About us

Štefan Štefanek, Attorney at Law

I was born in 1974 in Zagreb where I completed my regular school education. I acquired my master’s degree in law at the Faculty of Law, University of Zagreb in 1998. I also completed my internship as a trainee lawyer in Zagreb and became an Attorney-at-Law and a member of the Croatian Bar Association in 2003. I founded an independent law office where I work together with associates. We collaborate with external experts of other professions. I work closely with the Attorney-at-Law Igor Dlačić, the Attorney-at-Law Ivana Markovinović Žunko and Rechtsanwältin Monika Topalović, München. You can see the expertise areas of my legal office on these Web pages. I gladly share the acquired professional knowledge by participating in seminars and lectures. Since 2018, I have been a guest lecturer at the Faculty of Education, Josip Juraj Strossmayer University in Osijek.

In my work, I use Croatian, English, Slovenian and French languages.
