Eimer has particular expertise in litigation and arbitration across the energy, infrastructure, manufacturing and technology sectors and a strong focus on projects in Eastern Europe and emerging markets.

Michael Watson, head of the finance & projects group at Pinsent Masons, comments: ’I look forward to welcoming Martin to the firm. His experience as a projects and infrastructure lawyer with a practice that encompasses both non-contentious and contentious work will be a welcome addition to the firm’s international energy and AMT teams. With advances being made in German offshore wind energy and the development of interconnectors, as well as opportunities arising from nascent nuclear decommissioning, Martin joins at an exciting time for the energy sector, in particular in Germany.’

Rainer Kreifels, partner and head of germany at Pinsent Masons, adds: ’Martin’s expertise across finance & projects aligns well with the focus of our German offices, as well as the firm’s wider international strategy. I’m delighted that he’s agreed to join us.’
