Germany > Public sector > State aid

GSK Stockmann‘s state aid team is jointly led by the Munich-based Wolfgang Würfel, who has experience in municipal projects, and Arne Gniechwitz in Hamburg; the latter has particular expertise in matters relating to seaport infrastructure. The practice includes state aid advice on the financing of public infrastructure, especially in the transport sector, as well as a wide range of advice to the public sector and its companies. Advice to municipalities and state aid classification of concept awards represents another growth area for the practice. Many instructions entail public procurement aspects; the group’s expertise in this regard was strengthened by the arrival of Friedrich Hausmann from PwC Legal (PricewaterhouseCoopers Legal AG Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft) in July 2020.
