The Danish Ministry of Justice appoints Bech-Bruun lawyers as licensed administrators in connection with new act

On 1 March 2012, the new Act on Division of Matrimonial Property will enter into force. For this purpose, the Ministry of Justice will appoint a number of lawyers as licensed administrators in each judicial district.

The administrators’ tasks will be to administer the cases pertaining to the division of matrimonial property remitted by the Probate Court. The scheme is rather similar to that of licensed administrators administrating estates of deceased persons.

Among 34 applicants, Sys Rovsing, Partner, has been appointed as one of four licenced administrators by the Court of Frederiksberg.

Among 37 applicants, Johan Hartmann Stæger, Lawyer, has been appointed as one of five licenced administrators by the City Court of Copenhagen.

Only very few lawyers have been appointed administrators in each judicial district, hence emphasising Bech-Bruun’s expertise in this field.

The licence may also affect Bech-Bruun’s number of international cases on division of matrimonial property as the City Court of Copenhagen is venue for international matrimonial property cases which are to be conducted in Denmark despite the fact that none of the parties reside in the country.

With an expected rise in international cases, Bech-Bruun will expand its international expertise within the law of private property, resulting in a strengthening of its international profile and focus
