Michael Rosenberg practises in the field of banking & finance law, with a primary focus on cross-border finance transactions. He advises international and domestic banks, financial institutions, private equity funds and corporates on all aspects of financing, including syndicated and bilateral bank lending, leveraged and acquisition finance and capital markets transactions. In addition, he acts for Danish and foreign private equity funds and companies on Danish corporate law matters, mergers & acquisitions and private equity investments in a variety of sectors.

He has a particular expertise in acting as local counsel for Denmark on large-scale cross-border transactions and has consistently been recommended by the Legal 500 for banking & finance law and by Chambers Global 2023 as the sole Danish banking & finance expert located outside Denmark.
