    Our contact partner and the team we use is led by Christian B. Prophet-Rannow who has been very ably assisted on various matters by Nikolaj Byriel-Øvall who is an excellent lawyer, able to manage matters for Christian with our total confidence. What stands out to other Danish law firms is the efficient delegation by Christian B. Prophet-Rannow of matters to the appropriate person within his team – in our case the time/allocation of tasks seamlessly between himself and Nikolaj. From a general counsel’s perspective they have a keen awareness of when they can manage the matter directly with the business and when general counsel input is required.
