This work provides the foreign reader with a broad insight into Danish law that has particular relevance to the business community. It is a substantial volume comprising twenty three chapters in all.

The book opens with an introductory chapter giving the background to the nature of Danish business law and explaining the concept of legal rule, various types of legal rule, the sources of law and some law source factors. Chapter two is devoted to the relevant factors of Danish origin, while chapter three looks at EU law and other international sources of law factors. Chapter four offers a survey of the Danish court system, embracing the organisation of courts, procedure in civil cases and court appeals. Chapter five addresses damages in tort law and the compensation arising therefrom. Insurance is the focus of chapter six, while contract law is dealt with in chapter seven.

Chapter eight covers the law relating to the sale of goods as applied to national sales, i.e. between a Danish buyer and Danish seller. International sales - those involving contracts between a Danish party and a foreign party - are the focus of chapter nine. Credit agreements are covered in chapter ten. Chapter eleven addresses intellectual property rights in their various forms - copyright, patents, trade marks and the like. Chapter twelve deals with marketing and competition law. The thirteenth chapter explores the basic elements of financing law while chapter fourteen deals with money claims and the various Acts in Danish law that will apply. Chapter fifteen covers the transfer of claims, assignments and relations between assignor and assignee.

Chapter sixteen addresses real estate both in respect of sale and mortgage. Chapter seventeen looks at security rights over chattels arising through pledge or mortgage. The law relating to guarantee is the subject of chapter eighteen, and chapter nineteen deals with business collapse and the law relating to liquidation and reconstruction. Employment law and the legal relationship between employers and employees is covered in chapter twenty. Chapter twenty-one addresses company law and the various types of business organisation. Chapter twenty-two looks at the choice of law rules which determine the international choice of law and international procedural law. The final chapter covers environmental law - an area of Danish law that has swiftly gathered its own body of literature.

The work will interest scholars, students and researchers engaged in the field of Danish business law as well as those practitioners and corporate lawyers doing business in Denmark.
