About Me

I am a partner in our Corporate group, based in Copenhagen, primarily working on M&A transactions.

I am a highly experienced M&A attorney with more than 15 years of experience, having advised private equity clients as well as industrial clients on some of the largest and most complex M&A transactions in the Danish market.
Further, I work as a trusted advisor, providing strategic and commercial day-to-day advice and is a board member in several companies and funds.
My focus is on value creation and achieving results for my clients. I have a commercial mindset and takes a business approach to legal issues.
My approach is pragmatic and solution-oriented, however, without losing sight of the details or being afraid to challenge status quo.
I make the complex simple and communicate issues in straightforward terms.
