Lundgaard & Partnere

 

Lundsgaard & Partnere is a litigation boutique specialising in litigation and arbitration proceedings. We are involved in the largest and most important litigations in Denmark and conduct cases at all levels of the judicial system, including the Supreme Court. We specialise in conducting commercial cases of high complexity and often of great financial or general public importance.


Lundsgaard & Partnere's function as a litigation boutique is a unique characteristic of the company. No other law firm in Denmark has a similar profile or strategy. Lundsgaard & Partnere distinguishes from litigation departments in large law firms targeting many other needs and considerations than the concerns that imply successful dispute resolution. All lawyers at Lundsgaard & Partnere specialise and have experience in litigation, which cannot be obtained in small and medium-sized law firms that are not specialised in litigation.


Our clients are professional users of legal services within litigation. We establish a strategy for the handling of the case, regardless of the stage at which we are engaged to conduct it. This strategy includes a risk analysis, as well as analysing alternatives to court proceedings, i.e. possibilities of settlement, mediation, and other options related to dispute resolution. We assess the financial complications of initiating a lawsuit in relation to alternative solutions. We continuously adjust the strategy during the proceedings, just as we carefully adjust the resources to the case.


The case often has a size and complexity, which necessitates a team being assigned to it. In light of our specialisation, all team members will be experienced in litigation and be experienced in effective and goal-oriented cooperation.


Neither litigation nor arbitration is necessarily the optimal dispute resolution, but the ability to successfully conduct litigation and arbitration cases, if necessary, will frequently be a prerequisite in order to achieve an acceptable settlement solution. We ensure that Lundsgaard & Partnere's clients are, and are being perceived as, "capable" in order to enforce their rights if necessary.


Lundsgaard & Partnere's specialisation in litigation enables a deeper specialisation in dispute resolution. The function as a litigation boutique does not entail that the firm's lawyers are solely involved in litigation and arbitration cases. This is further elaborated on in detail under "Practice Areas".


In general, we do not take on consumer and criminal cases — except white-collar crime.


In addition to litigation, Lundsgaard & Partnere assists certain pension funds with real estate investments and provides specialised counseling targeted the pharmacy sector.


We do not disclose the name of our clients or litigations that we conduct for our clients, no matter how beneficial a result our clients may obtain.
