    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.

    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.
