‘Innova Law has been an invaluable partner for us. They helped us by listening to our thoughts, needs and overall vision – and thereby helping us to make the best legal foundation for our market.’

‘We have been through a few lawsuits since opening our business and Innova Law – and especially Christian Lomborg – has been “the rock” we needed going into legal battle. He is patient and sympathetic. He understands our frustration and always gives a little extra to keep us informed about the ongoing cases’

‘They are a team that complements each other really well across their peak competencies, and we have always received perfect help and savings in all the processes.’

‘We have greatly enjoyed lawyer Christian Lomborg Jessen, who in our opinion is one of the best in Denmark in his field.’

‘What makes this practice special is the collection of very large capabilities in a relatively small office. One can always count on partner involvement regardless of case size. In addition, I think a special feature is the ability to translate law.’

‘We use Christian Lomborg Jessen for construction issues and Elisabeth Villadsen Jensen for real estate. Common to them both is that they are extremely competent. You feel in completely safe hands, which can probably be attributed in particular to their ability to understand the customer’s needs.’
