Rasmus Mehl

I have practised law since 1999.

Through the years, I have advised and assisted clients on business law, focusing in particular on tort and insurance law, including D&O liability (members of boards of directors, executive boards, and supervisory boards) and professional liability (lawyers, estate agents, accountants and engineering consultants) as well as dispute resolution in trade and industry (litigation, arbitration and mediation (judicial mediation)) and company law, including transaction-based advice. I have conducted numerous cases before the Danish district courts, the Danish High Courts and the Danish Supreme Court within my areas of expertise.

For many years, I have worked as an external lecturer at the University of Aarhus giving lectures on the law of contracts and damages, limited companies and professional liability and later at the University of Copenhagen lecturing on limited companies. Since 2012 I have been an external lecturer at Copenhagen Business School.

I act as an external examiner at Danish Master of Laws programmes.

In parallel to working as a lawyer, I studied a Masters degree in taxation (LL.M.) at Copenhagen Business School in 2017, and I completed a mediation programme at Baltimore Mediation Center, MD, USA, to become a certified mediator/judicial mediator in 2004 and 2006.
