Stefan joined the Boyce Law Firm in January, 2016. A South Dakota native, he grew up in Sioux Falls, where he graduated from Augustana College. In 2015 Stefan graduated from the Wake Forest University School of Law and returned to Sioux Falls to join the South Dakota Bar.
At this point, Stefan’s law practice is still growing and he is exploring all areas of the law. Working with both small private companies and publicly traded corporations, much of Stefan’s experience to date has focused on business transactions and commercial leasing. More recently, Stefan’s practice has focused on general litigation support as well as worker’s compensation litigation.
Stefan Szwarc was born February 25, 1990 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Throughout his childhood he lived Basel, Switzerland and Las Vegas, Nevada until he eventually moved to Sioux Falls, where he calls home today. In 2012, Stefan graduated from Augustana College with majors in philosophy and German and a minor in the Classics. Directly after graduating from Augustana, Stefan moved to Winston-Salem, North Carolina, where he spent the next three years studying law at Wake Forest University School of Law. After graduating from Wake Forest in 2015, he moved back to Sioux Falls to join the firm.
During law school, Stefan acquired a broad base of knowledge of the law with a focus on real estate and business law. Spending time pouring over and drafting commercial office leases, Stefan gained a foundational knowledge of real estate law and significant experience drafting complex transactional documents. This knowledge and experience helped Stefan when he worked with in-house counsel on a variety of business related issues at the Lowes Companies Headquarters in Moorseville, North Carolina during the summer between he second and third year of law school.
Since he started his practice at Boyce Law Firm in January 2016, Stefan has worked on a variety of legal issues and he is always willing to work on and learn something new. To date, much of his practice has focused on worker’s compensation litigation and other employment issues. He looks forward to expanding his practice throughout a wide range of legal topics.
