I deal with insolvency and restructuring, employment law and general corporate law advice.

Through my broad experience in advising on matters relating to distressed businesses, both on the business side and on the creditor side, I handle both in- and out-of-court restructuring and bankruptcy proceedings.

I have experience from large bankrupt estates such as the bank, Amagerbanken, and several of the larger bankrupt estates in the real estate sector as well as liquidation of insurance companies. This has provided a broad knowledge of the special requirements and challenges of various industries.

I have also gained considerable experience with business transfers, real estate and foreclosures, drawing up contracts, company law and financial matters, as well as having extensive experience with negotiations and litigation.

Furthermore, I have specialized in handling employees’ affairs in bankruptcy, including the possibilities for covering salary claims at Lønmodtagernes Garantifond (LG), just as I advise on all aspects of employees’ rights in relation to an employer’s bankruptcy.

I am a certified insolvency practitioner.
