Career

Morten Kofmann provides specialist advice on all aspects of EU and Danish competition law, including multi-jurisdictional merger procedures, international cartel investigations, abuse of dominance questions, distribution strategies, civil damages actions, compliance programmes, and state aid issues. Morten was a resident partner in Brussels from 1996 to 2001 and became a partner in Kromann Reumert in 2001.


Morten has extensive experience in obtaining merger control approval from the European Commission and the Danish Competition and Consumer Authority, including complex Phase I and Phase II merger reviews. He has also been involved in international and global cartel investigations such as the Airfreight investigation for SAS and the Power Cables investigation for the NKT Group.

Morten has a particular flair for predicting and understanding the stance that will be taken by the competition authorities, and for finding solutions to accommodate their concerns. He also excels in handling delicate matters that require manoeuvring with diplomacy and tact - such as, for example, internal investigations in difficult cartel cases, where working with the management to select the right strategy, approach and process are key factors in securing the best possible outcome.

He is often the preferred counsel to represent Danish "national champions" in abuse cases and has litigated landmark cases before the Danish and European Union Courts in Luxembourg, including the SAS/Maersk Air case.
