Bech Bruun is very business minded and know the importance of truly understanding our business in order to provide useful advice. Bech Bruun can be pragmatic and understand our needs in the sense that we do not (always) need a 10 page long legal written note but (most often) quick and understandable advice on which way to go
Good coordination across offices globally. Gave us one point of contact in country and appeared to collaborate with its member firms such that we didn’t have to as a client
Very diligent and commercially oriented. Going for a good deals rather than just being a legal advisor
I think the team is very professional and to the point. Only limited overrun on costs and very informative about it. Most importantly, they are very proactive, seeing issues before they arise. Some law firms are more reactive
The unique thing is that the team really takes ownership of the full M&A process. Other legal firms tend to only cover the legal part, but BB takes a unique overall view of the whole process and individuals involved
Dedicated team with broad knowledge and experience in the M&A area. The team’s contributions to deal structure and contractual framework are extremely valuable and often provide creative solutions to address critical points in the process. Understanding the client’s business and needs is a key strength of the team
A great M&A team with deep knowledge around their field
We have used Bech Bruun for more than a decade, and Bech Bruun has become our exclusive advisor on M&A and all corporate law issues. Bech Bruun is involved in all aspects of M&A, including derived issues such as Data Protection Law, Competition and Anti-trust Law, International Transfer of Assets, international Insurance Law etc
Bech-Bruun’s service has been consistently outstanding. They provide a very complete range of expertise, and on top of that have an impressive commercial and strategic competence. The quality of every single individual is excellent. They take the lead in resolving issues and are trusted advisors, not merely lawyers
The most important for us as a fast-moving company in a fast-moving industry is that external lawyers are quick and pragmatic
I liked this team and would work with them on future Danish deals
I’ve now worked with Steen Rode a few times and he’s really outstanding. Taking upon the full responsibility on M&A matters – end to end. Steen has a great commercial mind and is playing the ball not the man
Steen Rode is very energetic and has an extremely positive mind, which is having a positive impact on all working with him. He is very experienced and professional as well as having an entrepreneurial mind-set. He is proactive and very efficient. It means that value for money is high
Specifically Steen Rode stands out. Always available and pro-active in trouble shooting. Tends to have a ‘low profile’ approach in negotiations which is rare in the business where big partner egos often disturb sound commercial discussions
Steen Rode is exceptional, both as a lawyer, negotiator and as a strategic and commercial advisor to top management. He is a quick thinker, energetic and always ahead of the process, always totally committed to clients and their success. This means that Steen also identifies issues very early on and you have time to mitigate risks. In addition, Bech Bruun obviously has a complete range of legal expertise that is top notch
