About Janie

My clients are companies in the SME segment, including foreign companies with Danish subsidiaries and owner-managed companies as well as start-ups.

For many years I have advised on employment and labor law matters. This includes a wide range of regular ongoing advice on personnel legal issues, holidays, equal treatment etc., bonus schemes, share options, warrants, employee shares, non-solicitation and competition clauses, employee relations in connection with corporate transfers as well as restructuring.

In addition, I have participated in collective bargaining in the private labor market and I regularly lecture on employment law and personal data protection.

In recent years, compliance and personal data protection have comprised more and more of my advising in line with the intensified regulatory focus and the progress on digitalization.

 

I advise many CEO’s and senior executives in connection with severance agreements and contractual issues or disputes relating to their employment.

I am a very experienced adviser on company law matters, shareholder agreements, consulting and collaboration agreements.

Board leadership is high on my agenda. I have solid experience with working as a board member and I am active in various associations focusing on increasing the diversity and professionalism in the board room.

You are always welcome to call or write to me if you would like to have a preliminary discussion about an issue.

Being a good lawyer takes much more than just knowing every inch of the law. Strong personal skills and earning other people’s trust are a must. And then you have to be a better listener than most people.
