Storyline

Top-notch defense attorney Mikael Frank is the central figure of the young Copenhagen lawfirm which he co-owns. His marriage is breaking up while he spends his time consumed with work alongside his colleagues: Co-owner and former prosecutor CC, caring and naive Malene Bork and fresh-out-of-law-school attorney Rebecca Neumann, soon with the additions of recovering criminal Patrik Larsen and shrewd business lawyer Leo Zielinski. While the staff deal with the problems of their private lives, the firm's cases are also among the most tense and dramatic, and they face stiff opposition from talented prosecutors like Pernille Karmark and heavy scrutiny by strict judges such as attorney-turned-judge Fritze Krogh.

Trivia

Due to disappointing ratings for the first eleven episodes of Forsvar, the series was changed in a number of ways for the second season. The episodes were a bit shorter, there was a new title sequence with an emotional title song, and the producers promised a stronger focus on feelings and personal relations as opposed to investigative procedures and court negotiations.
