Skau Reipurth & Partnere acts for employers and employees, as well as labour unions. ‘Superb’ group head Frederik Brocks has been representing Pharmadanmark in a dispute regarding the union’s collective agreement with the Danish Pharmaceutical Association.

‘Competent’ and ‘pragmatic’ Skau Reipurth & Partnere primarily handles disputes over the interpretation of collective bargaining agreements and terminations. Frederik Brocks specialises in cross-border employment relationships. The team was bolstered by the arrival of Bo Enevold Uhrenfeldt from Bech-Bruun.

Skau Reipurth & Partnere is ‘very quick to respond’, ‘always available’ and ‘provides appropriate solutions’, and clients praise group head Frederik Brocks, who is ‘very thorough when working with cases’ and ‘sees issues that others won’t’. Brocks recently advised Itinera on the employment agreements related to its construction of two hospitals and Femern Belt Bridge, and Bo Enevold Uhrenfeldt, who is an expert in examining collective agreements and public procurement labour clauses, acted for the Danish Dental Association in an arbitration with Danish Regions concerning a collective agreement.

Great team – in my experience the only team in the Danish market that are also truly skilled in international employment law and at the same time are able to provide practical solutions for their clients on such technical matters.

Frederik Brocks provides really valuable solutions to his clients and at the same time is a master of perfection to understand all the other legal and commercial aspects that the best solution needs to take into account.
