“Why we are using Peter [Østergaard Nielsen] is that he has a very good commercial touch and knows the supplier market on wind, he knows the industrial players and is strong on the supply agreements,” says one in-house counsel at a Danish investment group. “He is very well known on the supplier market for wind. When he moved to Bech-Bruun we followed him, because we are attached to Peter, not the firm he works for.”

Nielsen joined the team in February 2016 from Moalem Weitemeyer Bendtsen and brings a strong reputation in the wind and renewables market with him.
