Comment: A firm recommended in the energy sector. The hard-hitting team further built on the finance and capital markets interfaces. On top of transactions for photovoltaic and wind power plants, work in pre-insolvency corporate rescue and the placement of stocks and debt issues of various energy companies, incl. from the oil and gas industry, confirmed this development. Regulatory advice to industrial companies made inroads. Düsseldorf partner Baltus’ practice landed new work involving the reallocation charge under the Renewable Energies Act, self-generation of power and direct marketing. Following losses in recent years, new Düsseldorf addition Dr. Tobias Woltering is making a mark: besides new clients, he helped take the strain off the established names and create space for client acquisition.
Recommended: Dr. Stefan Bretthauer, Marc Baltus.
