Dr. jur. Julia Spiekermann
As in-house lawyer at MICUS, Dr. jur. Julia Spiekermann is responsible for legal advice in public award procedures.
Dr. Spiekermann studied Law at the University of Bremen. Afterwards, she held a scholarship from the University of Bremen, which gave her the opportunity to write her dissertation on the European legal framework. During this time she also worked for the Research Centre for European Environmental Law at the University of Bremen. The submission of funding applications and, in particular, the following awarding procedures usually raise a number of legal questions. In order to obtain and ultimately retain funds, it is particularly important to comply with European law on state aid in all project phases. With Dr. Spiekermann, MICUS has additional expertise and a further contact person for our team in legal and regulatory questions, which are indispensable for technical advice within the tenders for fibre optic construction.
