Christian K. Clasen is new Managing Partner at Norrbom Vinding
Jørgen Vinding looks forward to dedicating his time to clients and business development.
Taking on the role as Managing Partner at Norrbom Vinding, Christian says:
“I look forward to running Norrbom Vinding. We are considered a leading firm in the area of labour and employment law. We are proud and pleased that so many people see us as the “go-to place” for both complex and smaller cases in our field. I will safeguard and, of course, work to further strengthen that position as Managing Partner. Also, I see great potential in international projects where we, as part of the Ius Laboris alliance, have something unique to offer clients with a global presence.”
Jørgen, who held the role as Managing Partner for several years before Christian, says the following about the decision:
”In February 2023, we will be celebrating our firm’s 25th anniversary. We have found that for us – as for other law firms – it makes sense to take turns taking on the leadership role.
Christian has been part of Norrbom Vinding since its establishment in 1998 and part of the management as a partner since 2007, so he very much has our firm’s values and DNA in him. Christian is therefore the right person to lead Norrbom Vinding. On a personal note, I look forward to dedicating all my time to clients and business development.”
