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.

AV Preeminent-rated by Martindale-Hubbell and a BTI Client Service All-Star, Todd routinely garners praise from clients, peers, the judiciary and industry leading publications. Most recently, Todd was again ranked by Chambers & Partners, with sources noting that “he’s extremely knowledgeable and he’s very good on his feet as an oral advocate.” In each of the last three years, Benchmark Litigation has shortlisted him for “Antitrust Litigator of the Year” in addition to naming him both a “National Practice Area Star” and a “Local Litigation Star.” He has also been touted for his litigation skills by The Legal 500. Clients have described Todd to these publications as being “very strategic” and “a great trial lawyer” who is “amazingly talented, articulate, confident, and a tenacious fighter.” Recognized for his versatility and ability to adapt to the needs of a given situation, clients also note that he is “very collaborative” and that, 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.”
