Established in 1974, Viltoft enjoys a reputation among clients and peers for being among the very best within its practice areas.

Viltoft has represented Metroselskabet I/S in Denmark’s largest construction arbitration ever against an international consortium of civil works contractors regarding phases 1 and 2 of the Copenhagen Metro. Viltoft is highly experienced in crossborder construction and energy sector disputes, including disputes regarding offshore projects. Viltoft’s team is also often involved – both as counsel and arbitrators – in disputes outside of the firm’s specialist areas, including general commercial, corporate and insurance disputes.
