Stefan M. Kruse
Stefan’s practice covers a wide swath of the corporate and commercial legal landscape, in both transactional and dispute resolution/litigation matters. He advises businesses, societies and individuals on a range of issues including corporate structure, commercial leasing, real estate development, local government matters, technology, intellectual property and franchising. Stefan is also versed in preparing wills, trusts and other personal planning documents, and advises on business succession matters.
A small business co-owner with his wife, Stefan brings his own entrepreneurial experience to bear in serving other local start-ups and small businesses. Stefan joined Murphy & Company in 2017 after articling at a small solicitor’s firm in Vancouver.
Outside of work, Stefan may be found cycling, hiking, climbing or paddling around the lower-mainland, cooking, or sampling the many coffees and craft beers around his home in East Vancouver.
