The international directory IFLR1000 recently published its Financial and Corporate Rankings for 2017. These rankings were good news for Horten, as we have increased the number of partners ranked as Leading Lawyers within their legal areas of expertise.

Two new Leading Lawyers and one new Rising Star

Partner Jacob Kornerup was added to the list of Leading Lawyers within M&A & Capital Markets, and partner Ulrik Holsted-Sandgreen was added within Restructuring & Insolvency.

Further, Thomas Francis Beckett was titled a Rising Star within M&A.

Again this year, the following partners appear as Leading Lawyers: Claus Bennetsen within Banking, PPP/PFI, Lise Lotte Hjerrild and Hans Christian Pape within M&A & Capital Markets and Piya Mukherjee within Restructuring & Insolvency. Also partner Henning Aasmul-Olsen, who joined Horten in September 2016, is ranked as Leading Lawyer within Capital Markets and M&A.
