The state of the law changes. And times change. Nowadays, it does not always suffice for organisations to comply with the law. The public expects for enterprises and organisations to act in a manner which is ethically and socially responsible, to be insusceptible to bribery and – for public authorities – to properly administer civil funds.

The state of the law changes. And times change. Nowadays, it does not always suffice for organisations to comply with the law. The public expects for enterprises and organisations to act in a manner which is ethically and socially responsible, to be insusceptible to bribery and – for public authorities – to properly administer civil funds. 

The new act on Measures to Prevent Money Laundering – and international rules on anti-corruption measures – provide for sanctions in the form of large fines to be imposed on enterprises and, in a worst-case scenario, imprisonment of the persons subject to the rules. 

We assist enterprises, organisations and public authorities wishing to prevent incidents of corruption and bribery within their own areas and requesting or having a need to be able to document their efforts.

We also assist in cases where organisations are suspected of offering or accepting bribes, or if suspicion exists that employees of an organisation are corrupt. We also offer assistance to organisations being subjected to criminal offences committed either by employees or third parties, and we conduct investigations of external parties when a need exists for ensuring that business partners live up to the highest standards in the field. We assist in, for example, the investigation of suspicious activities and the securing of evidence, crisis management, contact to relevant authorities, drafting of any reports filed with the police, calculation of claims for damages, etc.

Our advisory services include:

  • Programmes for the prevention of bribery
  • Internal systems for control and documentation of anti-corruption efforts
  • Criminal proceedings concerning corruption and misappropriation of public funds
  • Investigation of the compliance level of suppliers and distributors
  • Economic crime
  • International criminal proceedings
  • Direct and indirect taxes - criminal proceedings
  • Criminal proceedings pertaining to money laundering and other financial crimes
  • Marketing, trade secrets and industrial espionage
  • Drafting of compliance programmes in relation to the Danish Act on Measures to Prevent Money Laundering and Financing of Terrorism
  • Implementation by means of advisory services and training
  • Establishment of contact to the authorities on any violation of law.

Our team is made up of highly qualified and experienced lawyers within the field working closely together with specialists from all relevant practice areas. We work closely together with, among others, legal advisers from the practice groups Data Protection, M&A and Corporate Matters, Labour and Employment Law and Public Law & Administration.
