Om Lundsgaard & Partnere

 

Lundsgaard & Partnere er en litigation boutique med speciale i rets- og voldgiftssager. Vi er involveret i de største og mest betydningsfulde retssager i Danmark og forestår sager for alle instanser, herunder Højesteret. Vi er specialiseret i at føre erhvervsmæssige, kommercielle sager af høj kompleksitet  ofte af stor økonomisk eller principiel betydning.


Lundsgaard & Partneres virke som en litigation boutique er et enestående særkende for os. Ingen anden advokatvirksomhed i Danmark har en tilsvarende profil eller strategi. Samtlige jurister hos Lundsgaard & Partnere har en specialisering og erfaring inden for litigation, som ikke kan opnås i mindre og mellemstore advokatvirksomheder, der ikke er specialiseret inden for litigation.


Vore klienter er professionelle brugere af advokatydelser inden for litigation. Uanset på hvilket stade vi engageres, fastlægger vi en strategi for sagens håndtering. Dette omfatter en risikoanalyse samt en analyse af mulige alternativer til en retssag; forligsmuligheder, mediation og andre konfliktløsningsmuligheder. Vi vurderer de økonomiske konsekvenser ved en retssag i forhold til alternative løsningsmuligheder. Vi tilpasser løbende strategien under sagsførelsen, ligesom vi nøje tilpasser ressourcerne til sagen.


Vore sager har hyppigt en størrelse og kompleksitet, som nødvendiggør, at der knyttes et team til sagen. I kraft af vor specialisering vil alle deltagere i sagsteamet være erfarne inden for litigation, ligesom de vil have erfaring med at samarbejde effektivt og målrettet.


Rets- og voldgiftssager er ikke nødvendigvis den optimale metode til at løse en konflikt, men evnen til om nødvendigt at kunne gennemføre en rets- eller voldgiftssag med succes vil ikke sjældent være en forudsætning for at opnå en acceptabel forligsmæssig løsning. Lundsgaard & Partnere sikrer, at vore klienter er — og opfattes som — kapable til om nødvendigt at gennemføre deres rets- eller voldgiftssag.


Lundsgaard & Partneres virke som en litigation boutique muliggør en dyb specialisering inden for konfliktløsning. Denne specialisering indebærer dog ikke, at vore jurister udelukkende fører rets- og voldgiftsager. Dette er nærmere beskrevet under Specialer.


Lundsgaard & Partnere påtager sig som udgangspunkt ikke forbruger- og straffesager — bortset fra white-collar crime.


Ud over litigation bistår Lundsgaard & Partnere visse pensionskasser med ejendomsinvesteringer, ligesom vi yder specialiseret rådgivning målrettet apotekersektoren.
