Moalem Weitemeyer Bendtsen recently received award number 13 in 2018 alone for their work within M&A. According to the firm’s managing partner, this is a result of having an international perspective combined with hard work.


The market for M&A in the Danish legal industry is powering ahead, and while the country’s major law firms are preparing to fight for clients and are hiring new employees in great numbers, one smaller Danish law firm has in earnest consolidated its position as a sought-after advisor on the M&A market.


With just 48 employees, Moalem Weitemeyer Bendtsen has just received its 13th international award in 2018 alone, this time as M&A Law Firm of the Year 2018 by Global Law Experts. An award which, in managing partner Thomas Weitemeyer’s eyes, is a big pat on the back for the firm’s employees.


“Winning these awards is clearly a big pat on the back, because it means that clients and business partners around the globe has nominated us,” he says.


Grow Slow Policy

While many of the larger law firms have taken the lead when it comes to size and assignments, Moalem Weitemeyer Bendtsen has a firm grip on the M&A market, having taken on several major assignments within recent years, Thomas Weitemeyer says.


“The fact that we have just received our 13th award comes down, I believe, to hard work. We simply deliver, and we are being credited for it. For instance, in 2017 we assisted in the sale of DONG Oil and Gas and in the sale of Saxo Bank, plus we had the merger with Tryg and Alka in which we represented Tryghedsgruppen, and also the delisting of Nets. And we recently completed the sale of Louis Poulsen.”


It is not a coincidence that the firm does not particularly act on the offensive when it comes to celebrating its deals in the media and social media.

“We are not very public in relation to our deals and our clients. We simply do what we do best. We even have an official grow slow policy – we do not wish to be the biggest, but we want to be the best at what we do,” says Thomas Weitemeyer.
