Testimonials

‘The team is outstanding. They cover the full spectrum of public law counselling. And the team consists of the best in their field in Denmark. They are good at complementing each other, and use each other and each other’s skills to create the best result for the client.’

‘Nielsen Nørager is highly professional, and very conscious about the importance of specialisation in various legal disciplines. In my view, Nielsen Nørager does not only talk the talk, but they do indeed walk it too, which quite a lot of law firms do not. This ensures that the team holds in-depth knowledge about dispute resolution, which is very much required in order to secure success. They are able to make distinctions between important details and issues of a more general character, and they are precise, and able to present a complex issue in a simple manner. They care to walk the extra mile, which I find very important to clients.’

‘The ones I have worked with are always extremely competent and quick to face the challenges. They are thoroughly acquainted with the substance and find solutions. They are super capable at reading the context that I am in. And then they are extremely comfortable to work with.’

‘Anders Valentiner-Branth is the partner that I know best. Anders is very experienced in public law and dispute resolution, and is pragmatic and precise in his approach. He holds the gift of doubt, which is very valuable when it comes to dispute resolution. This is because being too self-assured can be dangerous, and it is surely better to go one step further to ensure that the counterpart does not have a strong point, than to underestimate him or her.’
