Norrbom Vinding’s litigators are among the most skilled litigators in Denmark
Norrbom Vinding is unrivalled in its position as the law firm in Denmark which most often represents employers and management in the national courts on labour and employment-related issues.
We often argue our clients' cases several times each week before the Danish Labour Court, civil courts, public servants courts, industrial tribunals, dismissals tribunals, etc.
We are seeing an increasing interest in our qualifications and experience related to conducting cases before the ordinary courts and arbitration tribunals. Even though our core competence is labour and employment law, we also focus on developing our litigation capabilities to cover other areas than just labour and employment law. For example, court cases and arbitration proceedings often require a high level of knowledge on procedural as well as arbitration law and practice – and we also use such knowledge and capabilities in other areas than labour and employment law.
