K2 item: Kristian Strandberg Ivanov Dreyer

Kristian Dreyer has worked in the real estate business and it has therefore been natural for us to specialise in estate agency law. We are one of the only firms in Denmark specialising in this field.

We litigate cases before complaints boards, disciplinary boards and the ordinary courts for real estate agents, businesses and private individuals. We also assist estate agency chains and businesses in arbitration cases.

We assist estate agency chains and individual estate agency businesses in connection with the establishment, operation and discontinuation of estate agency business, preparation of professional standards, development and control of procedures, updating of purchase agreements and special terms therein, advisory services on franchises, employment law issues and purchase and sale of estate agency businesses.

We have written “Ejendomsmæglerloven med kommentarer”, which is a legal commentary on the Act on Provision of Estate Agency, etc. (Ejendomsmæglerloven), which entered into force on 1 January 2015. The book is part of the curriculum for the subject “purchase and sale of real property” in the law masters programme at the University of Copenhagen.

We also regularly write articles on the latest board practices in the trade paper for the Danish Association of Chartered Estate Agents (Dansk Ejendomsmæglerforening).

We teach members of the Danish Association of Chartered Estate Agents and the National Organisation of Estate Agents (Ejendomsmæglernes Landsorganisation). We also teach a large number of the Danish banks and mortgage credit institutions through the Danish Securities Dealers Association (Finanssektorens Uddannelsescenter), which is an association owned by the finance sector.

Since 2014, we have had a ranking on The Legal 500’s list of the best law firms in Denmark. This ranking includes the fields of real estate and construction. The Legal 500 is the most prominent legal work of reference in the world. The Legal 500 is independent and based on annual interviews with clients and players within the relevant areas as well as their assessment of our work in the past year.
