Shearman And Sterling

Todd Stenerson is a partner in the firm’s Litigation practice.

Representing both plaintiffs and defendants throughout the courts of the U.S., Todd has played a leading role in matters of importance for decades. In addition to his extensive antitrust, multi-district litigation and arbitration experience, he has handled investigations by the U.S. Department of Justice’s Antitrust Division and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. As part of his complex commercial litigation background, he also has handled several dealer termination and RICO cases, as well as business torts, breach of contract and ERISA cases.

Most recently, Todd was recognized by Chambers & Partners, with clients noting that “he’s super smart and very strategic,” and “a great trial lawyer.”  AV-rated by Martindale-Hubbell and a BTI Client Service All-Star, Todd routinely garners praise from clients and colleagues for his creativity, litigation skills, and commitment to client service. In 2020 and 2021, Todd was recognized by Benchmark Litigation as a “National Practice Area Star” and a “Local Litigation Star.” Given his recent high-profile representations, he was also shortlisted by the publication for "Antitrust Litigator of the Year." Clients described Todd to Benchmark Litigation as “an incredibly smart and thoughtful trial lawyer.” Another notes, “with these big mega-cases, you think about trial or settlement, but Todd is taking depositions, making decisions, really thinking about how this is going to play out in trial. That’s not something you see every day.” Todd was also touted for his litigation skills by The Legal 500. In recent years, clients have recognized Todd as a “great antitrust lawyer with deep knowledge on the subject” and for being “amazingly talented, articulate, confident, and a tenacious fighter.”
