  • HR law advice to private sector employers, both nationally and internationally
  • Restructuring and collective dismissal processes
  • Bonus programmes and alternative remuneration structures
  • Industrial relations – including collective bargaining and dispute resolution
  • Health and safety as well as industrial injuries

Focus areas

Discrimination and differential treatment

Discrimination is currently the fastest growing practice area

Bonus & incentives

Pay packages today are often composed of a number of elements. As a result, there is an increasing need for legal advice – both in relation to determining the different elements and addressing the many challenges and issues

Labour law

Collective agreements and industrial relations are the hallmark of the Danish labour market model

Litigation

Norrbom Vinding’s litigators are among the most skilled litigators in Denmark

Tax & social security

Labour and employment law matters should not only be regarded in a labour and employment law perspective

Contracts, dismissals, changes to terms and conditions, post-termination restrictions, etc. We advise on all aspects of employment law
