Stanley Santire calls upon four decades of experience in construction and employment litigation to seek fair, expeditious results in mediations and arbitrations.
After serving as a line officer in the U.S. Navy, Stanley started his legal practice in construction litigation. From there, he was retained as the chief legal counsel for Lockheed Aircraft International, AG, where he represented the company in a broad range of matters, including the mediation and arbitration of international disputes; structured joint ventures; guided compliance with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act; negotiated contracts; and provided counseling in transactions involving the laws and business practices of various countries, including the United States, United Kingdom, Switzerland, Saudi Arabia, Greece, Iraq, Japan, United Arab Emirates, and Yemen. His management of disputes in Europe and the Middle East earned him recognition as the Outstanding Executive of the Year.
A frequent speaker and author, Stanley’s primary areas of focus include:
- Construction, including mechanic’s and materialman’s liens, liability, delay clauses, and trade secrets and restrictive covenants
- Employment, including harassment, reasonable accommodation and the Americans with Disabilities Act, non-competes and more
