Dan Stephenson Profiled in Metropolitan Corporate Counsel

Los Angeles-Based Litigator Discusses Launch of Dykema National Trial Team, Rise in Consumer Fraud Cases and Importance of Pro Bono Work

March 21, 2014

Dan Stephenson, Los Angeles-based member and leader of Dykema’s newly-launched National Trial Team, is the subject of an extensive profile in the April 2014 issue of Metropolitan Corporate Counsel, a monthly publication distributed to more than 30,000 top-tier executives (chief legal officers, general counsel) in the law departments of major U.S. companies.

In the article—“A Champion Litigator Shares His Secrets”—Stephenson offers his perspective on a wide variety of subjects that range from Dykema’s just-launched National Trial Team (an initiative that Stephenson created and serves as its inaugural leader), the dramatic rise in consumer fraud cases (a nationwide phenomenon, but particularly so in California), the impact social media has had on litigation, the importance of pro bono work (“seeing how one client’s life has been changed has given me a renewed motivation for my law practice”) and two outside interests—competitive swimming and fiction writing—that enable Stephenson to channel his competitive and creative energies.
