JUVE AWARDS 2017: BEITEN BURKHARDT is Law Firm of the Year for Energy Law

Frankfurt am Main, 27 October 2017 – The international law firm BEITEN BURKHARDT has been awarded Law Firm of the Year for Energy Law by JUVE.

The energy law practice group was delighted when the winner was published on 26 October 2017. BEITEN BURKHARDT continuously strengthened and developed regulatory advice, particularly in the energy industry, working together with all players at the energy law market: energy producers, power suppliers and marketers, as well as grid and storage operators (electricity, gas and heat). The practice group members also work together with energy service providers, project developers and industrial firms, as well as financial investors and financing banks.

This successful development of the practice group convinced the JUVE awarding body in its decision. Providing reasons, the JUVE team said: "The expansion of the Berlin office propelled the law firm to the forefront of energy law. Now the law firm can provide advice to its numerous new, also international, clients more comprehensively than ever. The approach pays off: The team is well positioned on the consultant list of large energy suppliers."

Dr Maximilian Emanuel Elspas, head of the energy law practice group, is particularly delighted that the "successful work of the previous years has been honoured with this prize. Such an award motivates the entire team." Frank Obermann, Managing Partner at BEITEN BURKHARDT, adds "that this award is a symbol of BEITEN BURKHARDT's continuing development. The whole law firm is pleased about the honour. Moreover, the recognition confirms BEITEN BURKHARDT's successful strategy to focus on industries."

The JUVE awards ceremony took place – traditionally – at Frankfurt's opera house Alte Oper on Thursday, 26 October 2017. The JUVE editorial team honours law firms for their particularly dynamic approach with an award. The decisions are based on information obtained from extensive research for the JUVE handbook which the editorial team conducts annually.
