He has been involved in the Danish and international real estate sector for two decades, having headed up in-house legal teams at Skanska Denmark and lately PARKEN Sport & Entertainment. Jens has an in-depth knowledge of all aspects of the real estate business and will continue to develop this area for Magnusson in Copenhagen in close collaboration with real estate teams in other offices.
Magnusson also boosts its intellectual property and employment teams with the arrival of associates Linda Olesen and Kiki Lara Bruun-Kiilerich. Linda joins from the Danish Patent and Trademark Agency and will in particular support Partner Lars Halgreen’s practice within IP, sports and media.

Tina is a fluent Mandarin speaker and will support Partner Nikolaj Juhl Hansen in relation to Magnusson’s rapidly increasing work for Chinese clients in Denmark and Nordic clients in China.
I am delighted to see our office in Copenhagen further growing. Denmark is one of our core geographies and I am deeply convinced that the new team members will add value both domestically and on a firm-wide level, says the Senior Partner Per Magnusson.
Thanks to our internationally-focused business strategy, we see an increasing amount of cross-border work coming our way, both international clients coming to the Nordic region and us being asked to support Danish businesses when they go abroad. We now have an even stronger team in place to deliver to our clients, comments the Managing Partner Copenhagen Lars Halgreen.
All new team members will join effective as of 1st March 2016, except for Linda Olesen who will join in mid-April.
