Per’s daily practice

‘When I started my career as an attorney, my practice was initially broad and general in nature. In addition to tenancy law, I now focus primarily on construction law and the broader aspects of property law, starting from the initial sketch, navigating the permit process and the architect and building contract, to completion and sale or rental of the property. My clients mainly include property developers, housing associations, landlords, tenants, clients, architects and contractors.’
