Lockridge Grindal Nauen P.L.L.P.
Stephen Owen is a busy young attorney. The University of Minnesota Law School graduate works primarily in Lockridge Grindal Nauen’s antitrust complex litigation area, but also works in the firm’s consumer fraud, data breach, and employment practice areas.
The last couple of years have seen him working on several high-profile cases, including In re Broiler Chicken Antitrust Litigation, scheduled for trial in September in Chicago. Owen is representing direct purchasers of broiler chicken products, alleging that producers of broiler chicken products conspired to reduce the output of products, thereby increasing the prices that direct purchasers paid for such products.
Owen’s work has included negotiating an evidentiary stipulation with a key defendant, identifying deposition testimony to be played at trial, and drafting motions in limine and other pretrial submissions.
But Owen is also a force when it comes to pro bono work and giving back to the Minneapolis legal community. He represents clients through the Minnesota Appellate Public Defender and the Pro Se Project of the U.S. District Court, District of Minnesota.
Additionally, Owen serves as the firm’s liaison to Twin Cities Diversity in Practice, a professional association of more than 70 law firms and corporate legal departments that develops programs and initiatives to help member organizations build a vibrant, diverse and inclusive legal community. He’s also a mentor of the organization’s 1L summer law clerks, helping them as they start their law careers.
If that weren’t enough, Owen’s also serving as the vice chair of the Federal Bar Association’s Antitrust and Trade Regulation Section, a national organization that advances antitrust goals and helps support antitrust lawyers throughout the United States.
