Code of Conduct

All Danish lawyers are subject to the legal ethics rules contained in the Danish Admini-stration of Justice Act (retsplejeloven). The General Council of the Danish Bar and Law Society supervises compliance with the code of legal ethics and has drawn up a Code of Conduct requiring lawyers to comply with high professional and ethical standards.

The Disciplinary Board of the Danish Bar and Law Society ensures compliance with the rules and may impose disciplinary sanctions in case of violation.

The ethical professional conduct rules include:

  • Non-disclosure obligations: Lawyers and their employees are required to treat information received in the course of their work confidentially. 
  • Conflicts of interest rules: Circumstances of conflicting interests in which a lawyer may not assist a client.

More information about the Code of Conduct and the General Council is available on the Danish Bar and Law Society's website. More information about ethical professional conduct, rights to complain, etc. is available on the Disciplinary Board's website.

Prohibition against insider dealing

All Kromann Reumert staff are subject to internal rules that satisfy the requirements of the Danish Securities Trading Act (lov om værdipapirhandel) on prohibition against disclosure of insider information regarding listed companies and on restrictions on trading in listed securities.

Preventive anti-money laundering measures

Kromann Reumert is also subject to the Danish Act containing anti-money laundering and anti-terrorism financing measures (lov om forebyggende foranstaltninger mod hvidvaskning af penge og finansiering af terrorisme). Under the Act, Kromann Reumert is required to obtain and keep client identification records for five years. Clients are required to provide their name, address and civil registration (CPR) number or Central Business Register (CVR) number when a new matter is opened and also, where necessary, documentation. Businesses also have to provide ownership information and documentation.

Under the anti-money laundering and anti-terrorism financing measures Act, Kromann Reumert is required to investigate transactions where there is suspicion of money laundering or financing of terrorism. Kromann Reumert may also be obliged to notify the Public Prosecutor for Serious Economic Crime or the Danish Bar and Law Society.

kromann reumert's responsibility

Kromann Reumert uses considerable resources to ensure high ethical standards in our work. We take an active approach meeting our special responsibility as lawyers – without compromising our general ethical and social responsibility and our responsibility as a commercial enterprise.

When cooperating with auditors, banks and others to provide services to clients, we make sure that our cooperative partners also meet the strict requirements regarding conflicts of interest.

As part of our general quality management, we have adopted a number of internal procedures and rules supplementing the Code of Conduct, the Danish Securities Trading Act, and the Danish Act on anti-money laundering and anti-terrorism financing measures.

Kromann Reumert's Ethics Committee administers the rules and each lawyer is obligated to comply with them. The Ethics Committee must be consulted in all matters of doubt and will on its own initiative take up issues of concern.

The Committee also serves as Kromann Reumert's internal supervisory body in respect of the Code of Conduct and our internal procedures and rules. The Ethics Committee consists of five partners and is authorised to decide that Kromann Reumert cannot take on a client or a case, to set the terms governing representation of clients, and to decide that Kromann Reumert must withdraw from a case.
