“I am very happy to recommend Ruth as a solicitor. She provided me with excellent advice during the formation of CiteAb, a University spin out company. She gave advice on the legal documents associated with the spin out and the documents associated with my secondment to that company. She showed excellent understanding and was careful and caring. She gave me great confidence that my interests were protected and I could confidently sign the documents.”

“Ruth expertly gave her advice to me about many Danish commercial and labour law issues (including some extremely specialized ones). I shall say I was particularly impressed by her ability to be highly detailed and at the same time capturing the essence of my requests. She demonstrated a great level of expertise and her memorandums were always clear, practical and promptly delivered. As a legal advisor, Ruth earns my highest recommendations.”

I can highly recommend Ruth and her colleagues at UNIVERSADVOKATER. Ruth is quite unique in that she has dual qualification and offers a very user-friendly experience for English counsel seeking Danish legal advice.

I have really appreciated her wide-ranging expertise and assistance with all manner of projects - from GDPR compliance to VAT issues - in the Danish tourism sector.

Ruth is very easy to work with, very responsive and engaged. She's more than capable to understand IT language in the context of B2B and B2C customer segmentation and GDPR requirements. The end result always translates in to human understandable legal documents. We're very satisfied with the results and an ongoing work. Ruth is our GO-TO legal expert and it doesn't matter whether task is big or small, the approach is always the same: thorough and professional.
