Ethics and Code of Conduct
Bachmann/Partners Law Firm acknowledges and complies with the Danish Bar and Law Society’s Code of Conduct.
Bachmann/Partners Law Firm does not accept cases for clients in which a current or imminent risk of a conflict of interests exists. When an assignment has been accepted we have established internal procedures to disclose and identify potential conflicts of interest. If there is any doubt about a potential conflict of interests Bachmann/Partners Law Firm has an internal Conflict and Ethics Committee that will resolve the matter.
According to the Danish Procedure Act and the Danish Bar and Law Society’s Code of Conduct Bachmann/Partners Law Firm is subject to a duty of confidentiality in respect of the affairs of our clients. Bachmann/Partners Law Firm treats all information that we receive from or about our clients with strict confidentiality. All partners and employees with Bachmann/Partners Law Firm must comply with the abovementioned regulations about confidentiality.
Bachmann/Partners Law Firm complies with the Danish Anti Money Laundering and Counter Terrorist Financing Act and does not engage in transactions that facilitate money laundering, terrorist financing or any offer of illegal activity, including tax evasion and tax fraud.
Complaints about tax assessments to the Danish National Tax Tribunal and the Danish Courts are covered by a cost refund scheme. If the tax assessment largely is upheld the Danish Tax Authorities will reimburse the costs of expert assistance from Bachmann/Partners Law Firm, including legal fees, by 50%. If the tax assessment largely is amended in favor of the taxpayer the Danish Tax Authorities will reimburse the costs of expert assistance, including legal fees, by 100%. The latter also applies in cases where the Danish Ministry of Taxation appeals decisions from the National Tax Tribunal or appeals rulings from the Danish Courts.
It is a condition of reimbursement that the taxpayer is fully liable for the expert’s assistance. This will always be the case when Bachmann/Partners Law Firm provides legal assistance to a client in a tax case.
