I have been an attorney-at-law since 2003 and have worked with banking and finance for around 15 years.

In October 2017 I established Charlotte Fredborg Advokatanpartsselskab with the ambition of working as a flexible ressource in legal departments in financial institutions. Since then I have been seconded to Danske Bank, IFU and Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken.

Prior to establishing Charlotte Fredborg Advokatanpartsselskab I worked in the legal department of Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken in Copenhagen. In the department we co-operated closely with the business-side and worked with a variety of legal issues. I primarily focused on financing, including loan documentation, security rights, supply chain financing, trade finance, but also with general business law.

Before joining SEB I worked with the law firm Gorrissen Federspiel. Most of my time with Gorrissen Federspiel I worked in their banking and finance department focusing on regulatory aspects of banking and finance.

As a person I value being close to and understanding the business that I work with. I do my utmost to provide business oriented and value-adding advice.
