I'm a senior associate in our international Competition & EU group in Denmark and Head of our Nordic Gambling team. I specialise in gambling law, competition law and public procurement.
I have worked in the gambling sector since 2010 and I am one of the leading experts on gambling regulation in Denmark. I have been actively involved advising in connection with the preparation of the Danish gambling legislation. I advise licensed operators, platform providers, affiliates and other relevant parties on gaming law in Denmark and Sweden, including the complicated licence application process and issues relating to international transactions and handling of the transfer of licenses in this regard. I use my extensive experience and good relationship with the relevant authorities to help my clients get valuable, commercially useful and reliable advice.
Furthermore, I have written a number of articles and co-authored the Danish chapter in the International Comparative Legal Guide on gambling.
Drawing on my 15 years plus of working with competition law, I advise our clients on all aspects of Danish and EU competition law, including cases concerning Articles 101 and 102 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU), state aid and merger control. Prior to joining Bird & Bird, I worked at the Danish Competition Authorities where I participated in several dawn raids. My good relationship with the authorities benefits my clients and I advise clients who are subject to dawn raids, obtain merger clearance and deal with complaints about competition law violations. I regularly organise competition law training to identify current or potential violations for my clients and I design and help implement compliance programs.
I have deep-level experience of public procurement law and my advice covers the entire spectrum of public procurement procedures. I advise all types of contracting authorities and private parties on the organisation and implementation of EU tenders, national tenders, public-private partnerships and other projects, including within the Defence and Security Directive. Furthermore, I have extensive experience in handling complaints filed with the Complaints Board for Procurement and with handling complex procurement procedures with Danish contracting authorities.
