Lawyer Rankings

Denmark > EU, competition and public procurement

Predominantly advising large Danish and international corporates, Gorrissen Federspiel advises on the full spectrum of EU, competition and public procurement issues. The group is particularly strong in merger control work, with the ‘exceptionally skilled’ Martin André Dittmer focusing on M&A transactions for major Nordic financial institutions as well as handling regulatory and general competition law work. On the contentious side, the team has extensive experience before the Danish Supreme Court; co-head Erik Kjær-Hansen is the key name to note. Kristian Helge Andersen is also recommended.
