Ratings

  • Brian Bundgaard is listed as a Leading Lawyer (Rising Star) as regards M&A.

    "A true star and dealmaker, very knowledgeable and an absolute pleasure to work with" (2023)

  • Brian Bundgaard is listed as a Leading Lawyer (Rising Star) as regards M&A (2019+2020+2021+2021/2022+2022)

    "Already a star in his own right, he has over the past few years won strong traction among clients and recognition of fellow peers acting on the Danish M&A scene. We have been working with him on several occasions and consider him a first choice for any large multinational M&A transaction involving Danish aspects. He is a true dealmaker with an unquestionable talent for bridging the gaps, but first and foremost he is a natural choice as trusted adviser due to his impeccable values and solid integrity. Setting the highest standards for himself and others, he goes above and beyond in pursuing the interests of his client, while at the same time always being really pleasant and pragmatic to work with for both clients and counterparties"

    "When choosing external legal service providers domestically and abroad, we screen just as much for chemistry, core values and personal integrity as for the legal capabilities of the individual lawyers we work with. He comes in first on all of our important parameters, as he aligns 1:1 with the core values we have chosen on which to base and drive our organisation. His vast deal experience, work capability, accessibility and relentless focus on delivering best-in-class legal advice and service makes him an obvious choice for any large domestic or cross-border M&A deal" (2022)
