For a number of years, Moalem Weitemeyer Bendtsen's attorneys have acted as advisers in a large number of the most comprehensive and complex transactions in Denmark.
Moalem Weitemeyer Bendtsen advises on all types of corporate transactions, including private equity and venture capital transactions, as well as takeovers of public listed companies.
Moalem Weitemeyer Bendtsen's attorneys have substantial international experience. Furthermore, we have developed a comprehensive cooperation with other Danish and foreign advisers, including investment banks, auditors as well as environment and insurance advisers. We work in close cooperation with the leading M&A lawyers in other countries. We are also increasingly providing assistance to our clients in the planning and managing of acquisitions and sales of companies outside Denmark with the assistance of local law firms.
The strongest area of the firm has to be the corporate team led by managing partner Dan Moalem. "He's a very, very talented lawyer from a theoretical point of view and fortunately he is not the most by-the-book lawyer and is very pragmatic in trying to find solutions where it could be very easy to find problems," says one senior banking client about Moalem, adding that he is "at the same level as anyone else in the legal environment in Denmark for transactions". This message is echoed by others, with an international partner describing him as "very knowledgeable" and as "a true M&A lawyer". That partner says the work Moalem does stands up to likes of Kromann and Plesner and says: "I find they have the resources to do the work at the highest level; I think he's making a mark, which is impressive."
