Save current page as PDF

Stan is a dynamic and driven litigator with experience in a broad range of substantive law, including antitrust, bankruptcy, consumer banking regulation, healthcare administration, intellectual property, securities, and various business tort claims.

He splits his practice between complex commercial litigation and sensitive internal and regulatory investigations. Having represented domestic and international corporate clients of various sizes, Stan is particularly adept at identifying his clients’ specific needs and crafting strategic solutions. He has experience in all aspects of civil litigation, ranging from preliminary risk assessment through discovery to trial. In his investigative and regulatory work for consumer banking and other financial institution clients, Stan is a proven leader in both sprawling government regulatory work and more sensitive internal matters.

Stan maintains a very active pro bono practice, with a focus on the legal challenges faced by America’s veterans and, more recently, assisting Afghan refugees with asylum claims.

Prior to entering private practice, Stan clerked for the Honorable Joseph M. McLaughlin of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit from 2005 to 2007. After his clerkship, Stan joined Sullivan & Cromwell in New York, where he worked as a litigation associate from 2007 through 2012, at which point he returned home to Virginia and joined McGuireWoods.
