Introduction and Disclaimer


Denmark is often considered an easy and attractive place in Europe to set up a company and to do business. This is in no small part due to the country’s constant political and cultural situation as well as the relatively simple and predictable legal situation. As a foreign business or investor about to do business in Denmark, there are however still a number of fundamental legal rules and principles to take into account.


This guide provides a general introduction to certain legal issues which we believe are relevant to know based on our experience with international companies contemplating doing business in Denmark. This guide is not an exhaustive list of all the requirements that might apply to international companies and it is not a substitute for legal advice. We recommend that international companies that contemplate doing business in Denmark seek legal advice tailored to the specific business and industry in order to be successful in their business ventures in Denmark.
