Peter Kallermann

Kallermann Revision A/S was established in 2001.

The partners in the company, and many of the employees, have a background in the four large international auditing companies. There we learned the importance of quality, professional competence and discipline.

Added to this comes our customer-oriented service concept, which provides us with close contact to our customers and a sincere interest in the customer’s business and financial situation.

The combination of our professional background and the enthusiasm of our highly-skilled employees has enabled us to create an auditing and consultancy business of which we are proud.

We are known for having a high professional standard. We are continually seeking to enhance the quality of our services through additional education and improvement of our work procedures in order to meet our quality targets.

Externally, we keep our skills up to date by giving and attending talks, teaching and publishing articles.
It goes without saying, that we are included in the Quality Assurance Review carried out by the Danish Supervisory Authority on Auditing, just as we are members of the Institute of State Authorized Public Accountants in Denmark.

We believe that long-term relationships are the foundation of good cooperation.

Therefore, we wish for long-term relations both with our clients and our employees. We believe that an effective cooperation requires shared knowledge, which can be acquired only through relations spanning several years.

No client should ever be in doubt about our commitment and desire to deliver good service.

Being responsible towards clients, colleagues and external partners is an integrated part of our everyday, and we also seek to take our share of social responsibility.

Helle Mørch Sørensen

Family law comprises everything from marriage contracts and wills to divorce and division of property. Unfortunately, many people only realize the legal challenges that we are facing in everyday life, when it is too late. It becomes more and more complex to control “an ordinary life” and make sense in everything. It is therefore important for you to secure your future in the best possible way – also in legal terms.

HjulmandKaptain has established a specialist team of lawyers with dedication for and true specialist knowledge of this particular field of the law. We are aware that all cases are different and will treat your case with the due care and significance required by any case of personal character. We attach importance to an individual and qualified counselling at all times.

Our counselling may e.g. concern the following areas:

  • Drawing up of wills, including examination of circumstances pertaining to inheritance and financial affairs and discussion as to whether the inheritance should be separate property for the heirs. Our minimum fees for drawing up a will are DKK 3,500, ex. VAT.
  • Wills appointing a testamentary guardian for a child.
  • Marriage contracts. We advise on the conclusion of marriage contracts, both antenuptial and postnuptial contracts. Marriage contracts may be an instrument for securing a business, a real property or otherwise in case of divorce. Marriage contracts are often drawn up in conjunction with wills. Our minimum fees for drawing up a marriage contract are DKK 2,500, ex. VAT.
  • Conditions for divorce and legal separation and division of community property. A legal separation or a divorce is a difficult situation. It is therefore important that the process is handled smoothly, especially if there are children involved. Cooperation with an understanding divorce lawyer is a good start to a difficult situation.
  • Custody, residence and contact. You must agree on where your children should live. If you fail to agree, legal advice may be a good idea for the purpose of attending to your interests.
  • Maintenance and child support. The party accorded most time with the children is entitled to child support from the other party.
  • Counselling on unmarried couples’ legal relations, including the drafting of cohabitation contracts. Our counselling also comprises matters concerning the law of wills and succession, including the drawing up of wills to secure the parties’ succession right, and insurance issues, including joint life insurance.
  • Family checks, free of charge. Critical or acute situations are mostly attended to, whereas many people often forget about or put aside the more general and common dilemmas. Owing to our many years of experience in family law, we have therefore experienced that most of us may benefit a lot from having your family’s legal situation evaluated by means of a family check, free of charge.
  • Loans between family members.
  • Inheritance and property division. We attend to the heirs’ interests in connection with estate administration.
  • Compulsory displacement.
