In addition, Stephen represented Mitsui and other clients in international joint ventures/cross border transactions involving new media, overseas manufacture and the import and export of various high-tech and other products.
Before joining Mitsui Stephen worked as an associate at Peabody & Brown in Boston and Golenbock & Barell in New York, focusing on private placements and securities work for private and publicly held entities.
