How we may help
We are long-standing advisers to life insurance companies and pension funds on compliance, financial regulation, preparation of life insurance products and the distribution of such products. Our services include rendering advice to Danish and international institutional investors on investment in private equity structures/alternative investment in Denmark and abroad.

Our litigation clients number several insurance companies on whose behalf we have conducted several cases concerning life insurance cover, including cover for industrial injury, loss of earning capacity, etc.

We often assist managements with organisational changes and act as chairmen of general meetings.

New regulatory requirements in the life insurance area make demands on the organisation, internal business procedures and policies. Money laundering regulations, for instance, make demand on the customer documentation and require constant monitoring of the customer relationship.

Finally, the structure of pension funds owned by its members is subject to special requirements, both in terms of pension fund investments and pension fund operation.
