Christian is an advisor to some of Denmark's leading companies, for instance A.P. Møller - Mærsk, and he has over 25 years of experience in advising small and medium-sized companies on complex strategic matters regarding the establishment, protection and enforcement of IP rights in Denmark and abroad. 

Thanks to his background from one of Europe's largest IP consultancy firms (Zacco), Christian has built up an extensive network and acquired international specialist knowledge in Europe, China, Japan and the US.
