How Stan Helps Clients

As an associate in the firm’s Corporate Finance and Technology group, Stan’s practice focuses upon a variety of corporate matters across several industries. Prior to joining Buchanan, Stan worked at a local financial services corporation where he engaged with the entity’s commercial real estate portfolio, drafting documents to facilitate the acquisition, disposal, and continuing operation of bank properties. Furthermore, Stan drafted the entity’s first formal policies and procedures for real estate transactions.

While earning his J.D. at Duquesne University School of Law, Stan interned for the Honorable Judge Robert J. Colville, served as a research assistant to Professor Steven Baicker-McKee, and was actively involved as a member of the law school’s Appellate Moot Court Board and Law Review. Stan’s Appellate Moot Court Board teams won “Best Brief” awards at back-to-back competitions.

At Duquesne, Stan exhibited academic excellence, graduating #1 in his class. Stan is a recipient of 12 CALI Excellence for the Future Awards, given to the student with the top grade in a particular law school class, earning them in subjects such as Legal Research & Writing; Corporate Governance, Compliance & Risk Management; Federal Income Taxation; Civil Procedure; Criminal Law; Property; Torts; and Advanced Constitutional Law. In May of 2021, Stan was awarded the John & Liz Murray Award for Excellence in Student Scholarship, presented to a graduating student whose published Duquesne Law Review article is deemed by faculty advisors to be the most outstanding work of scholarship published in the past year. 

What Clients Can Expect

Stan strives to provide clients with thorough, personal representation characterized by friendly, fair, and forthright communication. Stan creates value for clients by understanding the complex intersections between business problems and legal solutions. Comprehension of the economic and strategic aims of a business clarifies the optimal legal approach.

In addition to a tireless blue-collar work ethic learned from sweeping the floors of his father’s plumbing shop as a teenager, Stan’s active listening to client concerns, enthusiasm, and intellectual curiosity are hallmarks of his representation.

Each day, I serve clients by listening carefully, engaging thoroughly, and understanding my role in providing efficient legal solutions to the challenges of 21st century businesses.
