We make law comprehen­sible.

We advise on German law in Danish and on Danish law in German. In this way, we cover cross-border legal transactions in all sectors and are thus much more broadly positioned than most other law firms.

With the help of a large network of contacts, we can also help you over and beyond our legal expertise. For example, we cooperate with industry associations and federations, state institutions and many other multipliers and network partners so that we can offer our clients direct and immediate added value, quickly and with no fuss.

And what can we do for you?

We advise companies and key employees in all areas of individual and collective employment law, or in the areas of conflict between Danish Funktionærlov and general Danish employment law. Furthermore, we advise managing directors on all relevant issues concerning employment relationships with particular expertise in cross-border matters between Germany and Denmark.

We advise both private developers – i.e. building clients, as well as contractors, i.e. those who plan and execute the building, in all phases of a building’s lifecycle, from development to planning, construction, financing and operation.

In our digitised world, data is the most valuable asset. We assist you with data protection-compliant planning, implementation of internal company guidelines and legally compliant processing of personal data. We pay special attention to the areas of employee privacy and data protection in e-commerce, as well as the organisation and management of data protection within the company.

The rules in the area of e-commerce are complex. Despite many uniform regulations, there are serious differences between the different legal systems of Germany and Denmark. We make this complexity comprehensible and help you to satisfy the different requirements. General terms and conditions, consumer protection, data protection and competition law are just some of the areas in which advores and its experts provide individually tailored assistance.

Do you need help with probate, would you like to draw up a will or do you need health care proxies? We can offer comprehensive advice on all aspects of German and Danish inheritance law and will be happy to handle the entire probate process for you in both countries.

Or we can answer your questions in a straightforward manner regarding claims to a compulsory portion (tvangsarv), certificate of inheritance (skifteretsattest), inheritance tax (arveskat) and voluntary succession, as well as special Danish features such as the uskiftet bo.

We can assist you with the purchase and sale of projects and project development, as well as financing, especially of wind farms, photovoltaic and biogas plants in Denmark and Germany. Whether you are active in the market as a producer, supplier or service provider, onshore or offshore, we will provide you with comprehensive support from our team of experts.

We can advise you on all kinds of corporate law issues: on the establishment and foundation of companies in Germany and Denmark, on the drafting of articles of association, on the structuring of your companies and shareholdings, as well as on issues relating to conversion law.

Tax law issues play a major role in company law structuring, which is why we work closely with tax advisors and auditors who also have extensive experience in German-Danish legal relations.

We advise our clients on commercial, distribution and supply contracts. In addition to reviewing such contracts, our work also includes negotiations for these kinds of contracts. Furthermore, we also represent our clients with regard to possible compensation and commission claims arising from commercial agency agreements.

Our lawyers have many years of experience in the purchase, sale and project development of real estate and in-depth knowledge relating to the financing of your investments in Germany and Denmark. Whether you are selling your real estate portfolio in Berlin, investing in an apartment building in Hamburg, buying a condominium in Copenhagen or a summer house in Søndervig – we know our stuff.

Advores will support you through all the stages of the debt collection process, from the first reminder letter, to instalment payment agreements, to judicial assertion of your claims, to enforcement in Denmark and Germany. We can also advise you on the question of what interest and costs you can claim, in addition to the actual debt. There are major differences between the German and Danish regulations in this respect.

As part of crisis and restructuring advice to companies, creditors and banks, we develop effective restructuring concepts, taking into account all aspects of insolvency law. In this context, banks and other creditors entrust us with the necessary negotiations. In the run-up to insolvency, our advice extends not only to answering civil and criminal law questions but also to setting up and organising crisis management in the company concerned. Together with our specialist lawyers for labour law, we develop and design reorganisation and restructuring concepts.

In the area of IP/commercial legal protection, we advise in particular on all questions of intellectual property, such as the protection of trademarks and designs. We assist our clients in the event of warnings in line with competition law and, if necessary, conduct the legal dispute.

Hardly anything embodies the cross-boarder business as much as the transport industry. We represent our clients in all matters relating to the transport of goods by water, land and air. At its core, this includes freight forwarding and freight law as well as warehousing and logistics. In addition, we assist clients in enforcing or defending against liability claims in connection with transport insurance.

We know that when buying and selling a company, cultural differences can have a particularly significant impact on success in addition to legal differences. Our team keeps a firm grip on the reins for you in all phases of a corporate transaction – not only across national borders but also across disciplines.
