How can we help?
Our clients find that despite having strong in-house HR expertise, they require expert advice and legal assistance in many aspects of Danish and international employment and labour law.
For more than 30 years, we have advised listed companies, international corporations and SMEs as well as public authorities and municipalities on issues within all areas of employment and labour law. Our multi-discipline approach and effective resource allocation ensures our clients exhaustive advice that takes all relevant matters into account.
We also have long-standing experience in conducting cases of general public importance before the ordinary Danish courts, the Danish Labour Court, the Danish Unfair Dismissals Tribunal as well as arbitration tribunals.
Three decades of intense labour market regulation have resulted in increasingly complex and extensive employment and labour legislation. Moreover, many Danish companies are subject to collective agreements, which may make it difficult to determine which set of rules applies.
An increasing number of companies are also faced with challenges arising from the new transnational dimensions that today’s highly international labour market brings about.
