What fuels Mads?

Mads is a true man of the world. When an occasion offers itself, he transforms into an explorer and goes on discovery in foreign cultures. If he could, he would, probably, recreate Around the World in 80 days - but, luckily, for us he takes one country at the time.

A man of solutions

There is those lawyers who are a part of the solution and those who are a part of the problem. Mads is a man of solution with capital S. Mads listens to everyone, both the client and the opponent. That way he will, often, find a solution, everyone can be satisfied with, even though, there is a great disagreement in the beginning. Mads' opinion is that all parties will do best by agreeing - if they can and will.

Humour as a tool

Mads is the merry man of the office. He finds it easy to laugh and loves to share it. Luckily, he is the type of person who laughs with people - something all of us appreciates. His odd and, sometimes, black humour makes everyone around him relax. Mads is also the type who seeks humour and he dives into everything from comedy to the more sofisticated, British humour.
