Stephen R. Hernick
Stephen is a Senior Associate in the firm's Business Litigation group. He has extensive experience in the various phases of civil litigation, including: managing discovery, complex legal research, depositions, motion practice, and trial preparation.
Stephen also has experience with white-collar crime, conducting sensitive internal investigations for large corporations, and representing companies and individuals that are the targets of government investigations.
Prior to joining Frost Brown Todd, Stephen was an Associate with Ropes & Gray in Boston, Massachusetts.
Stephen helped a large pharmaceutical company accused of promoting products for off-label uses reach a favorable settlement with a qui tam relator.
Successfully represented, on a pro-bono basis, a woman from El Salvador seeking political asylum in the United States due to gang-related threats. Despite almost universally unfavorable precedent in this area, Stephen was able to argue how the client's case was different than the multitude of unsuccessful gang-related asylum applications.
