We advise clients on and handle lawsuits involving all issues related to IP (intellectual property) law and normally represent the rights holder.

Our clients include several of Denmark’s leading businesses, large multinational companies, medium-sized Danish businesses, start-up businesses and individuals.

We have a large dedicated group of partners, attorneys and administrative staff, who are engaged in trademark advisory services, including portfolio work. We can assist our clients from A-Z regarding trademark law – from submission of trademark applications all over the world to litigation before the Danish courts, the European Court of Justice and the international complaints boards for domain names.

We aim to provide proactive advisory services that take into account the different commercial needs of our clients and we have had trusting relationships for many years with some of Denmark’s largest businesses regarding trademarks.
