Legal market overview

With the Danish economy growing, many law firms are experiencing an increase in cross-border mandates in the real estate and construction market, as Denmark is considered to be a safe haven for foreign investment. Firms in the M&A market have also seen an increase in activity, particularly in the context of international acquisitions. The Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive, which was introduced by the EU in 2011, has created regulatory challenges but, with it, also opportunities for pension funds and private equity houses.

Johan Schlüter Advokatfirma, previously a major player in the IP, media and entertainment sectors, was declared bankrupt in October 2015. A number of former partners have already moved to firms such as Aumento Law Firm, Lett Law Firm and Magnusson Advokatfirma.
