Stephen P. Fogerty
Top rated business litigation attorney in Westport, ConnecticutFLB Law
Stephen P. Fogerty is first and foremost a problem solver. For the last 35 years, he has zealously, ethically, and successfully represented hundreds of clients before judges and juries in every court in Connecticut, and successfully argued appeals in the Connecticut Appellate and Supreme Courts and the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. That experience informs his unique, thoughtful, and effective approach to solving his clients’ problems. Whether those problems relate to complex litigation within the courts or more nuanced disputes between business principals, neighbors or family members, his experience, reputation, tenacity and valuable connections in the legal world, government, and the community enable him to solve almost any legal problem one may encounter.
Steve knows that solving complex and oftentimes emotionally charged disputes requires a broad and deep understanding not only of the complexities of the law, but the realities of the business world and the motivations of the parties involved.
While proud of the recognition and confidence of his legal colleagues and the courts, he is most proud of the long-lasting client relationships he has established and maintained for more than 25 years.
When not practicing law, Steve enjoys reading, writing, cooking, and “fixing things.” Whether in the office or at home, he is always learning and creating, or deeply involved in solving a problem.
Steve is proud to be a member of the prestigious American College of Trial Lawyers and the American Board of Trial Advocates. He also has earned an AV Preeminent® Rating by Martindale-Hubbell, the highest peer-review rating in the legal industry that recognizes attorneys for their legal abilities and ethical standards and has been named to Connecticut Super Lawyers in the area of Business Litigation. He is a long-standing member of The American Inns of Court. In addition to being appointed and serving two terms on the Grievance Committee that handles all complaints of unethical conduct by attorneys in the Federal Court in Connecticut, Steve has served as pro bono trial counsel for parties in that court.
