Jesper Kaltoft specialises in competition and procurement law

Jesper Kaltoft advises Danish and non-Danish clients on navigating within the framework of competition law. Together with management, he determines the best strategy seen from a compliance and operational point of view when it comes to, for example, price and discounts, distribution systems and trading relationships.

He advises private enterprises on their participation in tender procedures and on entering into consortium cooperation. He has represented clients in several cases within procurement law before the Complaints Board for Public Procurement and the courts and has contributed with reports and investigations for public authorities.
