My background and fields of specialization

Administration and coordination of patent cases
As a patent administrator/paralegal I am responsible for a variety of coordination and administrative tasks in relation to patent cases, in close collaboration with our patent attorneys. I handle deadlines and formalities in relation to the filing and prosecution of patents, and correspond with Patent Office and associates across the globe. Furthermore, I am involved with the ongoing developments in our external communication with clients and authorities.

Fields of specialization and educational background
I hold a MA in Culture, Communication and Globalization from Aalborg University and a BA in Business Languages, French and English, from Copenhagen Business School. In 2023, I passed the Certified European Patent Administrator (EPAC) exam at the EPO.

I entered the IP profession in 2005, initially as a student assistant and later as a patent administrator/paralegal. I have worked for another IP law firm as well as in the industry with a large biotech company, before joining Inspicos in 2020. I keep up to date by participating in national as well as international patent courses.

At eye level

Spare time is family time. Three active kids, a house with a garden – there is always something to do, and we are never bored. We travel when we can, and when the opportunity presents itself, I love to read books, do puzzles or just watch a good movie.
