A firm that does transactional heavy lifting despite modest size. Very capable and efficient advice!

The team is commercial and solution oriented and has a good understanding of the underlying business drivers of a deal

Moalem Weitemeyer Bendtsen has incredibly strong skills within Commercial, Corporate and M&A – also compared to many other law firms. Especially within M&A we have greatly benefited from their good insight into and experience with the area

Solution focused and thinking ahead to create a legal basis that also prepares for the unknown

The thing I believe stands out the most is the team’s agility and ability to move fast without getting stuck in internal red tape. The strengths are primarily visible in the team’s obsessiveness to seek solutions and maintain pace while not overcomplicating things. These are things and abilities that other, especially bigger, firms should try to copy

The team stands out for its in-depth M&A experience and expertise; they have excellent knowledge of market practice, both national and international. I was particularly impressed by how quickly the team understood the international (including US) dimensions and issues and was able to connect the dots

Moalem Weitemeyer Bendtsen is a dedicated Danish corporate law firm with strong international relations. With approximately 55 highly skilled employees, we are one of Denmark’s leading law firms within M&A, private equity and venture capital, real estate and distressed M&A.

At Moalem Weitemeyer Bendtsen, we believe in dedication without compromise. This means that we are always available to our clients, partners being no exception. Our advice to our clients is centered on their specific and strategic needs and goals.

We take pride in training our attorneys to call our clients instead of emailing them and to visit our clients instead of calling them. To us, client relations are professional social relations that are best developed and maintained by a continual investment of our time and genuine interest.

Our attorneys receive a broad education with individual development of key competences relevant to our clients. We have an extensive secondment programme with leading law firms worldwide as well as with several of our clients, which provides our attorneys with the opportunity to learn even more about the specific businesses as well as the legal and commercial needs of our clients. While this strengthens the professional and international skills of the individual attorney, it also enables the firm to remain professionally updated on the international market developments in a globalized world.
