Stanley E. Siegel (Stan)

Shareholder and Chair, Commercial Litigation Practice Group

Stan is a formidable advocate and adversary. He’s known for being forceful yet disarming —a potent combination when handling and favorably resolving complicated and contentious business matters for his clients.

Stan connects deeply with his clients and works hard to understand their business to provide honest, thorough, and creative advice to help them make the right decisions for their company. Stan has a unique ability to simplify complicated concepts for judges and juries and excels at finding solutions that balance multiple considerations, oftentimes involving communications, business strategies, reputation management, and other practical considerations.

When he’s not representing clients, Stan loves spending time with his children, traveling to visit family in the Netherlands, and running several marathons a year.
