Steven P. Handler represents clients on a wide range of commercial litigation matters, including product liability/mass torts, antitrust, securities, intellectual property, environmental, consumer fraud, construction and professional design malpractice, and employment discrimination. Steven has extensive trial experience in jury and non-jury cases.
Steven formerly served in the criminal and special prosecutions divisions of the US Attorney's Office in Chicago. Since leaving that office, he has defended individuals and companies in white-collar criminal cases. One of these defenses included the corrugated contained criminal antitrust case, one of the largest antitrust criminal prosecutions ever brought by the Department of Justice. He represented one of the nine defendants who went to trial in that case and were acquitted after a three-and-one-half-month trial.
Steven has extensive experience in alternative dispute resolution. For example, he represented a national engineering firm in a summary jury trial that ultimately led to the settlement of a $380 million damage claim relating to a nuclear power plant near Cincinnati.
During law school, Steven was topics and comment editor of the Law Review.
