Stephen is an attorney with trainED who focuses in the areas of higher education and employment law. He trains and counsels colleges and universities on a broad range of higher education compliance issues, including sexual harassment and nondiscrimination, Title IX, the Clery Act, VAWA, FERPA, faculty issues, and student affairs matters.  The purpose of these trainings goes beyond checking the compliance boxes; it is intended to provide advice that is practical and accessible for those who are discharging these responsibilities on campus day-in and day-out.

As a principal at Gray Plant Mooty (bio), Stephen has extensive experience conducting Title IX compliance reviews and internal and compliance investigations and audits involving alleged sexual and other misconduct, policy violations, discrimination, harassment, retaliation, and hazing.  He has also represented corporations and higher education institutions in investigations conducted by Congress, the Department of Justice, United States attorneys and attorneys general of numerous states, and other state and federal agencies.  Stephen also regularly advises clients on a wide range of employment issues including terminations, employment and severance agreements, employment-related claims, worker classification, covenants against competition, breach of duty, breach of contract, and tortious interference.
