Summary


My passion lies within understanding both the regulatory framework and the business case and being able to leverage such knowledge for the benefit of our clients by providing insightful and solution-oriented legal advice which delivers tangible results. Having had the opportunity to work with both private and public entities across many different industries, I understand that every assignment is unique and that high-class legal services require a profound understanding of the underlying business and its value drivers.

I have several years of experience in successfully negotiating and executing complex M&A, corporate and real estate projects, having represented both domestic and international clients in various corporate and real estate deals and investments, corporate reorganizations as well as in large-scale construction and infrastructure development projects. My professional experience includes e.g. working for a Big 4 company, a top-tier law firm, as well as a listed industrial company. I have participated in several board and shareholders’ meetings as an external legal expert and worked with business and legal teams of SME’s, listed corporations and private equity investors.

As Legal Business Partner at Wiidare, I advise clients primarily on a broad range of transactional and corporate matters, such as M&A and real estate transactions, financing and investment arrangements, group reorganizations and commercial contracts. Being somewhat of a generalist, I do also possess expertise from other fields of law, which allows me to provide comprehensive legal services.

I strongly believe that legal services may add great value to any operative business. It does, however, require for the legal advice to be focused on the relevant questions from the outset and for it to be presented in a comprehensible and pragmatic form. This ensures efficient and functional deliveries and that is what I strive to achieve in my day-to-day work.
