Stuart G. Stein

Chief Legal Officer and Partner
Washington, D.C.

Stuart G. Stein

Stuart Stein is the Chief Legal Officer of Hogan Lovells. In this role, Stuart is responsible for global oversight of our Office of General Counsel, including coordination of our general counsels in Washington, D.C. and London. Stuart's particular emphasis is on high-level strategic risk management, conflicts, and ethics. He also serves as lead legal advisor to both the Hogan Lovells Board and our International Management Committee.

In addition to serving as Chief Legal Officer, Stuart continues to advise selected clients on corporate matters as he has for more than 30 years. Formerly qualified as a Certified Public Accountant and the previous global co-head of the Hogan Lovells Corporate practice group, Stuart brings a rare perspective to boards and companies. As a trusted advisor to the boards of some of the largest companies in the world, he provides a calm, measured approach to achieve success during often-turbulent times. Stuart is particularly skilled in advising boards and management in developing strategies for addressing hostile and other attempts to derail corporate business plans.

Stuart is a regular speaker on national panels and programs that address corporate issues, particularly as they relate to board governance, compliance, audit committees, and fiduciary duty issues.

"Very sound judgment around the thornier issues,' is particularly highlighted by sources, who also note that 'he is a walking encyclopedia of knowledge and seems to have gone through everything before.'"
