Global Reach

Our clients think globally, and so do we. We work as part of your team, helping solve your toughest and most complex legal issues. No matter where you are. Through decades we have been working in teams with leading law firms in the Nordic region, the U.S., the U.K. and Germany. Furthermore, we are closely connected with other top tier law firms in almost 110 jurisdictions.

Inbound services

Chambers Global ranks Plesner in the top tier in all categories. We rank as No 1 for Banking & Finance, Corporate/M&A, Dispute Resolution and Intellectual Property. This makes us the firm of choice among international corporations doing business in Denmark, and among leading international law firms looking for a local partner.

Our ability to select the right teams and to integrate across the relevant legal disciplines in multiple jurisdictions is what sets us apart.

As a truly independent law firm, Plesner has built strong relationships with top tier law firms in all major jurisdictions. Our partner law firms are market leaders in their own jurisdictions and serve as Plesner's bridge to the rest of the world. We profoundly invest in developing efficient working relationships with our partner law firms.

We understand our clients' demands for speed, quality, availability and risk management, both in terms of documentation and commercially. Whether we work alone or together with our partner law firms, we deliver seamless and cost-efficient services, which enables us to give clients the very special treatment they are entitled to expect.

Outbound services

Our clients think globally, and so do we. For decades, we have worked with leading law firms in the Nordic region, the US, the UK and Germany. We also have close relationships with other top tier law firms in almost 110 jurisdictions.

Our Danish clients do business all over the world, and we support them all the way. Through daily contact with our partner law firms and our general commitment to international professional networks, we build strong relationships in markets where we do not have a physical presence.

We identify the most capable foreign law firms to assist our clients in terms of the best and most effective handling of a matter. We pass on our understanding of the relevant client's business and culture to the foreign law firm, in order to provide the right basis for legal advice being tailored our clients' needs.

Our attorneys have extensive experience from leading international law firms, primarily in London and New York and have gained experience with respect to market practices and local legal matters that our Danish clients will be able to benefit from when setting up business or investing in foreign markets, or in connection with proceedings in foreign jurisdictions.
