Family, Inheritance and Probate

Hjort has a long tradition of assisting private clients in the areas of family law, inheritance law and probate, and aims to maintain and further develop its high level of expertise in these areas. Hjort is one of very few large and medium-sized law firms to make private client work a priority area.


The members of the group have considerable litigation experience at all levels of the judicial system, and regularly conduct family, inheritance and probate cases before the courts.

In addition to legal expertise, work in the private client area requires the ability to support people during critical phases of their lives. We have a particular focus on the human considerations that must be safeguarded when working with people in challenging personal situations.
