Excellent ratings in Legal 500
Also this year Legal 500, a prominent international guide to the legal market, has awarded Bech-Bruun top ratings in 12 out of 18 categories and the next highest ratings in the remaining 6 categories. Consequently Bech-Bruun is the best ranking law firm in Denmark.
In its commentary on mergers and acquisitions, Legal 500 notes the following:
"Internationally, Bech-Bruun enjoys one of the most recognisable names of any Danish firm with a clear global reach. In line with the others in the first tier it is always involved in the big-ticket, cross-border and domestic Danish M&A transactions. That was never more amply demonstrated than in its involvement in the TDC deal when it advised the consortium comprising Apax, Blackstone, KKR, Permira, and Providence, led by main rainmaker the 'highly skilled and professionally very experienced', Søren Meisling
, together with Philip Risbjørn. Michael Baaring Lerche headed the team advising CVC Capital Partners on its €2bn sale of pan-Nordic building materials distributor DT Group, to Wolseley plc, in terms of deal value, one of the largest negotiated Danish M&A transactions ever."
