KPMG Law expands Corporate / M&A business – Stuttgart office strengthened

The internationally active KPMG Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft mbH (KPMG Law) is expanding its corporate and M&A business in Stuttgart, thus strengthening the location. As of April 1, 2012, the renowned corporate and M&A lawyer Dr. Steffen Fortun and his team (Dr. Anjella Neveling and Dr. Karsten Gschwandtner) will join KPMG Law. The particular expertise of Fortun’s team is advising international groups and medium-sized companies on all legal issues relating to M&A business.

“The particular appeal of this new position lies in the impressive development dynamics of KPMG Law and the interdisciplinary and international consulting environment of KPMG AG,” explains Fortun. The 51-year-old lawyer joins KPMG Law in the position of partner. He will be joined by Dr. Anjella Neveling (41) on April 1 and Dr. Karsten Gschwandtner (37) on July 1.

All three are moving from Luther in Stuttgart to KPMG Law. Fortun brings many years of experience in advising national as well as international companies in the areas of M&A and restructuring. He gained this experience at Rädler Raupach Bezzenberger and Sigle Loose Schmidt-Diemitz & Partner before joining Luther in 1999.

KPMG Law will thus significantly expand its team in Stuttgart within a short period of time. “The new additions strategically strengthen the Stuttgart office. With Fortun and his team, we have been able to gain pronounced experts with sound expertise who are very well networked in the market,” says Manfred Kessler, Managing Director of KPMG Law.
