Henrik has specialized in corporate finance since 2001 and has provided advisory services in 185+ M&A transactions.  

Henrik Rossing Lønberg has long ago become a key player and house-hold name on the Danish M&A scene representing many prominent private equity funds and blue-chip corporations. 

Henrik has been involved in a significant number of the largest, most complex, sophisticated and innovative deals on the Danish M&A market, not only recently, but throughout the last two decades. During the past 15 years, Henrik has been one of the most active (top 3) and experienced legal advisors in Denmark in the field of mergers and acquisitions (source:, measured by number of transactions), and during the same period he has been one of the most active lawyers in the Nordic region.

Through his LL.M. degree from Harvard Law School (2001), his licence to practise law in New York and his subsequent employment at White & Case (New York) for more than four years (2001-2005), Henrik has acquired in-depth knowledge of and extensive experience in cross-border transactions. Henrik has continued to nurture his vast experience and network since his return to Denmark. A considerable part of Henrik's client portfolio is international. 

Henrik is the chairman of Plesner's Committee for International Relations and is recognized as a market leader in Chambers Global, Chambers Europe and Legal500.
