"My plan is to work as long as my mind is clear"

Karnov Group just published an article portraying our Senior Associate Henrik Rothe, whom we are very pleased to have in our team. 

In particular we are delighted that Henrik, at the age of 71, has no intention of retiring: “It is not in my nature to retire at all. I'm happy to work, and I've been offered a number of jobs that I think are deeply interesting and require a steep learning curve that I'm in right now” – Henrik Rothe.

At Copenhagen Economics, Henrik performs quality assurance of our economics contributions in complex legal cases, he supports our economist consultants in how to integrate economics insights into legal processes and how to deliver expert evidence to courts or arbitration panels.

New study: Digital transformation in business

Social media is a tool that allows consumers to interact with family, friends, and a wider social circle by sharing information and experiences in real time from their public and private lives. Massive reductions in the cost of information and communication technology and the proliferation of internet access have led social media to become an everyday tool for individuals and organisations across the globe.

In this study, we explore how digital tools contribute to society via impacts on business activity worldwide. There is significant evidence that digital technologies, like Facebook apps and technologies, facilitate business growth, trade, hiring and inclusion.

To explore these effects, we conducted a survey focusing on the role of social media, using Facebook apps and technologies as an example. Representatives from more than 15,000 businesses located in 30 countries and regions across six continents responded.
