Hanne Mølbeck specialises in public and environmental law matters

For the past 20 years, Hanne Mølbeck has worked with public and environmental law matters, including in particular infrastructure projects and compulsory acquisition. 

As one of Denmark's leading specialists within compulsory acquisition, Hanne is known for rendering advice in plain language, for her constructive collaborative skills when it comes to case handling, and her profound understanding of and interest in the development of society's infrastructure.

Hanne assists Metroselskabet I/S in connection with the operation of the Metro and the construction of the city circle line, Cityringen. In addition, her experience includes other types of infrastructure (light rail systems, roads, utility lines, ports, etc.), and she regularly advises administrative regions and municipalities on general land and rights issues. This means that she works with, for example, local development plans, urban development projects, cadastral issues as well as securing and relocating utility lines. 

Hanne primarily represents the public sector, including mainly public construction authorities and infrastructure owners, but she also assists private enterprises within her field of expertise.

Hanne frequently teaches and lectures on public and environmental law topics and participates in relevant networks.
