Distinguished addition - Noerr expands Energy Group with Cornelia Kermel
and Maximilian Uibeleisen

Berlin/Frankfurt, 16 December 2013.

Noerr significantly increases its capacity in the energy sector with two
distinguished personnel additions. From 1 January, the outstanding energy
lawyer Dr. Cornelia Kermel joins the Noerr Energy Group as an equity
partner. Kermel, to date partner with the Berlin law firm Sammler Usinger,
will join the Berlin office with two Associates.

At the same time, Dr. Maximilian Uibeleisen will take up the position as
Associated Partner in the Frankfurt Noerr office. Uibeleisen has been with
Freshfields for seven years, latterly as Principal Associate, acting in
many renewable energy and conventional power station projects.

'The regulated industries have for many years been among our strategic
growth areas. With the coming of Cornelia Kermel's team and Maximilian
Uibeleisen, we emphasise the importance of our energy law services', said
Dr. Holger Schmitz, Co-head of the Regulatory&Governmental Affairs
Department. 'Together with the more than 20 experts of the Noerr Energy
Group, our new colleagues will further develop and deepen the advice to
energy companies, investors and banks in the course of implementing their
energy sector projects.'

Cornelia Kermel is among the leading experts on the energy industry. She
acts for German and international energy suppliers especially in the course
of investment in electricity and gas networks, their operation, and
defending against their takeover by municipalities or conversion of
networks to cooperation models. 'With the support of Cornelia Kermel, we
gain additional energy industry know-how for our clients', said Christof
Federwisch, head of the Noerr Energy Group.

Cornelia Kermel emphasises: 'Unlike almost any other law firm, Noerr

reacted to the changed environment on the energy market and, with the Noerr
Energy Group, today offers a market leading inter-disciplinary level of
service. I look forward to availing of the opportunities of an
internationally set-up energy practice.'

Uibeleisen specialises in advising on major volume energy generation and
infrastructural projects and has comprehensive experience in acting for
project initiators in complex approval proceedings and investors in
cross-border transactions. 'Against the background of the major challenges
in energy infrastructure, the significance of project advice, for example
in public sector participations, has been noticeably increasing for some
time. With his expertise, Maximilian Uibeleisen therefore ideally
complements our range of services', said Federwisch. International energy
suppliers such as EDF, Ibedrola or Swisspower rely in major projects in
that area on the advice of the Noerr Energy Group, as do investors and
