Public Sector Practice Group develops very successfully and grows continuously

The Public Sector Practice Group of the internationally active KPMG Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft mbH (KPMG Law) can already look back on a very successful development in the current fiscal year. “In the current financial year, we are already showing an increase of around 80 percent year-on-year in advising the federal government, the federal states and large municipalities and their holdings, and are exceeding the 10 million euro revenue mark,” says Manfred Kessler, Managing Director of KPMG Law, underlining this pleasing development.

At the beginning of July 2012, the team was strengthened with Alik Dörn, who specializes in (European) public procurement law and public-private partnerships (PPP). The 39-year-old joins KPMG Law in Nuremberg and Frankfurt am Main in the position of Senior Manager – which corresponds to the position of Salary Partner in other law firms.

Most recently, Dörn was a senior associate at Clifford Chance in the public procurement practice in Frankfurt. He brings more than eight years of professional experience in public procurement law. Prior to that, he gained initial experience at Bird & Bird in the International Public Sector Group team. “KPMG Law, with its excellent network, offers me the optimal platform to further expand my procurement law expertise,” says Dörn.

The new addition strengthens KPMG Law’s expertise in public procurement law, particularly with regard to the interfaces with health care and energy. “I am sure that the demand for public procurement law, especially in the health care and energy sectors, will continue to increase,” explains Mathias Oberndörfer, Partner and Head of the Public Sector Practice Group at KPMG Law.

Following the addition of Dörn, the practice group now comprises 35 lawyers in Nuremberg, Berlin, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Düsseldorf, Stuttgart, Leipzig and Munich. This gives the firm one of the largest legal teams in the public sector nationwide, and the new addition continues the firm’s expansive growth in this area.
