Do you need support allocating subsidies for a broadband expansion project?
Would you like to clarify the regulatory rights and obligations when digitizing your network?
Are you planning to cooperate on a cross-sector bundled network modernization?
Are you looking for representation in regulatory procedures or before the courts?
Germany is undergoing a process of digitization of its supply networks. This affects network operators as well as municipalities and counties.
Sector-specific regulation provisions, especially the Telecommunications Act (TKG) and the Metering Point Operations Act (MsbG), stipulate guardrails, including guidelines on infrastructure sharing and coordination of construction projects as well as on the compulsory smart meter rollout.
At the same, these provisions offer huge potential for optimization, ranging from the framework of subsidy law regarding the broadband expansion to a legally compliant contract design of easement and cooperation agreements as well as end user terms and conditions. The examples mentioned above often affect a variety of subject areas, such as aspects of approval and access law, specific sets of rules on public procurement law as well as questions concerning municipal law.
