The firm: WSCO is a law firm specialising in the areas of shipping and transport, energy and offshore, construction, insurance, global trade and litigation and arbitration.

The firm’s primary strengths are its attorneys’ specialist expertise within its chosen areas of law, combined with the team’s ability to collaborate seamlessly on major projects and assignments.

Since 2010, the firm’s attorneys have assisted Danish and international clients, handling some of the largest and most complex transactions and disputes within the focus areas of the firm. The partners of WSCO are all attorneys with many years of experience within the firm’s focus areas and are each widely recognised as leading attorneys in their fields.

Clients choose to work with WSCO due to the specialist experience of the firm’s attorneys, its strong client dedication and focus, and the firms ability to solve clients’ most difficult challenges.

WSCO was established through a merger between the law firms of Birch Windahl and Sandroos and the admission of new partners from other leading law firms and corporations.

Areas of practice: WSCO provides legal and commercial advice based on deep insight into a number of industries that are the exclusive focus of the firm.

The industries are shipping and transport, energy and offshore, construction, global trade and insurance. In addition comes dispute resolution (litigation and arbitration) which is a horizontal area in the firm.

The businesses the firm focuses on have a number of common traits, such as long investment horizons, high-net-worth, complex collaboration patterns and considerable risks.

The firm also has considerable experience reviewing contract clauses, and assessing liability in relation to insurance cover. It assists in insurance due diligence, including corporate transactions, issues on insurance intermediation, and regulatory issues.

The firm’s attorneys have many years of experience with these industries, either as practicing attorneys, in-house counsel or executives in larger corporations. Each individual attorney has an excellent insight and many years of experience in handling the numerous complex matters arising in the relevant industry.

At the same time WSCO can offer a complete full-service solution, as groups of the firm’s attorneys can be mobilised to handle the largest cases for the individual industries. This makes the legal services more cost-efficient, as the resources are used more optimally.
