KPMG Law strengthens commercial and corporate law with Lars Figura

KPMG Law Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft mbH wins Dr. Lars Figura as partner for the areas of commercial and corporate law, real estate and dispute resolution at the Bremen office. Figura also brings expertise in sports law, which he will apply across all services.

Lars Figura will expand KPMG Law’s range of legal services in the Bremen metropolitan region in the areas of commercial and corporate law, real estate and dispute resolution.

In addition, there is close cooperation with the teams of KPMG AG Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft led by Olaf Buske, Managing Partner, Bremen, and KPMG board member Mattias Schmelzer, who is responsible, among other things, for contacts with major clients in the Hamburg area.

Figura joins from PwC Legal, where he primarily served family-owned businesses, middle-market companies and high-net-worth individuals. He began his professional career at Büsing, Müffelmann & Theye, a regionally established law firm with a national presence.

Figura was a top track and field athlete in his first career. After his active sports career, Lars Figura passed his state examinations in 2006 and 2009 and was awarded a doctorate in sports law in the same year. He is a lecturer at the University of Bremen, a board member of the Bremen Sports Foundation, a member of the German Association for Sports Law and the Sports Law Working Group of the German Bar Association. In addition to the above-mentioned fields, his legal activities also include advising professional athletes, clubs and other entities of organized sports as well as sports-related parties, such as sponsors and investors.
