As of February 1, 2015, Dr. Kirsten Thiergart will join the corporate practice of Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek in Zurich as salaried partner.
Thiergart, who had already worked at Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek between 2000 and 2005, will strengthen the team led by partner Dirk W. Kolvenbach. She joins the firm from KPMG Law, where she most recently headed the Commercial and Corporate Law department in Cologne, and will predominantly work at Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek's Zurich office.
In addition to her expertise in commercial and corporate law, Dr. Thiergart also has substantial experience in the advice of private clients from her earlier work at Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek. Using this combination, Thiergart will in particular find a wide field of application at large family businesses and will ideally complement the expertise existing at Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek.
"In Dr. Kirsten Thiergart, a highly qualified and very experienced lawyer will return to our firm, who will sustainably strengthen our firm in particular in the fields of corporate law and private clients," said Dirk Kolvenbach.
