Samuel Stubbs

Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP

Samuel E. Stubbs maintains a practice focused on complex litigation, with an emphasis on commercial disputes, class actions, intellectual property (patents), environmental and bankruptcy. He is experienced in matters relating to extra-contractual liability, corporate environmental liabilities and international sovereign immunity.

Sam has served as lead trial counsel in cases involving commercial fraud, business torts, alleged kickbacks, intellectual property, adversary proceedings in bankruptcy, class action litigation, Superfund liability and multinational mass tort.

Sam has represented major oil and gas and chemical companies in a variety of international commercial disputes, technology companies in patent litigation, and financial institutions in commodity, lender liability and indentured trustee litigation.

For 40 years, Sam has balanced a complex commercial practice (both plaintiff and defendant) with a class-action mass tort defense practice. Thus, he has remained a true “hired gun,” handling litigation involving contract disputes, patent litigation bankruptcy (adversary proceedings), construction, chemical and petrochemical environmental claims, real estate, arson, fidelity bonds, oil and gas, securities, shareholders derivative actions, union lockouts, tortious interference, defamation, fraud, RICO, grand jury investigations, alleged oilfield kickbacks, and Superfund cleanups.
