Bio

I enjoy the feeling of turning client’s frustration of complications into a relief. To let them know ” Hey, I am here for you.”

I love eating out, hiking in mountains, spending time with loved ones and snuggling with my cats.

Michaela speaks: Slovak, Czech, and English

Q

Bio

I started my career in intellectual property and fell into internet and data privacy with great pleasure! I am passionate about online interactions and how to be “legal in digital”.

Being optimistic, I enjoy rain, sun and snow, in particular skiing down steep hills.

Caroline speaks: French, English and German

Q

Bio

Online legal enforcement. Apply creative methods to dig out what behind a suspicious website is – sometimes find out that the counterparty is no less creative!

I love science fictions and strategy games as well as surfing on Internet.

Yuan speaks: Chinese (Mandarin & Cantonese), English, and French

During my career, I developed a strong interest in information technology and cyber security matters. As part of the Legal Enforcement team, I occupy a front-line seat facing these new threats.

I like cooking, fixing computers and playing sports.

Bio

My curiosity drove me to explore different industries during my career: insurance, tourism and now internet and digital. I love to be helpful and useful; this is why I have mostly been working in customer support.

I am passionate about different cultures, travelling, trekking or organizing barbecues in front of the sea with nice food and a glass of craft beer.

Massimiliano speaks: Italian, and English

Q

Bio

Why I love what we do? At BRANDIT we help our clients protect the hard work, sweat, and tears that they put into building their business – what’s not to like?

My four kids took away my hobbies, corona took away all travelling, but I am still very fortunate to have my large family to keep me busy when not working.

Michael speaks: Danish, and English

Q

Bio

I advise clients on all kinds of IP matters, with a particular focus on trademark management and strategy. I work hard to achieve the clients’ interest in a creative way and always with a smile.

Giulia speaks: Italian, and English

Q

Bio

Customer care was shaping my professional career from the very beginning. Me and my team are always striving to offer you the best possible and reliable service – which is also my biggest motivation.

Being kind to each other and enjoying the positive side of life – sharing these values in any form with people around you is the way to go.

Michal speaks: Slovak, English, and German

Q

Bio

It is a great pleasure to help the clients secure their intellectual property rights and protect some of their most valuable assets, namely their trademarks and designs.

Ann speaks: Danish, and English

Q

Bio

IP business is fun and challenging and after many years I sail in it with the curiosity and passion of a child and with the knowledge and awareness of an adult.

It is important for me to work for the company which cares about its clients. In my opinion, BRANDIT is this kind of the company. The people here care about the clients and they know the clients also personally.

Q

Bio

I have been in the world of Digital and IP for almost 20 years and I love to see the developments there have been. I like to challenge norms, to push boundaries and to find new improved ways to do things. Mostly I love working with people. In this world where everything turns around software and digitalization, I find important to add the “magic” called people. When you have both innovation and people, you can offer the best solution.

I am a black belt in martial arts and in my younger days I played football at a high level. Both are still very close to my heart; I like to keep myself active. I am also a big wine-lover but a terrible cook.

Jesper speaks: Danish, English, and German
