IFLR1000 Rating 2016
- Energy & Infrastructure

Led by the well-respected Per Hemmer, the energy and infrastructure practice at Bech-Bruun can be ranked among some of the very best in Denmark. Clients praise the team’s competence and service-minded approach and praise the work of every lawyer they worked with.

“They are a highly professional law firm which has managed to assimilate itself to our business structure and contractual positions in a very short time frame,” says one leading industry figure. “They were adaptable to changes, flexible, and offered a very structured approach throughout. They are assertive professionals with sound commercial acumen.”

The team was involved in a number of significant deals in the energy sector, including transactional matters like advising Energinet.dk on its acquisition of Dong Storage, a Stenlille gas storage facility, from Dong Energy.
