The new partners are Asger Heine Jensen, specialist in intellectual property rights within Media & Entertainment, Frans Rossen, specialist in M&A and German legal issues and Mikkel Primdal Kæregaard, specialist in M&A. The new partners are to support the revenue growth which Horten is experiencing in these years despite a weak market within the legal profession. The admission of Frans Rossen will further make Horten one of the leading law firms in Denmark in relation to the German market.
"The admission of Frans Rossen is first of all a further strengthening of Horten's expertise within advice to the business community and the sectors we strategically aim at. Secondly, the cooperation with Nuna Advokater is a unique opportunity in relation to Greenlandic, Danish and foreign companies within the energy sector, also because Horten is already a major player within energy and supply law. Finally, both personally and in the way they practise law, the new partners also fit in perfectly with our culture", says partner and chairman of the board Klavs V. Gravesen.
Horten is aiming strategically at advice to sectors subject to intense regulation or rapid technological development: The public sector, energy and supply, technology and media and life science and healthcare. Knowledge of these sectors is exactly what has contributed to Horten's recent growth, and the admission of the new partners will continue contributing to our growth. At the same time, Horten is strengthening its commitment on the German and Greenlandic markets.
FOCUS ON GREENLAND
Horten is engaging in cooperation with Nuna Advokater - Greenland's largest law firm. Horten thereby obtains special insight into Greenlandic issues and - combined with the company's expertise within energy law, in particular upstream energy - the cooperation is expected to be an important competitive parameter in relation to advice to international companies within oil, gas and minerals.
