After a year of intensive planning, customer dialogues and development, Karnov Group Denmark is today launching its online legal research solution for municipalities; Karnov Kommune. Karnov Kommune is subscription-based and built specifically for the daily tasks of the municipality case worker, ensuring them efficient and fast access to best practice, regulatory information and case law. The solution also includes step-by-step guides, bringing the caseworker securely through the task at hand, enabling a correct base for a decision.

“When investing in the development of a solution like this, with a very broad and to some extent fragmented target group, we are very aware of the fact that there needs to be a clear benefit for the municipalities. It has therefore been important for us, throughout the whole process, to understand how we could create a solution that supports the daily working processes and thereby minimise risks. The many interviews that we have performed throughout the development process,, have ensured us that that there is a clear need for a tool that gives certainty in the day to day work and is easy and intuitive to work with” says Niels Munk Hansen, CEO of Karnov Group Denmark.

Karnov Group has 20 years of experience in building online legal information solutions, making the law accessible and understandable for legal professionals in Sweden and Denmark. It is this experience that has enabled Karnov Group to quickly develop a sound and stable solution for a target group tasked with the implementation of the law, without necessarily having a legal background.

“Our mission is to contribute to justice in society, and we do that by providing solutions for the challenges of today and the possibilities of tomorrow. The launch of Karnov Kommune shows how we realise this ambition. The success of our municipality solution in Sweden has shown us that there is a clear need for solutions that can assist caseworkers in the public segment making better decisions, faster. We therefore see the municipality market as a good opportunity for expanding our presence in the Danish market.” says Pontus Bodelsson, President and CEO of Karnov Group AB

Besides Karnov Kommune, Karnov Group Denmark also delivers online courses, helping employees in municipalities understand and be compliant with the regulations of public law. This is done in collaboration with the Danish law firm Horten Advokatpartnerselskab.
