Our international expertise and experience enable us to offer strategic and legal advice across a range of legal disciplines, whether the need arises in Denmark or abroad. We have been present in London since 1991, and our London office provides a permanent representation in the global financial hub of the City to ensure that we are close to the market.

Our clients operate internationally on an ever more globalized market and come to us with international strategic and legal challenges. We meet those challenges, drawing on our:

  • in-depth understanding of our clients’ business and market
  • seamless and cost-efficient case handling
  • decades of experience and international expertise
  • access to the World’s leading international network of law firms, Lex Mundi

Businesses from different regions across the world come from different cultural as well as legal backgrounds when considering making investments in Denmark or doing business with Danish enterprises.

Therefore, we have established four practice groups made up of partners and lawyers with intimate knowledge about the four regions that are Denmark’s most important trading partners:

  • The Nordic region
  • German-speaking countries
  • English-speaking countries
  • Asia/Pacific

This ensures that you are met by advisors who know “where you come from” and who can guide you through each step of your investment in Denmark or involvement with Danish enterprises. If you come from outside either of these regions, we will, nevertheless, of course be able to assist you.
