Businesses are on their toes. As the world changes around us, regulations must follow. The technological transformation is moving at the speed of light, and a hyperconnected reality makes new agendas arise so fast, there’s little time to understand one before the next shows up. As strategic and legal advisors we need to be curious, exploring new areas without always knowing where it will take us. Yes, you heard this from a law firm.

We help leading organizations stay responsive within areas like banking and finance, real estate, green energy, tech, IP, and M&A, so they can make informed and confident decisions – sometimes even bold moves.

When the world changes, so do regulations.
Horten – Find a way.

  • Office

    Horten has offices in Hellerup, Aarhus and Herning.

    The head office in Hellerup is a modern and inspiring building designed by architects 3XN in 2009 with the future challenges for an ambitious law firm in mind and with a layout that supports new forms of cooperation.

    There are offices making room for tranquillity and concentration, while the common areas of the building are designed to house spontaneous meetings. The offices are placed around large open spaces instead of a corridor system, and the common areas are inspired by Italian market places where people are naturally brought together to discuss. The objective is to create the best setting for the sharing of knowledge and cooperation.

    Sustainability is central to Horten's office building. The building's energy consumption is 10 % below the energy requirements prevailing at the time of construction, and this is due to the special architecture of the building which contributes to reducing the energy used on cooling. All windows face north, thereby minimising direct sunlight in the offices and the need for cooling. The north-facing windows also contribute to improving the working light.

    The building is equipped with various energy-efficient solutions such as regulation of ventilation, heat, cooling, lighting via motion sensors, LED lighting and auto power-off.

    The canteen has a small vegetable garden on the roof terrace which supplies vegetables and herbs for the kitchen and has a beehive with own honey production.

    The office is Aarhus is located in one of the most central squares, Frederiks Plads, which is surrounded by a mix of residential buildings and offices designed by architects C.F. Møller. The office building has been awarded the sustainability certificate DGNB Gold, which involves requirements for the quality of material and their low environmental impact, reduced expenses for heat and maintenance for the lessees and an improved indoor climate and reduced noise limits to the benefit of the quality of life.
