Leading international technology, media and telecommunications law firm Olswang, continues its growth strategy by adding new partner Martin Hamer to its German team. Martin Hamer will be joining the firm's public infrastructure group and has a long standing expertise in advising international and national players in the energy and refinery sectors.
Martin Hamer brings his particular expertise in the areas of renewable energy, carbon economy and green technology with a particular focus on German and European climate change and emission trading laws. He joins from Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer where he spent more than ten years, thereof four years as Counsel.
Christian Schede, Managing Partner in Olswang Germany, highlights the strategic element of this partner hire: "With Germany's fundamental decision to withdraw from nuclear power production, Germany's economy will be significantly driven by investments into green technology and renewables. Martin Hamer's joining supports us in providing high calibre legal advice at the interface of green technology, projects and renewables regulations."
Olswang CEO David Stewart welcomes this strategic addition to the international team and comments: "As a leading international technology law firm, Olswang is combining its extended regulatory expertise on climate change with its traditional profile as a leading adviser to cutting edge players in the technology sector."
Following the recent appointments of two partners, Florian Rösch and Henning Sieber (real estate) along with new joiners such as Josef Hofschroer (corporate), Thomas Lynker (intellectual property), Manteo Heikki Eisenlohr (employment) and Christiane Huismans (insolvency & restructuring) the managing team at Olswang in Germany has expanded to 15 partners and two counsels.
