New website will make it easier for German companies to obtain legal advice in their own language.

A new website - - presents Horten's practice areas in relation to the German market. The website will make it easier for German companies which are already - or are planning to be - active on the Danish market to find lawyers at Horten who can provide in-depth legal advice in German.

All Horten's German Desk lawyers have thorough knowledge of the legal systems and languages of the two countries and in-depth understanding of the cultures and traditions of them both. This understanding is an important part of providing legal advice. It is our experience that many misunderstandings are due to a lack of insight into the cultural differences between the two countries, language barriers and different approaches on how to navigate commercially and legally.

At Horten, we have many years' experience advising both Danish and German companies in connection with their activities in the neighbouring country. In September 2014, we strengthened our German Desk further with the admission of partner Frans Rossen, who is a Danish and German lawyer. Today, Horten is among the leading law firms in Denmark in relation to the German market, and the new German website is part of the efforts to maintain this strong position.

The website will be extended with background articles and an FAQ with answers to the legal questions often facing our German Desk lawyers in their contact with German companies.
