Stephanie E. Niehaus

Squire Patton Boggs LLP

New York, NY, USA


Stephanie Niehaus has broad experience in state and federal courts throughout the US in complex litigation involving products liability and toxic and mass tort claims, commercial contract disputes, and financial services and business-restructuring matters.

In her more than 10 years with Squire Patton Boggs, Stephanie has devoted considerable attention to products liability and toxic and mass tort litigation matters. Her experience in this area ranges from working with a multi-firm team of lawyers in defending a major pharmaceutical company in multidistrict products liability litigation involving serious personal injury claims, to the successful resolution through mediation of a hard metals lung disease lawsuit against a specialty chemicals supplier. Stephanie also has significant experience in defending claims involving alleged exposures to asbestos and benzene, including the successful defense of two separate wrongful death mesothelioma cases on behalf of a wire and cable manufacturer, both resulting in unanimous defense verdicts. She has successfully prepared and argued numerous motions for summary judgment on asbestos-related claims including, most recently, an asbestos-related intentional tort claim under Ohio’s new intentional tort statute. She also has provided strategic guidance to clients facing novel theories of tort liability such as premises liability, apparent manufacturer liability and medical monitoring claims.

Stephanie has advised and defended clients in a wide variety of complex commercial matters across multiple industries, including oil and gas, chemicals and financial services. Her recent experience in this area includes the defense of a Fortune 500 chemicals company in a protracted breach of contract dispute involving potentially disruptive technology, in which she was actively involved in developing and implementing both pre-trial and trial strategies.

Her experience in the area of business restructuring-related litigation extends from the representation of both debtors and creditors in adversary proceedings, to her active involvement in the defense of former officers and directors of a bankrupt steel manufacturer in litigation initiated by a committee of administrative claimants. Stephanie also has experience representing mortgage lenders in complex foreclosures and related proceedings.
