Maritime and shipping Tier 1
Arnecke Sibeth Dabelstein was able to further expand its range of services for companies in the maritime industry through the merger between Arnecke Sibeth and Dabelstein Passehl in May 2018. In addition to traditional shipping law, the firm also has expertise in corporate, M&A, project finance, insolvency and restructuring. The team of eight partners handles maritime and inland waterway regulations as well as purchase and sale contracts and ship registrations. Clients include suppliers, shipyards, shipping companies and marine and transport insurers. Another focus is the cruise industry, where the team acts for ocean-going, river and expedition cruise companies on supply and charter contracts, terminal use as well as hotel and entertainment contracts. Jan Dreyer, Dieter Schwampe and Jan Tjarko Eichhorn are frequently recommended.
Transport law Tier 1
Following the merger of Arnecke Sibeth and Dabelstein Passehl to form Arnecke Sibeth Dabelstein in May 2018, the group now has a broader offering and, in addition to its many years of experience in road and air transport, also has expertise in maritime transport law. Under the leadership of Holger Bürskens, Ulrich Steppler, Marco Remiorz and Jan Dreyer, the team advises national and international airlines, freight forwarders, shipowners, carriers, logistics companies, trading companies, handlers, industrial companies, insurers and underwriters at six locations on the entire spectrum of transport law, with a particular focus on the support of logistics projects and the drafting of framework logistics contracts. Another focus is handling contentious work; the group regularly acts on liability proceedings for core client FedEx.

Thomas Richter advised a real estate investor on the planning and construction of a retail building project in Munich, and BWBG Berliner Wohnbau on issues pertaining to its Mein Falkenberg housing development project in Berlin. In other work, the team assisted architectural firm Snohetta with contractual matters concerning the tender procedure for the Elbtower project and advised a real estate company on the acquisition of land and on the planning and development of a residential and commercial building. Antje Boldt is another name to note.
