Gregor qualified as a German Rechtsanwalt in 1995 and as an English solicitor in 1996.
Following a career at two leading international City of London law firms and at a US law firm, Gregor founded and led the boutique firm of Klein Solicitors. He joined Hunters as a Partner in the Dispute Resolution and Business Services departments upon the merger of the two firms in February 2014.
Gregor has a broadly based practice with an emphasis on international commercial dispute resolution and, in particular, on complex and high value cross-border and multi-jurisdictional arbitration and litigation cases. Gregor is a Member of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators and an accredited mediator with ADR Group.
Two other aspects of Gregor’s practice are a strong contentious and non-contentious international IP practice, focusing on brand protection, and the exploitation, protection and enforcement of trademarks, domain names, design rights and copyright; and a leading practice in art and cultural heritage law.
His clients have to date included sovereign governments, multi-national corporations, banks and other financial institutions, an Ivy League University, but also small innovative start-up companies, art galleries, dealers and collectors, artists and sports personalities, family offices and private clients.
