    Lateral partner Stefan Fink joins Eversheds Sutherland in Munich

    Eversheds Sutherland announces the key strategic hire of Stefan Fink as a partner in its German real estate practice. Stefan, who joins the firm from ADVANT Beiten Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft, will be based in the firm’s Munich office.

    Stefan brings an entrepreneurial approach to the firm, and has built an international client portfolio during his career focused on real estate matters for leading corporates, with sectors including investment and asset management, technology and consumer brands with a range of real estate requirements in Germany.

    After studying law at the Rheinische Friedrich - Wilhelms University and the German University of Administrative Sciences (DHV), Stefan was admitted to the German Bar in 2000. He holds a Doctorate from Rheinische Friedrich - Wilhelms University and an LL.M. from the University of Northumbria, Newcastle. Stefan worked at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer for five years before becoming a partner in a major US law firm. He joined ADVANT Beiten in 2011.

    The demand from clients for a greater focus on ESG matters, and changing work patterns in a post-pandemic environment, have also driven an increase in real estate advice needed from clients. These include green buildings, smart buildings, improvements in in-office technology to support hybrid working and Stefan’s hire will support our wider teams to provide this advice.

    Alexander Niethammer, Managing Partner, Eversheds Sutherland Germany comments:

    “We are delighted that such an experienced and senior real estate partner has chosen to join our team. Stefan Fink brings with him a strong portfolio of international clients, who each have complex real estate needs. His skills and commercial outlook will be of huge benefit to our international, cross-border real estate practice. As a very ambitious law practice in Germany we are committed to hiring the right candidates to support our clients’ growth strategies, and Stefan’s addition is an important step in supporting this approach. We look forward to working with him.”

    Stefan Fink comments:

    “The opportunity to provide my clients with access to full-service legal advice was a key part of my decision to join Eversheds Sutherland. Increasingly, clients require a more integrated approach to their real estate needs and to be able to access the firm’s focus on client technology and its innovative platform will be of huge benefit to them. I am delighted to join Eversheds Sutherland and excited for this next step in my career.”
