Energy & Infrastructure

Bech-Bruun continues to develop its position as one of the leading names in the Danish energy and infrastructure market. This year it successfully expanded its team to bring in new expertise to supplement the already strong lawyers on its roster. It has also continued to impress on the energy side in particular, where it has again secured some of the most significant mandates in the Danish markets.

“Bech-Bruun’s energy team is providing a full-scope service for high-profile and complex renewable projects, including procurement, regulatory, competition, corporate and financing,” says one in-house counsel at a major European energy provider. “They have outstanding knowledge of Danish energy law and the Nordic energy market and all the relevant stakeholders. They are also very friendly, pragmatic and have a good responsiveness.”

Generally, clients praise the accuracy of the firm’s work as above average, with the work ethic of some of the senior lawyers praised in particular. 

While the firm is known for its strength in the energy market, it has also had a productive year on the infrastructure side as well. This includes the continuing advice being provided to the Region of Southern Denmark on the development of a new hospital and working with Aarhus Kommune on the public-private partnership (PPP) construction of a new office building.
