According to Mergermarket, Horten is at the top of law firms in 2016 in the large cap M&A deal segment and with a deal flow of USDm 2.565 m, Horten is number four measured on value among all law firms advising on Danish transactions.

Hans Christian Pape, partner in Horten's M&A team, says: "Our efforts in the corporate market and our top ranking reflect Horten's specialisation within M&A and our focus on large and cross-border transactions. The strategy behind the successful ranking is driven by a dedicated M&A team, an understanding of the businesses and the industries and a significant influx of specialised partners and attorneys".

He adds: "It is important for us that the team advising on the specific transactions consists of strong specialists and that all have in-depth insight into the industry and the business in question".
