LIND provides specialised advisory services within labour and employment law. We conduct a large number of cases before both ordinary courts and specialised arbitration courts.
LIND’s expertise includes:
LIND is advising and represents our clients in any stage of the M&A process; both national as well as cross-border M&As: From the first strategic considerations through the planning and the determination of the transaction structure and the implementation of due diligence surveys, negotiation and preparation of contract terms to the completion of the transaction and follow-up on the agreed obligations. It is our aim to ensure the optimum result for our clients through proactive, cost-effective and value-adding advice.
LIND has substantial experience from indemnification cases and has therefore built up valuable specialist knowledge in this field. We conduct many different legal cases in this area and – especially in the field of personal injury compensation – we regularly conduct cases on matters of principle before the Danish Supreme Court.
LIND’s expertise includes personal injury compensation in a broad sense, including:
We also have considerable insight into related fields of law, including insurance law and occupational health and safety law. We can therefore contribute to comprehensive resolution of all issues arising from possible liable actions or omissions.
LIND provides highly specialised advisory services in all areas related to real estate.
Landlord and tenant law – in particular commercial lease law – is an area in which we have built up considerable expertise, enabling us to offer clients extremely qualified assistance, both in the advisory phase and in the conduct of litigation.
In view of our longstanding knowledge of the market situation and the real estate market, we attach great importance to our advice not only covering legal, but also commercial matters.
LIND has considerable experience from handling estates in bankruptcy and represents many clients in connection with bankruptcy issues, including employees, banks and suppliers.
We continuously have around 100 estates in bankruptcy under administration, including estates of considerable complexity and within virtually all sectors.
We have the capacity that is needed in the hectic stages that inevitably arise when a company faces financial difficulties. We know that it is necessary to draw on knowledge of other legal areas, such as company law, labour law and financing law. The vital parameter for us is to achieve the best result for the company and its creditors, and to limit the loss of jobs.
LIND’S objective is to achieve the fastest possible administration of a bankrupt estate, with the best possible outcome for creditors and mortgagees, without compromising on the quality of the work.
During the bankruptcy proceedings we pay great attention to the possibility of imposing bankruptcy quarantine on the management, if the circumstances make this advisable.
LIND therefore assists with the following, among other things:
LIND has considerable litigation experience. Our litigation specialists conduct a large number of legal and arbitration cases. We regularly conduct cases before the Danish Supreme Court.
LIND’s expertise within legal and arbitration cases means that we can also advise clients on procedural risks, both prior to and during the course of a dispute. This enables us to offer constructive advice in order to achieve the solution that overall best serves the client’s interests.
With regard to contract negotiations, our experience from legal and arbitration cases gives us the opportunity to provide proactive advice, so as to minimise the risk of a dispute at a later stage.
Several of LIND’s attorneys are regularly appointed as arbitrators.
General corporate and commercial law is one of LIND’s core areas. We advise on every aspect of corporate and commercial law issues, including negotiation and preparation of commercial contracts, establishment of companies, capital structure, restructuring (including demergers and mergers), board services, corporate governance and compliance. LIND also advises on any kinds of partnerships, including joint ventures and various kinds of consortiums. LIND’s attorneys are often appointed as chairmen of general meetings and as board members
As a service to our trade union clients, LIND Advokataktieselskab offers early warning of indications of employers facing payment difficulties of which we become aware of in our handling of cases concerning attachment of salaries.

Under the scheme, at regular intervals, normally every 14 days, we issue a current overview of the salary attachment cases, etc. for which there is reason to believe that the employer is facing payment difficulties.
