The international, prestigious law firm rating agency ‘the Legal 500’ has just published this year’s rankings, and they recommend Lund Elmer Sandager in seven categories, among which we are particularly delighted to see that our GDPR department has entered the rankings in Tier 2.

This year, Lund Elmer Sandager is proud to be acknowledged by the Legal 500 who has ranked our GDPR practice in the new category “Data Privacy and Data Protection” as a Tier 2 firm. This acknowledgement is granted on basis of several large GDPR projects for both Danish and international clients. Torsten Hylleberg is personally recommended in the category and praised for his interpretation and implementation of the new data privacy regulations.

Client testimonials about Torsten’s work include “Torsten is a very ‘hands-on guy´ and we surely appreciated working with him” and “Torsten Hylleberg is very knowledgeable about GDPR issues”.

Again this year, our insolvency department ranks proudly in Tier 2 where Christian B. Elmer  is personally recommended. Clients describe the insolvency team as “A solid and experienced team that are easy to talk to and corporate with, pragmatic and good at finding solutions”.

‘Corporate, Commercial and M&A’ ranks in Tier 3 where Jacob Roesen and Nicolai Fløe Jørgensen are personally recommended. The team is praised for its expertise within company reorganisations, commercial contracts, deal structures and shareholder agreements in multiple sectors.

Jacob Roesen is especially highlighted by clients for his top quality legal work with comments such as “For me, working with Jacob Roesen has been a delight. He is a highly skilled and forward-thinking lawyer. He brings star quality to the M&A team of Lund Elmer Sandager” and “Generally, Jacob Roesen is personally much more involved in matters than the average M&A partner in a big law firm. I have worked with larger, top-tier law firms, but I find that the quality of Jacob Roesen’s work is superior to the top-tier firms that I have worked with. He is one of the absolute best lawyers I have ever worked with. He is very responsive and always on top of every issue. He makes complex matters seem easy to handle. Jacob Roesen has a great eye for details but still works with an extremely fast response time. Every time I contact him he gets back to me immediately

Once again, our IT department, headed by Claus Spangenberg and Torsten Hylleberg, is recommended in Tier 3 for their high level of experience in IT outsourcing, drafting a negotiation of IT contracts, system development and delivery processes etc. Claus Spangenberg is highlighted as an IT dispute resolution expert.   

Three departments are recommended in Tier 4, respectively Dispute Resolution, Employment and Real Estate. Especially Morten Schwartz Nielsen is highlighted as a leading individual within dispute resolution, and clients say among other things about his work: “I have used Lund Elmer Sandager as external lawyers for our business in Denmark for the past two years. I have found them to be professional in advising businesses based outside Denmark on Denmark legislation and the court system in Denmark. They are extremely professional and provide advice as a client would expect it (understandable and pragmatic). The added complication of language barriers is no problem for Lund Elmer Sandager or their understanding of how English lawyers would like to receive their advice. I thoroughly recommend them having used multiple Danish firms.” and “Morten Schwartz Nielsen is a knowledgeable litigator that has been heavily involved in high profile litigation for international businesses.”

Within the Employment Law category, the team, and especially Michael Møller Nielsen, is praised for their expertise within employee reorganisation issues and drafting and negotiating collective bargaining agreements. Clients also appreciate their ability to quickly and accurately understand problems and challenges. One client highlights: “Excellent at creating a trusting relationship. Excellent at asking us the right questions and finding answers to complex problems. Sharp in legal judgments and rhetoric. Good for making the legal language and content understandable to the layman”.  

All things considered, Lund Elmer Sandager is very proud and satisfied with the ranking achievements which harmonises with the office's activities in the past year. Read more of the great releases about Lund Elmer Sandager on Legal 500's website.
