What the team is known for Horten is an independent firm with a broad Danish law practice, though it attracts the most praise internationally for its work in the transactional arena. The firm has a strong history of advising clients alongside international firms, and most of its international activity centres on being Danish law counsel of choice on inbound work, praised for bringing an understanding of foreign market practices when acting on Danish aspects of multi-jurisdictional projects and for international clients investing in Denmark.

Horten has a strong track record in mid-market M&A transactions with cross-border components, particularly those involving other Scandinavian countries and Germany. The financing team is also noted for its good understanding of international variations in loan agreements, and the firm acts for a number of foreign European banks on complex banking transactions. Sources also mention the firm's work on complex international disputes, particularly those concerning the financial sector.

Strengths"Working across borders requires that the person you work with is able to look beyond their own expertise. Members of the team have the ability to handle that big-picture thinking," says a client.
