It is in infrastructure work, though, where the firm has perhaps been most successful. Most notably this sees it continue to advise Femern on the environmental and associated issues regarding the drafting of the bill concerning the construction and operation of the Fehmarnbelt Fixed Link to Germany.

Another ongoing example of that regulatory work sees a team led by partner Hanne Mølbeck continue to advise Metroselskabet on all aspects of the planning, construction and operation of the Copenhagen Metro. This year that saw the firm involved in the drafting of a bill by the Danish Ministry of Transport seeking to contain the noise pollution caused by the extensive construction of the new City Circle Line.
