Experience and expertise within insurance and tort law

Horten advises on all aspects of Danish insurance and tort law, both in connection with underwriting, claims and regulatory issues. Further, we advise companies on risk management and insurance as well as on matters concerning liability and damages. We have wide experience conducting litigation and arbitration within damages and insurance. 

Our clients

We have wide experience advising foreign insurance companies, insurance brokers and companies in many different industries. We provide assistance in relation to risk coverage, claims handling and regulatory affairs. Throughout many years, our specialists have gained considerable knowledge about Danish insurance conditions and the Danish insurance sector; we therefore know to which areas foreign players' attention should be drawn.

We also advise foreign individuals (board members, executives, attorneys and other advisers), typically on cases relating to personal liability under Danish law.
