Vienna, November 16, 2017 – Stefan Riegler (42) is moving to Austria’s largest law firm. Riegler will lead the arbitration group of Wolf Theiss in Vienna and further expand its multijurisdictional arbitral practice.

Stefan Riegler specializes in representing companies involved in commercial legal disputes before arbitral tribunals and can look back at more than a decade of experience in this area. Mr. Riegler worked for Wolf Theiss as an Associate in the years 2003-2005 before subsequently helping to build up the arbitration practice of Baker McKenzie, most recently as Partner.
