Timo Günthert advises plant and grid operators on general energy law. In addition, he focuses on the legal framework for the realization of energy projects, in particular energy generation and storage facilities. The overlaps with environmental and nature conservation law that often arise in this context, as well as the necessary public law approvals, are also part of his advisory practice. A particular focus of Mr. Günthert's work is advising energy-intensive companies on all aspects of energy compliance as well as EU state aid and subsidy law.
