Tobias Kersten

German Public Auditor, German Tax Advisor, Lawyer

Since completing my legal and business administration studies, my professional activities have been focused on the interfaces between business administration, law, and tax law. After graduating, I worked in an insolvency administration firm and several large auditing companies where I was employed in various restructuring departments, among other departments. Since then, my two main areas of expertise have been year-end auditing and entrepreneurial consulting. I started working for FIDES in 2007 and became a partner in 2009.

Here, my focus is on supporting capital market-oriented companies and partnerships as well as on group accounting and international accounting in accordance with IFRS standards. As Managing Director of FIDES Corporate Finance GmbH, I am also responsible for the Entrepreneurial Consulting division and thus for the areas of strategy consulting, transaction support (M&A), restructuring consulting, optimisation or outsourcing of corporate management systems and corporate financing. Thanks to several years of intense involvement with restructuring projects and insolvency-related consulting, I also work as a court-approved expert.

Trust means providing direction and security.
