Profile

Michael Hur Bertelsen is a partner at Plesner in our team for IT, Outsourcing and Telecom.

Michael advises both Danish and international clients ranging from start-ups to blue-chip companies. 

Michael has been involved in numerous transactions and advised both customers and suppliers and have thereby acquired in-depth knowledge of value drivers and concerns on both sides of the table and, not least, of relevant market standards. 

Michael has vast experience in the procurement process and in drafting and negotiating outsourcing agreements as well as all types of IT/technology related agreements, including development agreements, implementation agreements, license agreements and cloud agreements.

In addition to technology related clients, the financial sector is one of Michael's special areas of expertise. He has assisted several banks and financial institutions in connection with the procurement of IT/technology and outsourcing and has rendered advice on the rules governing outsourcing for financial institutions.

Michael also has extensive experience in relation to M&A transactions, corporate matters and dispute resolution.

Michael is a dedicated and client-focused adviser providing sound, solution-oriented advice, both legally and commercially.

Michael holds an LL.M. from Columbia Law School in New York with honors as a James Kent Scholar. He has also contributed to various IBA guides on Danish corporate law (e.g. on minority shareholder rights and on treasury shares) and co-authored an article analyzing the liability aspects of the processing of personal data.

Michael is a certified IT Attorney by the Association of Danish IT Attorneys.
