Prof. Dr. Stephan Lorenz

Of counsel

A skilled assessment of preliminary questions of civil law, especially in white collar cases, is frequently of crucial importance for a successful defence. When advising companies on preventive measures and on investigative proceedings, questions of civil and criminal law are closely linked. As well as cooperating with law firms specialised in civil and commercial law, Ufer Knauer Rechtsanwälte also works closely with one of Germany’s leading specialists in civil law, Dr. Stephan Lorenz, who prepares legal opinions for the firm on matters of civil law and advises us on these matters.


Professor Dr Stephan Lorenz studied in Munich and Lausanne. Following his post-doctoral thesis in 1997, he held the chair of civil law, civil litigation law and international private law and comparative law at the University of Augsburg. He holds a chair at the Ludwig-Maximilian University in Munich since 2002.

Professor Lorenz is a member of the Bavarian Constitutional Court since 2009.

His research work focuses on the fields of contract law and international private law. He is known for numerous publications in both areas.
