Bio |

Steve’s practice focuses on mass tort, business, banking and finance, and antitrust litigation.  He also is experienced in advising early stage business in such matters as business organization, corporate governance, intellectual property, employment law, contracts and licensing.  Among career highlights, since 2008 he has represented 400+ plaintiffs on claims against power companies for wildfire losses in California and Utah, which have resulted in settlements in excess of $150 million for his clients.  Prior to that, he was co-lead counsel for Caldera in its landmark monopolization case against Microsoft, the first major private antitrust action against the software giant, which settled for $280 million.

Following the Caldera case, he took a four-year hiatus from law practice working for a supercomputing company called Linux Networx, where he served as first as VP of Business Development and eventually as President and CEO.  During his stint as CEO, Linux Networx successfully delivered one of the five fastest supercomputers in the world to Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and grew from $5 million to over $30 million in annual revenue.

He was a co-founder of the Ragnar Relay Series, a long distance running relay series.  Before he sold his interest, the company launched events in Utah, Minnesota, Arizona, Washington, Maryland, California and New York.  Today Ragnar is the largest relay series in the world, presenting 40 events in locations throughout the United States.

For the past few years Steve has been involved in several projects in Africa.  He owns an interest in the Nashera Hotels in Morogoro and Dodoma, Tanzania.  He has been engaged in humanitarian projects in Tanzania with the Colom Foundation, including programs in law and nursing.  Most recently, he founded and serves on the board of the Partnering Institute of Africa, a non-profit corporation.

For several years, Steve served on the BYU Law School Alumni Board, including a year as president.  In that capacity he initiated and spearheaded fundraising for the establishment of a program in Law and Entrepreneurship at BYU Law School. He has a B.A. in degree in economics and German from BYU, and has done graduate work in economics.

Steve is listed in Best Lawyers in America for Commercial Litigation, Litigation – Antitrust, Litigation – Banking and Finance, Litigation – Intellectual Property, and Litigation – Mergers and Acquisitions.  He has been rated AV Preeminent by Martindale-Hubbel, and has been recognized as a Mountain States Super Lawyers for mass tort litigation.  Best Lawyers named him Antitrust Lawyer of Year in Utah for 2015, and Banking and Finance Litigation Lawyer of the year in Utah for 2016.

He is currently admitted to practice in Utah and California, and has also been admitted in Washington State.
