“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.”

About Janie C. Nielsen

I advise small and medium-sized enterprises, including foreign companies with subsidiaries in Denmark, and CEOs and other executives of the largest Danish companies.

My advice includes, for example, preparation of bonus and commission plans, other incentive schemes such as stock options, warrants and employee shares, non-solicitation and non-competition clauses, employee rights in connection with business transfers and reorganisations. Moreover, I have considerable experience in preparing and negotiating contracts, especially shareholders’ agreements, executive service agreements and employment contracts, severance agreements as well as consultancy agreements and cooperation agreements.

I have experience in advising on ownership structures and corporate governance, also in partnerships, as well as on the liability and duties of the executive board and the board of directors.

I have developed significant expertise in the special regime governing remuneration practices in the financial sector.
