DLA Piper represents Berlin airport in landmark state aid case
DLA Piper has successfully advised Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg (FBB) before the European Commission in a long-running case relating to state aid.
The European Commission has concluded that certain measures at Berlin Schönefeld airport do not constitute state aid and, as a result, the commission has reached an important landmark decision for the industry, which will be of interest to other pending state aid proceedings involving airports.
Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg and the former Flughafen Berlin Schönefeld were advised by DLA Piper partner Dr Ludger Giesberts and senior associate Guido Kleve (both litigation and regulatory, Cologne).
Representing the legal department of FBS were Gottfried Egger (head of the legal staff unit) and Franziska Wagner (head of aviation and planning law).
