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.

We have e.g.

  • successfully conducted a landmark case before the Danish Supreme Court on whether the special provisions of the Danish Anti-Discrimination Act concerning wages to under-18s are incompatible with EU law
  • successfully conducted a case before the Danish Supreme Court on pensions – more specifically, the interpretation and construction of the contractual regulation of pensions for municipal employees
  • conducted a number of cases before the Danish Board of Equal Treatment and the ordinary courts concerning dismissal of pilots due to age
  • represented Local Government Denmark and the Danish local authorities in the special complex of test cases, initially before the Danish Eastern High Court and then the Danish Supreme Court, concerning the implications of the provisions of the Danish Salaried Employees Act on termination pay
  • conducted or arbitrated a number of cases about managers and executives
  • conducted an arbitration case concerning copyrights governed by a collective agreement
