Germany has implemented measures to support businesses struggling from the effects of the COVID-19 epidemic. This includes a protective financial shield as well as changes to German civil and insolvency law.
Through our strengths in energy and transport, we support our clients across every aspect of major infrastructure projects around the world.
We provide practical, high quality legal services to clients developing and operating infrastructure in our core sectors of Energy and Transport. Long experience in these industries means we understand the complex inter-party issues which can arise, enabling us to take the role of a strategic partner to help our clients meet their business objectives.
With assets and projects ranging from pipelines, grid and transmission assets, water, waste, ports and terminals, airports, rail, roads to social infrastructure, we provide the right mix of skills and experience.
Our infrastructure practice is a natural extension of our work on financing and investing in large capital assets. We act for utilities, financiers, investors, including dedicated infrastructure funds, pension and sovereign wealth funds and private equity on domestic and cross-border matters.
Our advice spans legal and regulatory aspects from finance (project, asset, acquisition, equity and structured) to corporate joint ventures, M&A and private equity, privatisations and commercial contracts and project development work (planning, environmental, construction and real estate), tax and insolvency advice, competition and regulatory, employment and dispute resolution.
We have formed a dedicated team to assist our clients worldwide to deal with any and all challenges faced by businesses affected by the government lockdowns.
