Alexandra Andhov

Lawyer, Scholar & Innovator

I am a lawyer whose primary focus is on how technology can help change corporate and capital markets in order to become more sustainable, inclusive, democratic, and fair.

As an Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Law, University of Copenhagen, I have developed innovative research and teaching in the area of corporate and capital market law. My innovation course Start-up Law brings law students into the centre of start-up life and helps them understand how start-ups operate and how the role of lawyers is changing. The course DigiLawyer brings students closer to technology, legal design, and digital skills, whereas the course on Blockchain, allows students to understand the technology and design the regulation and governance in collaboration with software architects.


​As a founder and advisor to several FinTech and LegalTech start-ups, I have been advising start-ups and their senior leadership on their corporate structure, financing options, growth strategies, governance, and policy challenges related to digital identity, blockchain and distributed ledger technology, and privacy matters. I have worked across three continents, universities, law firms, business intelligence companies and start-ups.


Law & Innovation platform is a space where I share my research and insight. I aim to bring new perspectives on novel technologies, their values and challenges for societies that cherish human rights and human dignity. I aim to create a space where the design of law and the tools that enhance the law and compliance are discussed and reviewed. I will strive to keep you informed about the new policy and regulatory developments and cases.
