‘AG Advokat has provided my company with a fixed team set up. Our two key contacts consists of a senior and junior legal counsel, both with high knowledge and engagement in our company business. AG Advokat works long-term with a common goal picture according to our company’s interests. This is demonstrated in part by their tailored strategies and their risk analysis. AG Advokat tells you what you need to hear rather than what you want to hear, and their recommendations are therefore always precisely designed and with a precision that is appreciated.’

Furthermore, the team consists of several ambitious and impeccable members who are good at picking up the general and specific intentions that we as a client have and is able to convert those into applicable contract texts without long discussions and a lot of corrections. Their work is in general very efficient compared to many other firms.’
‘They are exceptionally good at formulating precise and comprehensible contracts and at the same time they are good at quickly taking new information and putting that new information into the right context and present a strategy and a way forward for a favourable outcome on our behalf. This is especially true for Anders Skägg.’
‘I think AG is familiar with the problems from the first meeting and directly perceives our needs. In many cases, you need to guide lawyers first but not at AG.’
