DLA Piper Denmark is a premier commercial law firm in Denmark with a strong national and international practice - particularly within corporate M&A, Banking and finance, restructuring and insolvency, capital markets, Project Development and Real Estate. In Denmark DLA Piper has more than 350 people in offices located in Copenhagen and Aarhus and we have global access to new technologies, cross-border capabilities with global reach and sector-specific experience.
Recently, DLA Piper has entered into the Danish market and become a strong and competitive key-player known for its cross-border capabilities and deal flow of landmark M&A-cases.
We overlay our global practice groups with global sector teams, which are designed specifically to reflect our clients’ business markets. Sector teams are cross-practice, and when advice is required the DLA Piper lawyer acting on a specific matter will be well versed in that relevant sector; as well as in regulatory, risk and the wider legal issues relevant to the sector our clients operate in.
As part of a global law firm DLA Piper is the only global law firm in Denmark with a truly pan-Nordic presence, positioning us to help clients with their legal needs in the Nordic countries as well as around the world.
"The perfect team for any assignment."
"I have been extremely satisfied with the services provided and the dedication of the team."
"They are good and pragmatic."
"They are an excellent firm in general. We haven't used anyone else in this field for the last 10 years. They are the only firm for us; outstanding. They were easily able to complete a high volume of work on time and without a problem. [They have] the right people and the right skills, offers excellent value for money and has the integrity to bill fairly – they don't charge for a partner when the associate does most of the work. The price was very reasonable and they handled the cross border extra-jurisdictional element very smoothly. In the documentation of securities, they are absolutely without equal."
"The firm is timely, practical, offers a good business understanding, are good negotiators, deliver high quality and are finishers."
"The firm provides highly skilled lawyers and performs well when compared to other firms in this area."
"What impressed me most [about the capital markets team] is that you don’t have a whole lot of law firms in Denmark with experience in covered bonds for small and medium-sized enterprises. Here we had someone with a track record in this field and who was able to deliver at a very reasonable cost."
"They showed very solid knowledge and good project management in a relatively large private equity transaction involving many parties. They focus on the material issues."
