Biography

Christopher J. Stevens is an Associate in the Albany, New York, office of Jackson Lewis P.C. His practice focuses on representing employers in all phases of litigation. Mr. Stevens also provides advice and counseling to help clients navigate the increasingly complex legal aspects of the employer-employee relationship. 

Mr. Stevens is a passionate advocate who genuinely enjoys working with clients to understand their legal challenges and develop practical solutions. He understands that there is no “one size fits all” solution to any legal challenge and makes a concerted effort to understand each client’s industry, business, risk tolerance, and other relevant factors before developing tailored solutions that account for each client’s unique situation. 

Mr. Stevens has experience representing employers in both class actions and single-plaintiff litigation before numerous state and federal courts. He also regularly represents employers of all sizes in administrative proceedings before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the New York State Division of Human Rights and the National Labor Relations Board.

While attending law school, Mr. Stevens was a member of the editorial board of the Albany Law Review and the Moot Court Executive Board. Mr. Stevens was also the champion of the Karen K. McGovern Senior Prize Trials, a competition that tests the oral advocacy skills of third-year law students.
