From the Magic Circle Firm to the High-End Boutique.
Before Stefan Kirsten founded KIRSTEN. RISK & DISPUTES in the spring of 2017, he was a lawyer with the world's leading law firm Clifford Chance for nine years. Working from Frankfurt, Paris, and Düsseldorf as a member of the international Litigation & Dispute Resolution practice group, he represented clients in numerous important commercial disputes before German and foreign courts and arbitral tribunals. He also regularly advised on impending conflicts as well as on the drafting of contracts and risk-oriented organisational procedures. In addition, he was responsible for maintaining relationships with Scandinavian companies as head of the German Nordic Group of Clifford Chance.
As a result of his work with Clifford Chance, not only has Stefan created a wide international network of legal and business contacts and resources, but he has also developed the seasoned expertise that only comes from many years of direct engagement in dispute settlement. On the basis of this experience, he was appointed as an assistant lecturer for International Litigation at the University of Regensburg in 2015.
Besides German, Stefan is fluent in English, French and Swedish.
