Kurt Retter

Kurt Retter has been a partner since 2001. He has practiced in various fields of regulatory law including: Constitutional, international and EU law, fundamental rights, planning and environmental law, regulated industries (energy, telecommunications and rail), life sciences, insurance, banking and finance, gambling law, compliance, data protection, infrastructure projects, aviation, as well as private clients.

Prior to joining Wolf Theiss, he worked in the insurance industry (2000/2001), gathering valuable business experience as an assistant to the board of the Austrian subsidiaries of Allianz insurance, one of the world's largest insurance groups. Holding degrees from Vienna University Law School (Mag.iur. 1991; Dr.iur. 1996) and the Yale Law School (LL.M. 1995), Kurt started his professional career teaching constitutional and administrative law at the University of Vienna for five years (1991-1996) and working for a large Austrian law firm as an associate (1996-1999).

Currently he is the head of the firm's regulatory team within the Regulatory & Procurement Practice Group. Due to his strong academic as well as practical experience in public law matters, Kurt has also been appointed some years ago as a member of the board of the renowned Austrian society "Forschungen aus Staat und Recht". In addition, Kurt is a member of the supervisory board of the 'Wiener Philharmoniker Privatstiftung' (Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra private foundation).
