Bjørnholm Law is boutique firm focusing solely on tax controversy – from the first audit until final judgement by the Supreme Court and international tax advisory matters. Bjørnholm Law's active matters are based on high end tax controversy for predominantly listed clients which the partners have been involved in for years.

However, Bjørnholm Law has already – its short existence considering – been able to secure new prominent clients and matters chiefly on account of the outstanding track record.

Nikolaj is known and recognized throughout the Danish tax community for his skills as a litigator and advisor. He has been admitted to the Supreme Court since 2000 and appears there regularly. Bodil is similarly a recognized litigator known for her clear strategic approach and ability to foresee potential pitfalls in a case.

The partners work collectively on all the firm's cases as their individual strengths combined has proved successful in complicated high profile cases since 2005. Nikolaj and Bodil has thus for the past 12 years developed a significant tax litigation practice taking market shares from other prominent firms.

In the past year, the firm has been appointed tax advisor in a number of new transfer pricing cases, of which three cases have undergone ADR (Alternative Dispute Resolution) making Bjørnholm Law the most experienced firm in Denmark in respect of this new and interesting instrument.
