Dispute Resolution

We are Denmark's leading litigation law firm. Since it was founded Plesner has specialised in litigation and today we are the law firm in Denmark that conducts the biggest and most important cases on behalf of the corporate sector.

Our skills in the area are wide-ranging; from litigation in specialist areas such as accountants' professional liability, banking and finance, competition law, construction law, employment law, environmental law, insurance law, IP law, product liability and tax law to legal actions in the rather more conventional area of contract law, including all types of mergers and acquisitions.

Our success in the area, and the resulting fundament of our business, is based on the philosophy that highly specialised litigators and dedicated commitment are required to conduct and win cases for our clients. And our overall objective is simply to win the case. It is what we do best and it is what we can do. And it is also how our clients would characterise us.

Plesner's entire set-up, with dispute resolution at the centre of our litigation, has been structured to give the most possible focus and dedication to the handling of cases.

We have acquired unique knowledge sharing and knowhow about all aspects of litigation and we are proud to say that we have extensive experience in litigation in all courts in Denmark and in all fields and have detailed knowledge of all procedural rules governing such cases.
