‘Outstanding legal competence, business acumen and unambiguous binding statements, especially in crucial, critical situations’ lead clients of major German law firm Hengeler Mueller to have ‘the greatest confidence in its advice’. The transactions handled often have an international component, as advising Vitol on the €1.37bn acquisition of Petrol Ofisi shows. Another highlight was assisting innogy with the merger of npower, innogy’s UK distribution business, with SSE’s end customer and EnergiePlus business to create an energy distribution company in the UK.

Within: Energy

Hengeler Mueller offers a multifaceted spectrum of energy law advice with its 14-partner strong team, which covers regulatory matters, disputes and M&A projects, joint ventures and financing. From its Berlin office, the practice often handles projects in the renewable energy sector. Dirk Uwer assisted Centrica with the establishment of joint ventures with Bayerngas Norge in the area of exploration and extraction of crude oil and natural gas, while John Flüh and Nicolas Böhm acted as lead counsel for 50Hertz Transmission on the 20% acquisition of shares by State Grid of China. In other work, Thomas Meuerer and Andreas Austmann advised innogy on the merger of its British distribution business with SSE’s retail energy and ‘energy plus’ business for the creation of an independent energy distribution company. In the contentious space, highlights included representing DB Energie in the pursuit of repayment claims and claims to future adjustments of long-term power supply contracts with a large energy provider. Sebastian Schneider was promoted to partner at the start of 2018.
