A partner from an international law firm states that Moalem Weitemeyer Bendtsen delivers on the same level as the firms listed in tier 1: "I find they have the resources to do the work at the highest level”. One client echoes this assessment and comments on the breadth of the firm’s bench: "I think the juniors [associates] are of a high standard; the material we got always was of a very high standard."

According to IFLR1000, one senior banking client singles out Dan Moalem: "He's a very, very talented lawyer from a theoretical point of view and fortunately he is not the most by-the-book lawyer and is very pragmatic in trying to find solutions where it could be very easy to find problems.”

IFLR1000 ranks our Banking & Financing team as a top 7 law firm. Both practice head David Moalem and his team receive client praise: "They have one of the top capital markets teams around and that's because they have David; he's absolutely one of the best,” one banking client is quoted of saying to IFLR1000. Another client praises David Moalem and is quoted for saying: "In that area [capital markets] he is really one of the experts in Denmark; very competent and easy to work with."

The restructuring and insolvency team at Moalem Weitemeyer Bendtsen led by partner Thomas Weitemeyer is recognized for its involvement in a number of large transactions this year, including representing the buyers of more than a billion kroner's worth of property from real estate group Essex and acting as the trustee in the multijurisdictional bankruptcy of Datoselskabet af 28/2 2011 (formerly Danish Hardwood).

Commenting on the IFLR1000 2014 rankings, managing partner Dan Moalem states: “We consider IFLR1000 one of the three most influential and well-researched law firm guides. Being recognized as a top 4 M&A law firm and a top 7 Banking & Financing law firm by peers and clients only 5 years after we incorporated Moalem Weitemeyer Bendtsen makes us proud, humble and very determined.” Moalem Weitemeyer Bendtsen’s chairman Thomas Weitemeyer adds: “Looking ahead, we are particularly pleased by the fact that our clients make the effort of highlighting the quality of our associates.
