PUBLIC LEGAL ASSISTANCE AND LEGAL ASSISTANCE THAT IS COVERED BY INSURANCE

THE RULES ON ETHICS FOR ATTORNEYS-AT-LAW
All Danish Attorneys-at-Law are subject to the Administration of Justice Act’s rules on good practice for Attorneys-at-Law.

The Disciplinary Board of the Danish Bar and Law Society ensures compliance with good practice for Attorneys-at-Law and may impose sanctions if the rules are infringed.
MEASURES TO PREVENT LAUNDERING
