Practice head(s):

Jeppe Reipurth; Christian B. Prophet-Rannow

Other key lawyers:

Nikolaj Byriel-Øvall


‘Skau Reipurth has a hands-on approach. They use a single point of entry thus keeping continuity in the client relationship. They are staffed sufficiently but the practice is still small enough to keep every client well served and feel centered.’

‘They are experts within construction law and specifically litigation. They focus on getting the job done and excel at following up. They give confidence that they can get the job done and achieve the agreed objectives.’

‘The team is high level in its field, and is particularly recognised by a successful blend of senior, semi-senior and younger specialists, where the younger are well supported by the more experienced counsel. That provides good value and services to clients. Overall the team is easily accessible and cases are dealt with efficiently and in a hands-on manner.’

‘The practice has niche focus areas. In the area of construction and in particular construction disputes and claims, it offers specialist expertise in resolving disputes under Danish law and under Danish dispute resolution processes such as arbitration. The team brings legal (which goes without saying) and, more importantly, a strong technical understanding to the issues brought before them. The team has also shown an appreciation of our strategic goals in managing potential disputes i.e whether to litigate or not, settle or not. Although a Danish law firm they have an understanding and appreciation of the international perspective of their client and so are a good fit for advising and managing Danish disputes for clients who are international/have an international perspective.’

‘Our contact partner and the team we use is lead by Christian B. Prophet-Rannow who has been very ably assisted on various matters by Nikolaj Byriel-Øvall who is an excellent lawyer, able to manage matters for Christian with our total confidence. What stands out to other Danish law firms is the efficient delegation by Christian B. Prophet-Rannow of matters to the appropriate person within his team – in our case the time/allocation of tasks seamlessly between himself and Nikolaj. From a general counsel’s perspective they have a keen awareness of when they can manage the matter directly with the business and when general counsel input is required.’
