KUNZ expands in Public Procurement and Public Commercial Law with new Partner at the Mainz Office

Dr. Andreas Ziegler will move from PwC Legal to KUNZ as of March 1, 2021 and will head the Mainz office as a partner in the future.

After KUNZ had already expanded its international consulting services at the beginning of the year by adding the Andersen team around Dr. Hermann Knott, thus expanding the Cologne office, the Mainz office is now being expanded by adding Dr. Andreas Ziegler to the partnership. Ziegler began his legal career at Kapellmann und Partner. This was followed by many years as a senior associate for Allen & Overy LLP in public procurement and public commercial law, before he moved to PwC Legal in Frankfurt in 2018, where he has since worked in the public procurement law practice group, currently as a senior manager. Since 2017, he has been a lecturer on public procurement law at the University of Mannheim. He also has a high affinity for construction and real estate law.

"With the inclusion of Dr. Andreas Ziegler, we are not only expanding our Mainz office with a proven procurement law expert. At the same time, we are also closing the gap at partner level there, thus highlighting the great importance of the Mainz location for KUNZ," Dominic Steinborn, Partner at KUNZ, is very pleased. "Our team at the Mainz office around Dr. Dr. Theis has specialized exclusively in construction and public procurement law mandates, as well as mandates from public commercial law, in particular environmental and planning law. Dr. Ziegler combines a high level of professional competence in all areas and therefore meets our requirements at 100 percent. His experience in regulatory issues in the M&A business and also in the transport sector will also lead to close interaction with the offices in Koblenz and Cologne, in particular with Dr. Knott's team."

Ziegler is looking forward to his new job with anticipation. "I have followed the rapid development of KUNZ in recent years with great interest. I am pleased to be able to take the next step here and to be able to manage and strengthen the Mainz location with my projects and experience."
