Robert A. Stern has joined Derrevere Stevens Black & Cozad (“DSB&C”) as a Subrogation Partner, and will manage its New York and New Jersey offices. His former New York/New Jersey subrogation group will be joining him at DSB&C. Robert was formerly a shareholder, Board of Director and Chair of Clausen’s Miller’s Subrogation group. Robert presently serves as Vice President of the National Association of Subrogation Professionals.
Robert has a national and international practice focusing on subrogation claims. He has also handled appellate, coverage and defense cases. Robert’s assignments run the full spectrum of subrogation claims. He expertly handled thousands of claims for his clients and consistently achieves successful results.
Robert stated: “I am so happy and excited to join DSB&C. I have worked with them as co-counsel on a variety of claims for many years, and also interacted with their attorneys at NASP events. I was impressed with their legal skills, support of their attorneys, growth of their law firm, a real understanding of subrogation clients’ needs, and operating in a manner which reflects the best interests of their subrogation clients.” According to Robert: “Joining DSB&C will allow me to fully support my subrogation clients and successfully pursue their recovery goals in this post-Covid world.” Robert continued: “With its deep bench, 3 times larger than my former group, DSB&C enhances and compliments my existing subrogation practice, which at the forefront remains providing clients with the best possible recoveries and top-level service. Further, with my experience and team, we will be able to supplement and work with DSB&C’s existing subrogation team in helping its present clients’ recovery goals.”
DSB&C Managing Partner, Michael B. Stevens, said: “Robert Stern is one of the preeminent subrogation attorneys in the country. It’s not every day that you get to sign a subrogation all-star to the team. I feel a little bit like Pat Riley when he convinced Lebron James to take his talents to South Beach. With the addition of Robert and his team, DSB&C’s subrogation practice group has taken a giant leap forward in its ability to provide the highest level of legal services to its clients around the world. It’s difficult to see a ceiling on how high the firm’s subrogation department can fly with Robert on the team. These are indeed exciting times.”
Robert received his JD from Boston University School of Law, and a BA (and recognition for completing the degree requirements for a BS) from Union College.
