Dr Jan Deuster studied and earned his doctorate at the University of Cologne. His dissertation deals with the granting of compensation payments for services of general economic interest according to the Altmark Trans jurisprudence of the European Court of Justice with particular regard to the financing of air traffic. As part of his work as an attorney in a large German infrastructure law firm, he was able to sit in on a traineeship at the Association of German Transport Companies in 2007 and experienced the conclusion of Regulation (EC) No. 1370/2007 on public passenger transport services by the European legislator from the point of view of the Association.

Dr Jan Deuster specializes in the field of public commercial law, in particular European state aid and public procurement law. He primarily advises the public sector on the financing, organisation and market access of municipal public utilities and infrastructure companies, in particular in local public transport, the broadband sector and the utilities sector.

At present, he mainly advises public transport authorities and municipal transport companies in proceedings for the re-granting of the public passenger transport service contract pursuant to Regulation (EC) No. 1370/2007 and the PBefG, taking into account the preservation of existing tax advantages. A further focus of his consultancy work is on the legal support of the financing of municipal companies with regard to state aid, whether through shareholder contributions, tax cross-linking or municipal guarantees. Questions concerning the financing of cultural, social, economic and tourism promotion in accordance with European law round off his consulting portfolio.
