The international consulting and auditing company Rödl & Partner has concluded a partnership with LEAD Denmark, one of the leading medium-sized law firms in Denmark. As of January 2017, Rödl & Partner will be represented under its own name in the Danish capital Copenhagen. The consulting and auditing company will thus be represented by 107 subsidiaries in 50 countries worldwide.

From January 2017, the law firm is renamed "LEAD, Rödl & Partner". The focus is on supporting investments and transactions, particularly in the area of ​​foreign direct investments. Rödl & Partner thus complements its wide range of services in the region, which already includes legal and tax consulting, auditing and business process outsourcing. The experienced partners Alexandra Huber and Christian Schwarz-Hansen have previously worked in several leading Danish law firms. Alexandra Huber, a native of Austria, studied law in Graz and Washington, D.C and is specialized in M​​&A transactions. Christian Schwarz-Hansen, a Danish lawyer, offers bilingual advice (Danish-German) and focuses on real estate and financing.

"This strategic development is an excellent addition to our existing business around the Baltic Sea," said Prof. Dr. Christian Rödl, CEO of Rödl & Partner. "We have been operating in the Nordic countries since 1993 and have recently made great strides in expanding our presence in Finland." With LEAD, Rödl & Partner in Denmark, we are continuing our international interdisciplinary expansion. "

Copenhagen is part of the economically important Öresund region with ​​almost 4 million inhabitants. It is growing and is one of the strongest economic centers in the EU. "The Öresund region is the bridge of the big German companies to the Northern European countries," added Jens Pastille, the partner responsible for Northern Europe. "At the same time, Germany is the most important trading and economic partner in the region."

In view of above-average growth, the Nordic European neighbors have been regarded as the most economically stable region in Europe for many years. Large investment needs in the sectors of public infrastructure, real estate, logistics and energy also ensure high growth dynamics for the coming years.
