Dominik Huebler applies regulatory, industrial, and financial economics and valuation to litigation, arbitration, and regulatory cases, as well as complex transactions. His recent work covers the energy, transport, and telecommunications sectors, as well as data privacy matters. He co-leads the firm’s global transport focus area, coordinating the firm’s work on issues of regulation, decarbonisation, and disputes in the rail, road, and aviation industries.

Mr. Huebler advises clients on matters involving construction delays at airports and power stations, data loss and privacy breaches under Article 82 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and investor-state arbitrations relating to changes in renewable energy frameworks (including offshore wind, hydro, and biomass), as well as the government-mandated closure of coal and nuclear plants. His work involves regulatory and quantum/damages analysis. His experience spans ICC, ICSID, UNCITRAL, PCA, and ad hoc arbitration cases, as well as national litigation cases and regulatory proceedings and investigations.

Mr. Huebler’s transaction advisory work includes regulatory and commercial due diligence advice on power and gas networks, multi-utilities, offshore wind farms, airports, and toll roads. In the last three years, he has covered targets in Germany, France, Belgium, Austria, Italy, the Nordics, and Eastern Europe (Czech Republic and Hungary).

Mr. Huebler also advises clients on state aid and other regulatory matters, including pricing structures, cost of capital estimation, auctions for renewable generation, power price forecasting, and efficiency analysis. Sample cases include the redesign of an Eastern European support scheme for clean energy, redesigning rail and airport charges to optimise capacity, assisting a Middle Eastern government entity with energy sector reform, and supporting various companies in their appeals against regulatory decisions on productivity requirements, cost of capital, and non-compliance with regulations.
