‘The law firm is very proactive and catches problems before they arise. You feel safe working with the company. Professional and intelligent work – and always at the agreed time.’

‘The partners and employees work – as we say in Danish – at eye level with the clients.’

‘Our overall assessment is that INNOVA has a strong and cohesive team that collaborates well across specialized areas, which benefits us as a client.’

‘INNOVA as a team is characterized by the fact that the client has a permanent contact person, who in our case is Christian Lomborg Jessen. Christian handles matters that relate to his areas of specialization (Real Estate and Construction), and as far as matters that are outside his areas of specialization are concerned, he always makes sure to delegate to his specialized colleagues.’

‘Christian Lomborg Jessen’s set of values matches ours and customers and partners are treated with respect and fairness. Christian distinguishes himself by having extensive experience in the construction industry as well as a large network. He is analytical, but at the same time easy to work with.’
