Committed to providing unique and proprietary legal and tax information through a leading platform with more than 1,500 legal experts, Karnov Group reaffirms its role as an authority in the information services industry through the launch of its first-ever Nordic Audit and Accounting Award, rewarding academic excellence.

The award was granted during the Nordic Accounting Conference 2018 which gathered leading scholars from the fields of audit and accounting. The recipient of the award is Morten Jensen, PhD Fellow from Copenhagen Business School, for his research on earnings management in manager-owned firms.

“We have a strong legacy of providing best-in-class content through our unique platform, and with our mission to become the primary partner for all accounting, legal and tax professionals we are especially delighted to launch this award and thereby re-confirming our support for research within the field of audit and accounting”, said Flemming Breinholt, CEO Karnov Group.
