Foreign Direct Investments

We assist Danish and international clients in all matters of foreign direct investments (FDI).

FDI rules are national rules that apply exclusively to foreign investments, and the screening of these investments is focused primarily on protecting the national security of the state in which the investment is to be made.


More and more jurisdictions are introducing or expanding their authority to investigate and control the influence of certain FDIs. General FDI rules are expected to be introduced shortly in Denmark.


This development provides for an ever more complex regulatory environment surrounding cross-border M&A and other transactions. 


Successful navigation through this complex regulatory environment requires the most experienced advisors with a global outreach.
