Comment: This litigation and arbitration practice is centered on distribution and commercial law disputes. Once again, however, the most visible partners were those active at the interface to the firm’s dispute resolution practice. Energy law specialist Dr. Achim Compes is conducting proceedings – followed with great interest across the industry – against a grid operator on behalf of offshore wind farm company Trianel on account of its delayed grid connection. The firm is also involved in various other high-volume disputes in the offshore sector. The appointment of Thoralf Herbold to equity partner further bears witness to the boom in energy disputes. (8 equity partners, 1 salary partner, 2 counsel, 2 associates)
