Hugo Berg Otterlei has extensive experience as a lawyer and is a highly recognised advisor in digitalisation and technology.

In the nineties, Hugo was a programmer and system integrator. From 2000, he has been a lawyer and worked mostly with technology-related contracts, and also a lot with due diligence and other transaction support.

An example is quality assurance and negotiation of ERP agreements. Projects often run over a longer period. Along the way, legal issues will typically arise regarding changes and progress, which Hugo is happy to assist with.

Hugo also works with commercial contracts that are not specifically related to technology. The contract can range from the simplest to the most complicated and comprehensive.

In negotiations, both parties perceive that he is solution-oriented and contributes to the progress.
