Who's Who Legal Germany - Environment

Dr Alexander M Rehs is a salary partner in the German practice of PricewaterhouseCoopers Legal AG Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft (PwC Legal). Before joining PwC Legal in January 2014, Alexander was a member of the public and environmental law practice of an international British law firm in Frankfurt for six years. Prior to this, he worked as an assistant lecturer in public and administrative law at the law department of the University of Tübingen for three and a half years where he was awarded a doctorate degree in public international law in 2005. His doctoral thesis was promoted by the Federal Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Alexander advises private companies and public entities, governmental agencies and banks on matters of public and environmental law on a standalone basis and in the context of corporate and financing transactions and restructurings – both on the domestic and international level. He particularly focuses on the areas of planning law, emissions control law, waste and water law, nature and soil protection law, product regulations, mining law and the laws on renewable energies.

He has strong experience in advising on public and environmental law matters related to a large number of corporate transactions and restructurings for various enterprises of the automotive, chemicals, waste management, energy, mining, logistics, harbour industry and real estate sectors. His work regularly includes legal due diligence, drafting of agreements and legal opinions, coordination of environmental consultants, negotiating with public authorities and representing clients in administrative and court proceedings.

Further, Alexander has inter alia advised a series of foreign and domestic public utilities, project companies and governmental actors on planning and realisation of projects in the area of public transport infrastructure, onshore or offshore wind energy and the development of industrial premises. He also regularly advises on mining law issues, for example, in the context of projects related to underground gas storage facilities, the exploitation of geothermal energy, the exploration and production of oil and other mineral resources, including the related environmental impacts.

Alexander is a member of several professional organisations, including the German Bar Association, the German Environmental Law Association and the German-American Lawyers’ Association. He gives lectures and seminars in his areas of expertise and publishes regularly in professional journals. Alexander is fluent in German, English and French.

Owing to his international background and network he is often recommended for and involved in instructions with transboundary context.

WWL says: Alexander Rehs draws praise for his "great legal advice" and strong practice in the environmental sector.
