Veronica Petersen

I joined NT Advokater as a partner in 2022. Before joining NT Advokater, I was a partner of DLA Piper and most recently of Sirius Advokater.

I advise in particular social housing associations and public authorities on all aspects of real estate project development, including contract negotiations and due diligence processes in connection with real estate transactions and planning and execution of mixed-use/integrated buildings. I also manage, and provide advice during, tender processes under the Danish Public Tenders Act, the Danish Public Procurement Act and the Danish Public Procurement Order.

I have more than 15 years of experience advising on administrative and municipal law as well as the planning of tasks handled by public authorities, including their partnerships with private-sector companies (PPPs and strategic partnerships).

My expertise lies in particular in construction project planning within the framework of the delegated client model (now s. 116 of the Danish Social Housing Act). In that connection, I have also been a member of the task group appointed by Byggeskadefonden − a Danish selfgoverning institution dealing with the problems caused by faulty building construction. The task group is responsible for the Fund’s model contracts on cooperation between social housing associations and privatesector parties.

Within the field of social housing, I also provide advice on tenant-landlord issues, ghetto-related matters/development plans, side activities, contracting as well as dispute resolution. Moreover, I have assisted a large number of social housing associations in matters concerning resident democracy in social housing associations.
