International law firm Baker & McKenzie has further expanded its expertise in the energy sector. This summer, two renowned energy law experts Tim Heitling and Thomas Dörmer joined the Berlin office. Baker & McKenzie's Vienna office has now announced that Walter Boltz, former Executive Director at E-Control, will support the Firm as a senior advisor on energy.
"The Austrian energy market is facing major changes that will require more and more legal advice," says Andreas Traugott, Head of Baker & McKenzie's Energy and Competition team in Vienna. "New financial investors are entering the energy market and the imminent changes in green electricity will bring along new players. In this situation, extensive knowledge of the regulatory environment is particularly important. Walter Boltz is one of the most profound experts in the national and European energy sector and his advice will help further expand Baker & McKenzie's know-how in this area."
