JUNIOR LEGAL ADVISOR
Helena Kjersti Sloth holds an MSc in business administration and commercial law and works as a junior legal advisor with a strong focus on regulatory matters, especially within cryptocurrencies.
As part of Samar Law, Helena has provided legal advice in several investment rounds and tax law cases in relation to cryptocurrency. In addition, she has worked with cases within corporate law, employment law, contract drafting and general commercial law.
Helena started as a Legal Student Assistant at Samar Law in the beginning of 2023 and completed her studies at Copenhagen Business School in the summer of 2023. Her master’s thesis concerned the EU’s anti-money laundering package, in particular the recast of the Money Laundering Regulation. It analysed whether the rules in the recast, which propose to extend the scope of application to include transfers of crypto-assets, violate the principle of proportionality.
Helena also has experience as a legal counsellor and team leader at Iværksætteretshjælpen, where she advised on various business law issues faced by entrepreneurs. The issues included challenges within corporate law, law of obligations, marketing law and intellectual property law. In addition, Helena has previously worked with compensation and insurance law.
