Nina Henningsen is specialised in intellectual property law and media & entertainment law with special focus on media and distribution. She has wide experience advising on Danish gaming legislation, including issues relating to EU law. She advises national and international radio and television stations, media companies, film producers, design companies and online gaming operators.

During the last few years, Nina Henningsen has conducted several cases on the legal problems arising after convergence became a reality on the Danish market. This includes cases within IP-TV, VOD (Video-on-Demand), NVOD (Near-Video-on-Demand), streaming and distribution of content on mobile platforms. Furthermore, Nina Henningsen advises companies in connection with the establishment of digital terrestrial television in Denmark and web compliance. She also advises on sports rights, e-books, TV formats, interactive advertising, publishing agreements and computer games.

Horten has Denmark’s largest and most experienced team of attorneys specialised in gaming legislation and the team is recognised as Denmark’s leading gaming law team both nationally and internationally. The team consists of a large number of attorneys with expertise within the different areas of provision of games in Denmark.

Due to our in-depth knowledge of the regulation of the Danish online gaming market and the different market players, we have great understanding of the regulatory, technical and operational conditions of relevance and importance to our Danish and foreign clients.

Horten therefore has wide expertise within all areas of Danish gaming legislation and many years’ experience advising Danish and foreign clients on issues relating to Danish gaming legislation.

We have provided advice on the process up until the liberalisation of the Danish gaming market on 1 January 2012. Our advice has concerned issues relating to national and EU law, financial rules, tax rules, marketing aspects and general commercial conditions in Denmark.

We also have comprehensive experience advising on applications for a licence to provide online games in Denmark, including online casino, bets and games subject to a restricted licence.

At Horten we are working hard every day to ensure our clients an advantage within their respective areas. It takes courage to make a decision – and to speak out bluntly. But we challenge the things which others take for granted. We ask questions, share knowledge and lead the way – especially in sectors characterised by particularly strict regulation and rapid development. Today, Horten is a leading legal adviser, and we rely on our solid experience to create better possibilities and results for Danish and foreign companies, municipalities and other public authorities.

All based on one of the strongest professional environments in Denmark; an ambitious environment respecting diversity and with a positive atmosphere. We bring this with us when meeting you as a client.

Horten has grown out of a public law world and is the leading legal adviser to the Danish public sector today – a position we develop every day. Our public law expertise is of significant value to many of our business clients, both Danish and foreign. Through the past 60 years, we have thus expanded our market position within the private market to cover far more than half of our business.

In times where the business world is increasingly regulated, the business community needs a legal adviser with in-depth insight into public regulation – both nationally and across borders. This is a fundamental precondition for the ability to navigate safely through the markets; a precondition which Horten is better capable of handling than others.

Another precondition is our international scope and understanding. Since 2000, Horten has achieved an international position by cooperating with a range of international law firms and participating in worldwide international networks. We know our cooperation partners well, but are free to act independently. In this way, we are able to ensure the best possible advice to our clients.

We have come a long way since 1953 when our company was founded. Today, our 240 employees represent one of the most solid full-service law firms in Denmark.

Sources report that Nina Henningsen of Horten is “doing a heck of a job in Denmark,” while peers have “the deepest respect for her skill.” She advised several operators on filing compulsory reports to the Danish Gambling Authority.
