About SIRIUS advokater: SIRIUS advokater is a modern boutique law firm with more than 85 employees, of which approximately 50 are lawyers and attorneys. We specialise in certain sectors and legal areas. In a committed collaboration, we solve our clients’ challenges in an understandable and usable way. We have a written set of core values which reflects our belief that to attract the most qualified people we must provide a challenging professional environment.
Board Chair Pernille Backhausen states: “At SIRIUS advokater, we have decided to expand our firm with a Compliance department that focuses on financial institutions and companies and GDPR. We have seen an increasing need for advice in this area, just as several other practice areas have become dependent on advice at the highest level in this area. At the same time, our clients want the advice to be given according to our usual values of focusing on the client’s needs for solutions that are easy to implement. This requires exceptionally great understanding of the clients’ organisational and commercial reality. The regulatory framework must be a condition and a tool – not jurisprudence and a barrier. Practical, applicable advice is a must. We are fortunate to have Flemming Pristed join our firm. He also strengthens our corporate and commercial practice areas within M&A and IT Law.”
On his move to SIRIUS, Flemming Pristed states: “I look forward to continuing my law practice with SIRIUS advokater. Joining SIRIUS will allow me to further develop my business together with a competent and value-based law firm for the benefit of my clients. I have created a good business but would like to be able to offer my clients legal advice within additional practice areas. I know SIRIUS advokater very well and as a company with competent legal specialists with strong values who, at the same time, see eye to eye with their clients. Working with the team at SIRIUS advokater will enable me to offer the broader skill set required for bigger tasks.”
