Stuart G. Stein

Stuart Stein has been advising clients on corporate matters 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 primarily represents large public companies in a variety of corporate and securities matters, such as compliance, corporate governance (including proxy contests and other hostile stockholder matters), mergers and acquisitions, and public capital markets. He also handles all manner of SEC and other governmental regulatory interactions.

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. He's particularly skilled in advising boards and management in developing strategies for addressing hostile and other attempts to derail corporate business plans.

"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.'"
