We are a law firm with a Nordic profile and a global mindset. Our primary market covers the Nordic/Baltic region and Northern Europe, in particular Germany. NJORD has 200 employees at five offices – in Aarhus, Copenhagen, Riga, Tallinn and Vilnius.
The Nordic Region Is Our Home Turf:
NJORD works for companies and authorities in Denmark, the Nordic region and Germany, and for a number of our global clients, we function as a gateway to the entire Nordic/Baltic region. Many of them use NJORD on a continuous basis as a Nordic problem solver, and as a result, we conduct a considerable number of cases across national borders.
Major International Turnover:
In addition to Danish, Nordic, Baltic and German companies and authorities, our client portfolio also counts a large number of the world’s largest brands. Approximately half of our business comes from international groups.
The Nordic aspect is an integral part of our culture and mindset. We bring Nordic values into play, whether the job at hand is a Danish business transfer, a German property deal, or brand protection covering the entire Nordic region. NJORD is liberal-minded. We are direct, informal and flexible. Our company is characterised by low power distance and a versatile culture with more than 20 different nationalities represented among partners and other employees.
Experience From The Other Side Of The Table:
To us, it is an advantage that a number of our lawyers have extensive experience from the business life where they have been sitting “at the other side of the table” – often in some of the biggest companies – and therefore have in-depth knowledge of the factors that characterise optimum client handling.
