Having previously worked for several energy companies, he has long-standing in-house knowledge in German and European energy law, e.g. in the field of energy contract law, regulation and business processes in the electricity and gas industry, in all project and joint venture contracts in the upstream sector and in M&A transactions in the energy industry. His legal advisory work is complemented by regularly supporting his clients in dealing with public authorities on a German and European level.
