WirtschaftsWoche names Orth Kluth as TOP Law Firm 2022 and Dr Michael Sitsen as TOP Lawyer 2022 for public procurement law

Partner Dr Michael Sitsen and his team were delighted to be named TOP Law Firm and TOP Lawyer for public procurement law yet again by WirtschaftsWoche (issue no. 36 of 2.9.2022) in recognition of the public and procurement law practice group’s excellence.

The PPL team specialises in mobility-related public tenders. It advises clients on a wide range of relevant and practical legal issues in connection with the transport policy turnaround, hydrogen mobility and electromobility, alternative mobility providers and the digital transformation, as well as conventional public transport, passenger rail transport and rail freight transport.

Another focus area is public procurement law consultancy services in connection with renewable energies such as hydrogen, solar and wind energy. In these areas the practice group provides comprehensive advice to government authorities, public sector organisations, transport companies and bidders in tenders, including assistance with contract drafting and with subsidy and state aid-related matters. The team also advises clients on the procurement of architecture and engineering services, construction and other services.

In collaboration with the Handelsblatt Research Institute over 1,200 lawyers at 148 law firms were requested to nominate their most distinguished colleagues in the field of public procurement law. An expert jury reviewed the nominations and created a final list of 50 leading law firms and 70 highly recommended public procurement lawyers.
