Reinforcement for GvW Graf von Westphalen: Experienced team in telecommunications law joins the Düsseldorf office

The commercial law firm GvW Graf von Westphalen is continuing to expand its competence in the area of digitalization. At the beginning of the year, the well-known telecommunications law (TC-law) expert, Dr. Grace Nacimiento, joined the law firm's Düsseldorf office as a partner. She is accompanied by her associate of many years Dr. Carolin Küll, who is joining GvW as Counsel.

"Dr. Nacimiento represents to a high degree the specialization which our clients expect from us," said Christof Kleinmann and Dr. Robert Theissen, managing partners of the law firm. "As recognized telecommunications lawyer, she adds a further significant field to our services connecting to many existing GvW practice areas."

In addition to classic TC-law, Dr. Nacimiento works in particular at the interfaces to IT law, IT security, data protection and media law. The "experienced" and "well networked" attorney (JUVE Handbook for Commercial Law Firms 2018/2019) is also contributing her many years of experience in representing companies in telecommunications proceedings before the administrative courts. Her clients include well-known companies in the TC/IT sector and other industries which she advises on current topics such as spectrum management/auctions, M2M communications, connected car services and the Internet of Things.

Dr. Nacimiento comments her move: "GvW represents better than almost any other commercial law firm successful cooperation among practice areas and offices. In the age of digitalization, TC-law is increasingly linked to issues arising under IT law and data protection law. The law firm with the well-known IT and data protection practice provides an ideal platform for me to provide services together and comprehensively to my clients in the TC/IT industry."

The practice group IP/IT and media at the law firm counts twelve attorneys. The team led by Stephan Menzemer (IT/data protection) and Dr. Joachim Mulch (IP) is well regarded by clients for expertise, among other fields, in the area of digitalization (more).
