I chose Grant Thornton as we have a strong local presence in relation to Danish SMEs, combined with a large global network of Corporate Finance advisors. We effectively cover foreign markets for both buyers and sellers across industries and can, therefore, assist with any transaction. Our sparring and collaboration with our foreign offices are truly valuable and help ensure that we uncover the opportunities in the market.
