Our offices are located in Copenhagen and Aarhus. More than half of our approx. 460 employees are lawyers, all possessing high-level education and the qualifications that our clients demand.
Our market position is the result of constant dedication to quality. Our constant and continuous focus on quality means that our services are customised to fit the specific situation and needs of our clients. Our experts possess value-adding insight into the relevant business sectors and provide advice based on the client’s business and strategic goals.
Gorrissen Federspiel is a fully integrated private limited partnership where all partners participate on equal terms.

Gorrissen Federspiel offers legal services within all areas of Danish and EU business law and is organised into 27 practice areas.
The advantage of organising our people into teams of highly specialised experts is that they all excel within their area and are able precisely to pinpoint our clients’ challenges.

It is our philosophy that good advice attracts good clients. Therefore, we are proud to represent some of the largest Danish and foreign business undertakings and financial institutions. Over the years, we have assisted our clients in many of the largest and most challenging M&A transactions in Denmark, and in recent years we have litigated some of the most highest profile court cases.
Our international outlook
International perspective has always been part of Gorrissen Federspiel’s DNA. One of the firm’s founders, Per Federspiel started the tradition of sending young lawyers from the firm abroad to work for a period of time. This is a tradition we still uphold today by continuously sending our attorneys, assistant attorneys and law students abroad to work or study.
We support our employees’ ambitions for further studies or working abroad, so that they return with new knowledge and experience. The majority of our work has an international perspective. Therefore, we have accumulated wide international expertise within all material areas of business law.
We have strong international relations developed through our long-standing and close cooperation with a number of the world’s leading law firms, banks, audit firms and insurance companies. Consequently we can guarantee our clients professional advice at short notice exactly where it is needed.
