Identity information and money laundering

AMC North is subject to the law on preventive measures against money laundering. We therefore have a duty to obtain and store identity information about any client.



Confidentiality and interest or conflict of loyalty

Everyone at AMC North is subject to a professional confidentiality agreement, i.e. that all information must be treated confidentially unless the circumstances indicate that the information is not confidential.

In accordance with the rules of the Danish Bar and Law Society and our compliance procedures, we examine whether or not there is an interest or loyalty conflict before we finally undertake a task. If a situation arises along the way, which leads to disqualification or conflict of interest, we must renounce the task.



Prepayment, fees, billing, and completion of a task

If we receive prepaid fees, assets, or expenses, this will be added to our client account and may, including possible interest, be used to offset future invoices and cover costs, unless otherwise agreed.

Payment for the task is settled according to the following parameters: time spent, the lawyer’s know-how, the complexity of the task, importance for client, the responsibility and result associated with the task. The fee excludes relevant costs and expenses.

When it comes to long-term tasks, either monthly or quarterly settlement is agreed upon. For individual tasks, we issue invoices when the task is completed. Our payment terms are typically 8 days from the invoice date and VAT is added according to applicable rules.

We reserve the right to terminate our assistance if the credit period on our issued invoices is significantly exceeded or if the client is insolvent. Furthermore, we can choose to withdraw from a case if, in special instances, we no longer find ourselves able to take responsibility for the case processing, or if we believe that it is in the client’s interest that our cooperation ceases.



Client funds

AMC North manages client funds in accordance with the rules in force on this. Accordingly, client funds are deposited on separate client accounts and the attributed positive or negative interest accrues to the client. Client funds are protected under the Consolidation Act on a Depositor and Investor Guarantee Scheme.

The protection is effective from June 1, 2015 and generally limited to EUR 100,000 per client per financial institution. AMC North is not liable for the loss of client funds resulting from insolvency proceedings by the financial institution in which the funds are deposited.
