Experience

Niko Czaplicki specializes in the valuation of energy and infrastructure assets and the economics of regulated companies in the energy and transport sectors. He assists law firms and their clients with expert economic analysis in complex arbitration proceedings, advises energy companies on the challenges of the energy transition, and provides regulatory due diligence advice to infrastructure investors. Tribunals and investors have been comfortable basing their decisions on his expert reports because of their high quality and reliability.           

Mr. Czaplicki has been involved in assessing economic and financial issues arising in commercial and investor-state disputes before ICSID, ICC, SIAC, and DIS tribunals. His work spans quantum of damages assessments, questions of causation in the context of the development of regulatory regimes, and the calculation of lost profits and additional costs resulting from construction delays. He has performed assignments in investor-state disputes with a focus on renewable energy, including offshore wind, hydro, and biomass.

Drawing on his expertise in regulatory and energy economics, Mr. Czaplicki has provided regulatory and commercial due diligence advice in the power, natural gas, and hydrogen sectors in Germany, France, Luxembourg, Denmark, and the Czech Republic. In addition, he regularly advises regulated companies such as network operators and interconnectors in strategic questions arising from the energy transition and in negotiations with and appeals to regulatory authorities. Recent sample projects include cost of capital estimation in various jurisdictions and for a diverse set of assets, strategic advice to a European gas transmission operator during a potential conversion to hydrogen, and analysis of the impact of national and EU decarbonization plans for an electricity generation and district heating company investor.

Mr. Czaplicki also advises regulated companies and investors including airports and rail operators in the transport sector. He also provided economic analyses and advice in the context of the emerging EU data regulation (e.g., Digital Markets Act, Digital Services Act, General Data Protection Regulation).
