New ratings from legal 500

The international legal reference book Legal 500 has provided its annual ratings to the Danish law firms within 17 legal areas of expertise. Once again, Horten obtained the best rating within Energy & Environment - a so-called Tier 1 rating. Within Insurance, Horten advanced from a Tier 3 to a Tier 2 rating.

Horten is recommenced within all legal areas of expertise, and many of our partners are emphasised as "leading individuals" within their areas of expertise. Klavs Gravesen is emphasised as a leading individual within Energy, Poul Hvilsted within Environment, Nina Henningsen within Media & Entertainment and Ole Damsbo within Intellectual Property Rights.

Within insurance, where we have advanced to a Tier 2 rating this year, Legal 500 states:

"Horten consistently delivers top-class, business-oriented advice. Practice group head Jacob Møller Dirksen, who is one of the most promising lawyers of his generation, is representing the Bresling bankruptcy estate in a DKK100m multi-party professional liability dispute. Dirksen and Nicolai Horten represent longstanding client Chubb Insurance, and Finn Schwarz is representing Scanbech in bankruptcy in a $4m D&O liability case. International expert Niels Schiersing is a reinsurance specialist. Litigator Poul Hvilsted is also recommended."
