Persons and Partnership


Founding partner, Christine Hansen recognized the need for multi-disciplinary answers to complex problems over twenty years ago. As an award-winning lawyer, writer, and market forecaster she has recruited consulting partners to provide knowledgeable answers to problems in technology, business, education, publishing, the arts, and philanthropy.

The Partnership network reaches from United States to the European Union to Singapore to Australia, and from the Academy to the Press to Career Foreign Service to Senior Executive to Politician. Your needs receive not only international, but thoughtful, rigorous analysis.

While your competitors are still twittering about 'information', you shall possess knowledge.

Managing Partner

photo of Christine HansenFounding partner of Hansen Partnership, Dr. Christine Hansen disapproves of labels and stereotypes and has led a life to prove it. A concert pianist by the age of nine, Hansen is a published writer, critic, satirist, composer; and is one of the earliest Intellectual Property lawyers and IT company owners, to champion Open Source Technology. And, throughout her life, she worked for fundamental fairness, and defended those who could not defend themselves. Currently, Hansen is expanding her vision globally. She is exploring the highest, and most practical, uses of knowledge - and of wisdom - in the digital world using Open Source Technology.

She is considered an expert at replacing archaic codes with practical and original solutions drawn from law, philosophy, history, language, music, and the theories of mathematics and physics. She was educated at L'Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris, University of Missouri, and Pembroke College, Cambridge University.

In November 2005 Christine Hansen participated in the United Nations World Summit on the Information Society in Tunis. She addressed the International Forum of ICT Strategies and Investment (IFISI) in Morocco, March 2006.
