Biography

Wherever major investment funds are putting money to work — whether the arena is public or private, equity or debt, mezzanine or hedge fund — Steven Siesser plays a prominent role. As co-chair of the firm's Transactions & Advisory Group, Steven actively represents investors, target companies, and intermediaries, such as investment banks and high-net-worth individuals, in all manner of sophisticated transactions. He often serves officially as their outside general counsel and unofficially as their trusted business and legal advisor, providing them with much-needed perspective on the universe of challenges they face.

Steven's clients know that he is totally focused on their interests. He is very much a hands-on, "working partner" who gets deeply involved in the details of the deals he arranges. Not content simply to point out problems, he finds ways to fix them — to get the deal done without getting bogged down in what he calls "lawyer minutiae." He is available anytime, not just to answer his clients' questions but also to answer what "they're not asking, but should be." He always refers to them as "we" and "us," which sums up, in a way, his role as a key member of their inner circle.

Steven is also known as a consummate networker. Interacting with clients, colleagues, and his many investor and business contacts, his expressed purpose is to "put people together to achieve great outcomes" — which happens with impressive regularity.

In June 1899, 74 attorneys launched NJSBA in Atlantic City; annual dues were $5.00.[2] Within the next decade, the Canon of Ethics was adopted by the NJSBA and the Committee on Law Reform, aimed at improving the practice of law and administration of justice in NJ, was formed. Over the years, NJSBA supported the establishment of a Judicial Council to study the problem of an increase in court cases, the replacement of the New Jersey Court of Errors and Appeals with a Supreme Court, and the repeal of Prohibition.
