No status quo

Our passion is to provide significant results together with exceptional businesses and institutions. We achieve the best results by an unconventional approach and through dedicated people across our practice areas.

Our work every day is focused on being the undisputed market leader and the preferred choice for you, as client, when significant interests and assets at your business and organization are at stake. We provide savvy legal advice - especially in connection with major transactions, high-stakes disputes and strategic and complex legal issues.

Law is our field; our business is to find the optimal solution for your business in each case. Yesterday's good solution is not necessarily sufficient to meet tomorrow's challenges. 


Our transaction business is unparalleled in Denmark, covering M&A, capital markets, private investment funds, banking and finance and related fields. We focus on key sectors such as energy and infrastructure, life science, IT, and commercial real estate.

We possess extensive specialist knowledge within these fields, and due to our insistence on real teamwork we have achieved our position today with a track-record of handling the largest and most complex transactions involving Danish assets.

Our industry-leading skills and ability to look beyond the narrow prism of the law are why our clients turn to us time and again, seeking the most value-creating advice, tailored to the individual client and transaction.

We strive to provide legal, tactical and commercial advice that meets international standards in every way, and to provide carefully selected teams tailored to the specific needs of our clients. By virtue of our size and breadth, we can quickly adapt our team and involve new specialists as required and, when needed, we draw on our strong international relationships and partnerships.

We work dynamically and always with our clients' interests at the center, while always challenging received wisdom and habitual thinking in all transactions.
