GSK Stockmann‘s client base primarily includes airports and seaports, which the group advises comprehensively on the public financing of their infrastructure projects. The team recently assisted with a project to expand port infrastructure for the operation of a liquid gas terminal and also represented the client in notification proceedings. In this context, companies particularly benefit from the expertise of transport infrastructure expert Arne Gniechwitz, who jointly leads the practice with Wolfgang Wuerfel; the latter mainly advises public sector clients on the state aid compliant structuring of financing initiatives. In July 2023, Friedrich Ludwig Hausmann (state aid with a focus on public infrastructure) left and is now self-employed.
