"With Ingo Braun, we are gaining a lawyer with 20 years of experience in financing transactions and financial market regulation, and with him we are also focusing on a new area of expertise in insurance law," commented Christoph Nauer, Co-Managing Partner of BPV Huegel.
"I am looking forward to the great common challenge at BPV Huegel to shape financing & regulatory practice nationally and internationally and to build up a new area," said Braun.
Markus Schifferl’s areas of expertise are international and domestic arbitration, as well as corporate and commercial disputes before national courts in the areas of plant engineering, construction, technology, energy related matters, competition law, joint-ventures, corporations and private foundations, as well as post-M&A disputes.
At the beginning of his career in 2003, Schifferl spent nearly a year as Associate at BPV Huegel. He spent from 2005 to 2007 with Schoenherr, then moved to the Torggler Law Firm, where he stayed for nearly nine years.
