Profile

Stephen Feldman concentrates his practice in complex litigation, antitrust and appeals. He partners with businesses on their most important legal matters, and his approach emphasizes teamwork, efficiency, creative thinking and attention to detail.

Stephen's recent experiences include successfully representing government agencies in federal and state antitrust litigation, defeating claims of unfair and deceptive trade practices in state and federal court, and defending shareholders in corporate-control disputes.

A significant portion of Stephen’s practice involves matters in the North Carolina Business Court. The Business Court recently appointed Stephen to lead a committee that rewrote the court's rules. Stephen has served on the leadership of the North Carolina Bar Association's Antitrust and Complex Business Disputes Section, and he is the chair of the association's Appellate Practice Section. From 2015-18, he led the American Bar Association's Appellate Practice Committee.

Stephen regularly writes and speaks on issues related to complex litigation, including the law on unfair and deceptive trade practices and techniques for clear legal writing.

Prior to joining Robinson Bradshaw, Stephen practiced at Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner LLP in St. Louis and Ellis & Winters LLP in Raleigh.
