By recruiting experienced lawyers, we are swiftly expanding our real estate and energy practices in Munich and Frankfurt. By the first of Octobre 2021 a well-established team of fifteen lawyers specialising in real estate transactions and financing, private and public-sector building law, procurement as well as energy law has joined our firm and is assisting our highly regarded partners Professor Antje Boldt (PhD) and Steffen Holatka in Frankfurt and Dr Michael Grünwald, Dr Wolfgang Patzelt, Dr Daniel Pflüger and Dr Florian Hänle in Munich. Due to these changes, the number of staff at our Munich office increased by eleven and at our Frankfurt office by four.
This means that, in one stroke, we are significantly enhancing the expertise of RITTERSHAUS in the field of real estate and building law and in the energy sector. The outstanding competence of the new partners is going to systematically strengthen our existing real estate and energy consultancy business. Hence, we continue to focus on holistic and innovative methods of consultancy. The innovative model of integrated project development adopted by the new practice team fits in very well with the mediation-driven advice provided by RITTERSHAUS. When handling large-scale projects, the teams shall from now on join forces to try new ways of avoiding and settling disputes and arguments.
