Legal Master Advisor


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.

Professional experience:

Currently, I work as a Senior Legal Advisor at University of Copenhagen where I negotiate contracts related to EU-funded research and innovation projects. My former experiences in my career has been in the private sector as an Associate attorney, Inhouse Legal Advisor in an international research institution, Tax Manager at Big4 and Head of Section at the Danish Refugee Appeal’s Board at the Danish Department of Justice. From time to time I teach law 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. 

My most important focus in life is to be the mother of to my two young sons and invest in my family. I hope to inspire others to live in balance with their core values. 

Aside from growing my legal hub, I have started a new and innovative slow living hospitality concept called The Guesthouse to inspire to a sustainable future.

My aim is to link the holistic approach to our lifestyle and into our work life to create balance and the best conditions for deep work and focus while maintaining our mental and physical health.

With The Guesthouse concept, I also want to share my life philosophy about being human in our age and inspire to slow living that has changed my personal and professional life for the past five years – and I have never felt better.

During the course of the year, The Guesthouse invites exclusive groups to events with the intention of creating space for workations, writing and reading stays. The Guesthouse is the perfect setting for this and invites everyone to live consciously.

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
