Profile

Torben Bondrop is one of Denmark's foremost litigators. His track record as a litigator is outstanding, and he has won 11 consecutive cases before the Danish Supreme Court.

Torben has had a right to appear before the Danish Supreme Court for more than 20 years, and he is also a qualified arbitrator. His high success rate and extensive ligation experience mean that he is in constant demand among Danish and international businesses, and he handles litigation and arbitration proceedings in a range of areas of the law.

Torben specialises in insurance and pension law, but, in addition to traditional insurance law, he has been engaged in advisors' professional liability, D&O liability, product liability, general commercial liability and reinsurance, and he has handled a large number of litigation and arbitration proceedings in all of these areas.

In addition, Torben holds positions of trust in the areas of procedural and general insurance law; he is a member of the board of the Danish Supreme Court Bar Association, secretary of the Danish Association of Insurance Law, a member of the board of Foreningen for Erstatnings- og Forsikringsret (FEF) (a Danish association for tort and insurance law), a member of the presidential council of the International Association for Insurance Law (AIDA) and a member of the board of AIDA Europe.
