Prof. Dr. Isabel Langenbach leaves Heuking to join the federal government
Dr. Isabel Langenbach, Mag. rer. publ., was appointed Professor of Public Law and Public Procurement Law at the Federal University of Public Administration effective January 1, 2022. As an interdepartmental state institution of the federal government, the university is responsible for the education of federal civil servants.
As a successful and dedicated lawyer, Prof. Dr. Langenbach was a member of Heuking’s public procurement team. Her career began 12 years ago in the department of Dr. Ute Jasper, Head of the “Public Sector & Public Procurement” practice group and Partner at the law firm.

We hope the university appreciates its good fortune!”
“As a lawyer at Heuking, she has successfully advised federal ministries and higher federal authorities for many years and is very well acquainted with the structures. The federal government thus gains an excellent specialist – Prof. Langenbach has lots of practical experience and now trains civil servants for their experience in practice,” said Dr. Martin Schellenberg, Co-Head of the Public Sector & Public Procurement practice group and Partner at the law firm.
