Thorsten Kirch offers advice on energy law as well as public commercial law to national and international companies.



Thorsten Kirch is Councel at the Cologne office. He has many years of experience in advising energy supply companies and energy producers on energy law matters, the laws governing renewable energies and combined heat and power generation.

The main focus of his advice includes overseeing the legal aspects of projects for decentralised energy generation and storage (offshore and onshore wind farms, hydroelectric, photovoltaic and biomass plants, electricity and gas storage), as well as M&A transactions within the energy sector.

Thorsten supports clients with market integration of electricity from renewable energy sources and alternative electricity marketing concepts (e.g. PPAs, white label concepts), and regulatory matters associated with decentralised energy supply concepts (self-sufficiency, contracting and tenant electricity models).

Thorsten Kirch also has particular expertise in the area of enforcing contractual and statutory claims of his clients in arbitration proceedings and before the regular courts.


Thorsten Kirch is Counsel at GÖRG Partnerschaft von Rechtsanwälten mbB.

He was able to consolidate his specific experience and expertise in the energy market during a six-month client secondment in the legal department of an energy supply company. Before joining GÖRG in 2013, he worked as a clerk in the legal department of a federal government ministry. Following his studies in Bonn, he completed his legal training in Aachen.

He was admitted to the bar in 2013.
