Welcome to the Arbitrator Intelligence Member Spotlight series.  This week our spotlight turns to Johan TUFTE-KRISTENSEN!

Johan Tufte-Kristensen is a Danish arbitration lawyer who works as a PhD Fellow at the University of Copenhagen Faculty of Law. He conducts a research project on conflicts of interest in arbitration and teaches civil procedure. Since January 2015, he has been representing Denmark in the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law’s (UNCITRAL) Working Group II that deals with arbitration and conciliation. He graduated with an LL.M. (cand.jur.) from the University of Copenhagen Faculty of Law in February 2014 and began working as an assistant attorney at Hafnia Law Firm immediately afterwards until he took up his research position at the Faculty in September 2014 and obtained educational leave from the firm. During his studies, he worked for the Danish Consumer Ombudsman and the department of dispute resolution at Bruun & Hjejle, which accommodates some of the most experienced arbitration practitioners in Denmark. He has been involved in the Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot since 2011, and he is a member of several Danish and international arbitration associations and fora.

Johan has served as the unofficial Danish liaison for Arbitrator Intelligence, providing information about Danish court cases and leading the hunt for Danish arbitration Awards. He has also provided helpful feedback to improve AI‘s Member email interface. A true scholar-advocate, we look forward to a growing relationship long into the future. Thank you, Johan!
