Nils started out as a trainee in a large Danish IP firm in 1999 after finishing his degree in physics & chemistry and ended up as department manager and partner in 2008 before relocating to Germany for private reasons (yes…love) and joined aera in the spring of 2018.

As key account manager on a number of big clients, he has been orchestrating teams of patent attorneys to cover broad technological areas. Nils has assisted several large academic institutions in different countries with evaluating and prioritising their new ideas as well as their existing portfolios.

Nils understands the value of IP as a strategic tool, and clients appreciate his direct and honest approach to when to pursue patenting – and when not to. He has extensive drafting and prosecution experience and has yet to back down from a complicated invention, that being endovascular surgery, quantum computing or time travelling (honestly!).
