Detailed legal advice on construction and infrastructure contracts in Denmark

The Danish economy is one of the most competitive economies in the world. Our northern neighbour is characterised by its high level of digitalisation, stability and freedom from corruption. Denmark i st come through the corona pandemic comparatively well, now massive investments are on the agenda. The energy crisis in particular has prompted the Danish government to invest even more in the field of renewable energies, sustainability and digitalisation. To realise these projects, companies from abroad are also needed. T hese factors make the Danish economy a very interesting business location in the future.

These developments are very interesting, especially for German small and medium-sized enterprises. There is potential for cooperation with Danish companies as well as the realisation of their own construction and infrastructure projects. For this reason, construction and infrastructure contracts will be indispensable in Denmark. When drafting these contracts, you must bear in mind that German law is not readily applicable and useful. It must be regulated within the framework of these construction and infrastructure contracts which law is to apply to the contracting parties, such as:

  • German law
  • Danish law
  • International Commercial Law

This requires in-depth knowledge of German and Danish law as well as international commercial law. Our team can provide you with excellent advice in this regard. Our firm has years of experience in international commercial law and is well versed in all areas of commercial law. In particular, we have excellent knowledge in the business sector of renewable energies and energy law. Our lawyers have gained many years of professional experience at law firms specialising in energy law and regularly publish articles on the subject. Due to our diverse experience, also in the Scandinavian business environment, we can also ideally accompany your case from a local business perspective.

Law firm focus: “International Arbitration”

Careful preparation of projects and contracts cannot always prevent conflicts from arising. Here, too, we stand by your side and represent you in court or in arbitration. Before that, however, we always try to find a constructive out-of-court solution. We represent your interests vis-à-vis the other party and at the same time try to avoid a legal dispute. Should it come to that, however, we will of course represent you competently and personally before German courts. In Denmark we will also represent you before the local courts, if necessary together with experienced local partner law firms. In the field of international arbitration, we have particular experience with proceedings under international (e.g. ICC) and local arbitration rules (e.g. DIS) as well as investment disputes (ICSID).

We are a highly qualified firm of commercial lawyers specialising in conflict resolution. Comprehensive project support also includes a comprehensive conflict resolution strategy. Should legal disputes arise in a specific case, we consistently enforce our clients’ interests . One goal is to avoid going before an ordinary court (e.g. by including arbitration clauses in contracts) and to resolve the conflict within the framework of international arbitration.

Comprehensive Legal Advice on International Investment in Denmark

Through our many years of experience in Scandinavia and Europe, we have been able to build up a very good network in the Nordic business community. Our client base includes not only companies active in construction and infrastructure, but also companies in the fields of international investment and intralogistics. In these areas, comprehensive legal support is indispensable, in which we provide you with comprehensive, honest and competent advice on the legal options as well as pitfalls. In doing so, we use our in-depth knowledge of Danish law and business.


German or Danish law does not automatically apply to a cross-border contract. The parties can agree in advance on which law the contract should be based on. This can be German, Danish or international commercial law. In the case of sales contracts, for example, an international sales contract according to UN sales law can also be used . In individual cases, however, it is also possible to choose the law of a third country.
Our specialised and culturally sensitive team works in advance to avoid conflicts through solidly drafted contracts and good legal advice. We specialise in international arbitration. In doing so, it is important for us to look at the matter from all perspectives (in particular from a legal and economic perspective). Our aim is to avoid going before a court of law and to assert your interests in the most economically sensible way. Ideally, a solution acceptable to both sides will be found outside the courts. If it is not possible to avoid the conflict, we will accompany you through the dispute in the best possible way with our many years of experience, especially in international legal disputes.
We are an international business law firm with lawyers who are also very familiar with Danish business. D uring our legal advice from a single source, we have short decision-making channels , are very flexible and can avoid additional costs eiden . With us you always have the same contact person for your issues.
