KPMG Law strengthens its Legal Financial Services division

The Frankfurt office of KPMG Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft mbH (KPMG Law) has recruited Stefan Kreß as a lawyer for the Legal Financial Services solution line. The 37-year-old started as a senior manager at KPMG Law on May 1, 2017, which is equivalent to salary partner at other law firms.

Kreß began his career as a lawyer in 2010 at the boutique firm Berger, Steck & Kollegen Rechtsanwalts- und Steuerberatungsgesellschaft mbH in Frankfurt am Main, which was founded from a merger of partners of Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP, Frankfurt am Main. Previously, he had been a research associate at Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP for several years. In October 2013, he then moved to Dechert LLP, also in Frankfurt am Main, where he worked as an associate in the Financial Services/Asset Management practice area until April of this year.

Since May 1, Stefan Kreß has been supporting the further development of the Frankfurt Legal Financial Services team under the leadership of Dr. Markus Lange. His consulting focus is in particular on asset management as well as the support of KWG and KAGB procedures at the German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin).

Dr. Markus Lange, Head of the Solution Line Legal Financial Services, on the further strengthening of his area: “Stefan Kreß brings valuable expertise to advising our clients in asset management. We are very pleased with his decision to join KPMG Law.”
