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.

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.

Despite being acknowledged as relatively small at this moment in time, its rapid development has been noted, and for that reason, efforts are being made for crowdfunding to be appropriately regulated en route to becoming one of the key sources of financing for small & medium sized enterprises in the future.
