Jeppe Reipurth is very professional in his work.

They are very specialised within construction law and especially construction law disputes. Due to the size of their construction law practice (the number of lawyers), they have big strength in depth. The level of service and alertness is extremely high combined with strong theoretical knowledge and a pragmatic approach.

Peter Dianati is very competent and theoretically strong within the field of construction law. Hardworking, relentless and dedicated to the task at hand. Always accessible and very no-nonsense.

It is a good up and coming team of very enthusiastic lawyers.

The firm’s construction disputes team is one of the best in Denmark. In quality as well as in quantity.

Peter Dianati is exceptionally hard-working and very knowledgeable within construction disputes. I regard him as the best within this field.

They have the right size, big enough to handle everything, and small enough to be directly involved in our business. They give value-for-money advice and especially in terms of disputes, the unique thing is that they tell us directly whether or not to pursue a dispute.

Peter Skau-Andersen has been our trusted advisor for many years. He is straightforward, direct and extremely competent. He can point us to – or obtain assistance from – the various specialists but is always willing to work hard to get the best result. On several occasions, we have won a dispute due to his preparation and commercial/social negotiation and communication skills.
