The code of conduct for the Danish Bar and Law Society
Accura’s attorneys are subject to the code of conduct for the Danish Bar and Law Society (de advokatetiske regler) which defines the frames of our activities as attorneys and which requires that we provide certain pieces of information to the world around us. You may read them here:
Admission to practise law by the Danish Ministry of Justice
The Danish Ministry of Justice has admitted Accura’s Danish attorneys to practise law. If Accura has employees or partners who are admitted to practise law in other EU countries, they are registered with the Danish Bar and Law Society and practise law in Denmark on the basis of their foreign titles.
The Danish Bar and Law Society
Accura’s attorneys are part of the Danish Bar and Law Society.
Accura has taken out a liability insurance and provided a guarantee in accordance with the rules of the Danish Bar and Law Society. The liability insurance covers all legal services irrespective of where such services are provided. The partners and employees not admitted to practise law are also covered by Accura’s liability insurance. Accura’s liability insurance and guarantee have been taken out with Codan Forsikring A/S, Gammel Kongevej 60, DK-1790 Copenhagen V.

Depositor guarantee scheme
The Danish Act on the Investor and Depositor Guarantee Scheme (lov om indskyder- og investorgarantiordning) applies to the deposits in our client accounts. This means that deposits up to EUR 100,000 will be covered if a bank is failing. This limit applies to our clients’ total deposits in the bank.
Accura’s terms of business
Accura’s terms of business are an integral part of our agreements with our clients. The terms of business contain standard provisions on governing law and jurisdiction.
In certain cases, Accura’s clients are entitled to public legal aid or legal aid available under an insurance.
The Disciplinary Board of the Danish Bar and Law Society
The Danish Disciplinary Board has the power to process complaints about conduct and decide disputes about Accura’s fees. The Disciplinary Board’s office address is Kronprinsessegade 28, DK-1306 Copenhagen K, and its website is www.advokatsamfundet.dk/advokatnaevnet.
