Germany: Industry focus

Telecoms

Within: Telecoms

Greenberg Traurig Germany stands out for regularly advising large real estate companies on business models in the telecoms area. Practice head Christoph Enaux assisted degewo netzWerk with pubic tenders for broadband and multimedia provision and advised Gesobau on the development of new concepts for FTTH (fibre to the home) provision for portfolios of new buildings, among other matters. Another core focus is project advice, where the firm has telecoms, media and antitrust experience. A highlight in the cable network space was acting for Vonovia on contracts with several cable network operators, particularly cable license agreements and the integration of new property portfolios. In January 2018, Niklas Conrad, who focuses on litigation, was promoted to the partnership and Carsten Kociok, who is a key name for regulatory matters, was made counsel.
