ABOUT

Legal Master Advisor

Welcome

My name is Hayel Celik-Graversen and I am the founder of LEGAL MASTER ADVISOR. I appreciate you for visiting my website where you can find information about my professional skills and services and get to know a little bit about who I am. I was born on 26 July 1982 and grew up on a small island in Denmark just 15 minutes away from the beaming centre of charming Copenhagen. I hold a Masters-of-Laws from the University of Copenhagen and I have more than 13+ years of experience in the legal profession in Denmark. I am committed to supporting gender equality and empowering women in every aspect possible. I am part of the Network of Women in Law and Tech facilitated by My Law Story. 

My boutique legal hub is my ongoing life project where I assist clients professionally within my niche areas and with business development. LEGAL MASTER ADVISOR is also where I enhance my own personal growth, expand my network and build professional collaborations. While being a modern entrepreneur – and human’s rights advocate with a vision of personal freedom – I expand my legal and human skills from a holistic starting point and give advice to others accordingly.

My latest experience is being an Inhouse Legal Special Advisor at the Danish Institute for International Studies (DIIS). My former experiences in my career has been in the private sector as an Associate attorney in law firms, Legal Counsel on freelance basis, Tax Manager at Big4 and Head of Section at the Danish Refugee Appeal’s Board, where I worked with human rights and immigration law in the Danish Department of Justice. I initially chose to study law in order to help others live better lives. From time to time I teach classes as an external lecturer at the Copenhagen Law Faculty, latest within Advanced Taxation.

What drives me next to being a trusted advisor:

While growing up and during my academic studies I found most interest in writing, cinema and photography and I still see the world through an aesthetic lens in everything I do and manage to use it for growing business or inspire individuals as well. My most important focus in life is to be the mother of to my two young sons and inspire others to live in balance with their belief system, seek wisdom and be independent on life’s journey.

Over the past years, optimization of work processes, digital solutions, strategy and business development have become my cornerstones too. Since 2006 I have provided advice to award-winning companies e.g. in the retail industry and helped with external management and legal consultancy with great success.

I always look out for advisory board and inhouse opportunities with the aim of making a sustainable impact.

Nordic Ayurveda logo

Aside from growing my legal hub, I am currently studying as an Ayurvedic Health and Lifestyle Consultant at Nordic Ayurveda (www.nordicayurveda.com). I have learned that I too have a passionate call to convey the thousand-year-old, fundamental and profound tools of Ayurveda. I too wish to be part of this special movement by Nordic Ayurveda that hopes to make a positive difference in this world. Most importantly, I am truly humble and excited to meet the wonderful people behind and be part of their unique network.

I am a people’s person and would like to get to know about you and your journey too, so please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours truly,

Hayel Celik-Graversen
