Ratings

  • The Legal 500

    Skau Reipurth has been a long-term relationship to our business. During the past 10 years, we have seen a very broad number of legal issues, from drafting/reviewing contracts, negotiations, disputes, mergers, divestments and acquisitions – both national and international. All of these issues have been handled by Skau Reipurth to our utmost satisfaction. The firm’s biggest strength is that it is big enough to handle all issues (full-service) and yet small enough to maintain a direct relationship to us as a client.

  • The Legal 500

    Partner driven approach, reliable and available, clear communication and transparent fee structure.

  • The Legal 500

    Peter Skau-Andersen has for a decade been a very trusted advisor. His competent team of lawyers and partners are always ready to assist. Peter will always tell us how it is. If the issue is weak, he will try to solve it as good as possible from a commercial perspective too. He is brilliant in negotiations because he can solve the problems and maintain a positive environment.

    Very pragmatic and direct straight to the point approach.

    Peter Skau-Andersen is dedicated and always on top, delivers fast, and has a commercial touch most of the competitors lack.

    The “partner-driven” team at Skau Reipurth acts for buyers and sellers on domestic and cross-border M&A and has notable experience in incorporations and general corporate and commercial issues. M&A specialist Peter Skau-Andersen heads up the practice, which also includes commercial contracts specialist Claus Ryberg Hoffmann and Anders Hermansen.

    Skau Reipurth acts for both buyers and sellers on a national and international scale. Led by M&A expert Peter Skau-Andersen, the team is praised as “commercial-minded and skilled”. Claus Ryberg Hoffmann and Anders Hermansen are other key practitioners, handling commercial and contract law as well as compliance and legal risk management issues.

    The team has been very professional and experienced within acquisition advice. The team had a very wide range of knowledge and capabilities covering all our needs. Availability has been almost 24-7. We felt safe and well guided through the entire process.

    Of course, Peter Skau-Andersen himself stands out from the beginning by showing unique personal communication skills and convincing the entire Board of Directors of the right choice of advisory partner. Communication was in great focus throughout the entire process.

    Commercial minded and skilled lawyers.

    Attentive, professional and commercial in the approach to solving the matters at hand.

    Unique ability to “read” the customer. Always keeps deadlines.

    Highly skilled and commercial. A pleasure to work with.

    Skau, Reipurth provide a high level of relevant advice. Never trying to complicate cases, but always ensuring effective handling.

    Peter Skau and Anders Hermansen both provide legal advise on a level that I have not experienced before. Again the ability to make complicated simple and relevant is a key driver for my choice of legal help.
