Bech-Bruun to open New York office
In September 2018, Bech-Bruun law firm is opening an office in New York. The new office will be an important station in Bech-Bruun’s international counselling services in the area of wind power and is established as part of the collaboration with CIP (Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners).
To accommodate the increasing demand for Danish experts in perpetual energy and – not least – to allow even closer working relationships with clients in the energy area on an international scale, Bech-Bruun is opening a New York office. This effort allows us to accompany our international wind power clients onto the global market, and the office is established as part of Bech-Bruun’s collaboration with CIP (Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners), one of the world’s leading green infrastructure funds with particular focus on offshore wind turbines.
”Danish experts are in increasing demand outside their own jurisdiction. We assist on some major wind turbine projects and see a growing demand in for instance the USA and in Asia for Danish industry specialists. In many areas, local suppliers and experts are hard pressed to match the level found on the Danish market. The office in New York is an important step for us towards strengthened advisory services and working relationships with our international clients – wherever a wind project would be located,” says Simon Evers Kalsmose-Hjelmborg, managing partner at Bech-Bruun.
The new office will open in September 2018 and will initially be headed by Peter Østergaard Nielsen and Jakob Østervang, both partners at Bech-Bruun.
