Horten is specialised within sectors characterised by strict regulation or where technological development and innovative approaches are fundamental — such as energy and supply, life science and healthcare, IT, technology and media as well as the public sector. The firm uses its special expertise within regulated areas proactively to solve complex problems and think innovatively, be it in new energy forms or advanced technology.

Sectors:

Real Estate, energy and utilities, finance and pension, insurance and liability, IT and telecoms, life science and healthcare, media and entertainment and public law. Energy & Supply:

The energy and supply sector affects many practice areas and business sectors. To meet utilities’, municipalities’ and supply utilities’ comprehensive need for advice, Horten’s energy team consists of attorneys with in-depth expertise from both the private and the public sector. This means that the firm understands its clients’ business and the conditions on which companies operate on the market. This also means that Horten uses its expertise to ensure clients valuable solutions in an increasingly competitive sector. Technology, Media & Entertainment:

As a full-service law firm, Horten covers all legal disciplines, but we possess a special force within the interface between media, technology and intellectual property rights. The firm represents large global technology and media companies, including large IT companies and leading providers of radio, TV and online games, within a wide range of areas. Insurance & Liability:

Horten knows the business and its terms, and it provides top-level advice both in connection with transactions, transfers of portfolios, regulatory affairs, claims and disputes.

The team consists of lawyers with strong skills within tort law and insurance, and we are likely to be the law firm in Denmark conducting most legal and arbitration proceedings concerning damages and insurance. Life Science & Healthcare:

Horten’s experts have advised all players in the sector. This has given our team unique insight into the industry, making us capable of providing advice and sparring on all commercial and legal aspects. Many of the team’s attorneys have worked ‘in-house’ supplementing the firm’s advice with a special edge — they know the ‘key value drivers’ of the sector. The team has in-depth and valuable knowledge of the commercial reality facing the sector players. Public Law:

The increasing professionalism of the public and semi-public sector makes heavy demands on the sector’s cooperation partners, including the advisers. For many years, Horten has focused on and been one of the leading Danish law firms advising within this sector.

The firm has in-depth knowledge of the public and semi-public sector, and we understand the requirements to which the sector is subject. Many of the firm’s public law experts have worked in central government, municipalities and other politically managed organisations, thus ensuring a basic understanding of the work in politically managed organisations. Real Estate:

Horten has wide experience in purchase/sale of real estate, construction and development projects, public construction projects, leases, financing of real estate projects and transactions and energy optimisation, climate adaptation and environmental issues.

When initiating consulting cooperation, we will always look at the company as a whole. The firm bases its advice on commercial understanding of client’s business to optimise the bottom line together. The firm offers an aggregate forward-looking solution covering all legal aspects of the client’s business. The firm’s advice is based on the client’s problem and involves all legal competencies required by the solution. This may be tax matters, environmental planning, financing and regulatory affairs. The firm also contributes considerable experience from a large number of international cases. This implies that its clients obtain access to local knowledge, which is often essential for success. Finance & Pension:

Within the finance and pension sector, Horten’s work is based on a wide range of experts who can assist e.g. pension companies with investments in alternative investment structures or granting of loans to project finance, offering restructuring competencies in case the risks associated.
