Norrbom Vinding is Denmark’s only boutique labour and employment law firm advising on all aspects of labour and employment law, and any other HR-related issues, and acting exclusively for the management/ employer side. The core group of Norrbom Vinding’s lawyers are among those who pioneered and developed labour and employment law as a separate discipline for private practice lawyers in Denmark in the 1980s, and the firm’s unique expertise thus builds on more than 30 years’ experience within the area.
