At Molt Wengel we use contracts to create custom-made, value-adding solutions. We combine legal expertise with hands-on experience and have Denmark's largest team of construction law specialists.
We can handle all matters including arbitration, tenders, contracts, disputes with advisors or contractors, alternative dispute resolution or cooperative contracting.
We aim for effective solutions rather than legal deadlocks. We are transparent and work hard to understand your organisation and strategic goals. We know close cooperation is key to obtaining excellent results.
When you work with Molt Wengel, you experience a dedicated and engaged strategic advisory team that does not compromise in terms of quality of advice or results achieved.
When you work with large or complex construction, legal advice is of paramount importance. It is vital for scheduling, budgeting and the result of the project at large to take action from the beginning. It’s equally important to make the right decisions before the conceptual design, continuing throughout the project until completion.
Involving Molt Wengel from an early stage will create the best possible conditions for collaboration, handling risks, reducing waste and risk of conflicts. We are strategic advisors who assist you on daily basis. We take a holistic approach to your requirements regarding both current matters and future needs.
