About Me

I'm a partner in our international Tech & Comms sector group in Denmark where I use my extensive experience of drafting and negotiating outsourcing and IT agreements, as well as in IT-related dispute resolution.

I advise IT companies of every size, as well as customers, including public authorities, on contractual and public procurement law issues. Over the years, I have developed particular experience in drafting and negotiating IT and outsourcing contracts, as well as IT-related dispute resolution. Furthermore, I handle public tenders, mostly in relation to complex IT projects and framework agreements.

I have thorough knowledge of data protection law, including data processing agreements, privacy aspects of cloud computing, data transfer agreements and GDPR compliance projects.

Since 2017, I have been a certified IT lawyer which underlines my extensive focus on IT law. The certification requires a minimum of 500 hours of annual work on IT cases, which ensures top-level technological insight and in-depth knowledge of market practices. Additionally, I am an experienced negotiator and litigator, and a certified mediator and arbitrator. I have represented clients in a number of arbitration cases and further been appointed as arbitrator in some major IT related arbitrations. I am certified as and an expert in IT-disputes by the organisation of Danish IT Attorneys.

I frequently speak at conferences on IT law and contractual issues, and have co-authored a number of publications, including books on the Danish standard contracts K01 and K02, on contracts for agile software development and on the GDPR.
