Who's Who Legal Government Contracts

Roland Stein specialises in public procurement law and international trade law. In the area of government contracts, he advises contracting authorities, mostly federal ministries and contractors in the fields of finance and energy. He furthermore advises bidders in contentious and advisory matters. He has considerable experience with regard to public procurement compliance and self-cleaning – acting both for contracting authorities and bidders. Additionally, he specialises in representations on sanction issues, especially with respect to exclusions and debarments of clients by federal and local authorities as well as multilateral development banks such as the World Bank.  

He also advises companies in all areas of international trade law, including customs law and excise taxes, export controls and sanctions law as well as public international law and general EU law.

His focus areas as well as his clients stretch across various sectors, including automotive, technology, services, technology, pharmaceutical, general industries, infrastructure and transport, as well as in the defence and security sector.

Roland Stein studied law at the Universities of Heidelberg and Leeds, and earned his LLM Eur at the University of Frankfurt, where he also wrote his doctoral thesis on an EU law topic. Before founding Blomstein, he spent nearly 10 years at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer in Berlin (ultimately in the role of counsel) and one year at a medium-sized law firm in Frankfurt.

Due to his half-German and half-Brazilian origin, he has and maintains close relationships to Brazilian law firms and regularly gives speeches to issues affecting Brazil and the EU.  

He is a member of the board of the Forum Contracting association, co-editor of the journal Contracting und Recht and the new public procurement law commentary Beck'scher Online-Kommentar zum Vergaberecht (published by Beck). He regularly gives speeches on international trade and public procurement law issues.

WWL says: Roland Stein is a pre-eminent name in the market who offers “profound background knowledge” of government contracts issues and is “recognised for his security and defence expertise”.
