Overview

Horten has a large and experienced employment and labour law team. Our expertise includes all areas within both individual agreements and collective agreements, and we have significant experience as litigators. We are known to be 'the best when it comes to collective agreements' in relation to negotiations with unions and in connection with acquisitions, where buyers are seeking advice on the possibilites of operating within collective agreements.

We are aknowledged for our approach as regards cases concerning executive liability. We have in the last year experienced a lot of activity related to change of CEOs in several high-profile companies in Denmark and we have represented several CEOs and executives in relation to termination procedures and summary dismissal.

We understand the various aspects of employment law and base our legal advice on a commercial, strategic and long-term perspective. We advise on all levels of the organisation and tailor our advice to the specific situation.

Employment and labour law affects all areas of both the business community and the public sector. We have therefore established thorough knowledge of a large number of business sectors and industries.

Our experts have written numerous books on a wide variety of employment law issues.
