International law firm Pinsent Masons has boosted its Finance & Projects team with the appointment of Dr Martin Eimer as partner.
Joining the firm from Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer where he co-led the Freshfields Major Projects Group, Martin has a broad range of experience in cross-sector commercial contracts and disputes. He specialises in large and complex construction and engineering projects, both contentious and non-contentious.
Eimer has particular expertise in litigation and arbitration across the energy, infrastructure, manufacturing and technology sectors and a strong focus on projects in Eastern Europe and emerging markets.
Michael Watson, Head of the Finance & Projects group at Pinsent Masons, comments:
"I look forward to welcoming Martin to the firm. His experience as a projects and infrastructure lawyer with a practice that encompasses both non-contentious and contentious work will be a welcome addition to the firm's international energy and AMT teams. With advances being made in German offshore wind energy and the development of interconnectors, as well as opportunities arising from nascent nuclear decommissioning, Martin joins at an exciting time for the energy sector, in particular in Germany."
Rainer Kreifels, Partner and Head of Germany at Pinsent Masons, adds:
“Martin's expertise across Finance & Projects aligns well with the focus of our German offices, as well as the firm's wider international strategy. I'm delighted that he's agreed to join us."
Pinsent Masons is ranked among the top 50 law firms in Germany, following a period of significant investment and expansion for the firm. The firm opened in Munich in 2012 with a team of seven partners. Since then it has opened in Dusseldorf and grown to a team of around 150 people including almost 30 partners. The German practice is focused on cutting edge legal services in the areas of technology, life sciences, energy and real estate.
International law firm Pinsent Masons has further enhanced its commercial litigation, regulatory and tax litigation practice with the appointment of Andrew Sackey as a contentious tax partner in its London office. Andrew will work with clients across each of the firm's five key global sectors – Energy, Infrastructure, Financial Services, Real Estate and Advanced Manufacturing & Technology.
