Meet the team.

Poul Schmith has grown to be one of Denmark’s largest and leading full-service law firms. The firm attracts and only employs the most talented lawyers, which makes it a clear market leader. The growth has been organic without any mergers.

In addition to advising private Danish and international clients, the firm has been the preferred legal adviser to the Danish government since 1936 which gives it a deep understanding of the political environment that its clients operate in.

The firm has a particularly strong restructuring and insolvency practice, which assists clients with all matters relating to restructuring and insolvency including complicated debt collection proceedings, asset tracing, bankruptcy administration and turnarounds of distressed businesses.

In recent years the firm has made a strategic move to increase its market share of corporate clients, including banks, pension funds, insurance companies and private equity funds, and is experiencing an increased demand for services from such clients.
