Other mandates include Carsten Pedersen representing an insurer for a Danish law firm in a professional liability claim brought by former clients relating to failed real estate investments, and Claus Berg acting for the Danish Complaints Board for Public Procurement in a dispute in which Hørkram Foodservice claimed the court gave preferential treatment to a competitor in a previous case. Anne Buhl Bjelke is 'extremely knowledgeable' and 'consistently delivers high-quality service levels', and Henrik Valdorf-Hansen  and senior associate Mogens Gaarden are also key names to note.
