As a litigator, Ben’s first priority is to advise clients in a manner that keeps them out of the courtroom so that they can effectively predict and manage the cost of legal services. Ben has a diverse practice representing regional banks, private businesses, and non-profit entities in litigation and pre-litigation disputes. He has negotiated resolutions of commercial lease disputes, breach of contract claims, partnership disputes, construction defect claims, insurance and bad-faith claims. Prior to joining Steptoe & Johnson, Ben practiced with the law firm of McBrayer, McGinnis, Leslie & Kirkland, PLLC in Louisville, Kentucky.
