is dominated by Bech-Bruun, Gorrissen Federspiel, Kromann Reumert and Plesner, which stand out for their size, breadth of specialisms and ability to attract the largest mandates. There are also a number of well-regarded boutique firms, such as Birch Windahl, Hafnia Law Firm and Norrbom Vinding, as well as Poul Schmith Law Firm, which acts for the Danish government and authorities. Law firms such as Magnusson Advokatfirma and Bird & Bird are established foreign players in the market.

 

 

Nordic regional player Hannes Snellman closed its Copenhagen office in June 2014. MAQS Law Firm in Denmark was renamed as Njord Law Firm and continued its Nordic strategy together with the Estonian, Latvian and Lithuanian offices.

 

 

Steady economic growth in Denmark has been accompanied by a decrease in insolvencies and an uptick in M&A, particularly deals driven by private equity houses and pension funds.
