Turner Padget is pleased to announce that Frank Stern, associate in the firm’s Greenville office, has been named as one of Greenville Business Magazine’s 2021 Best & Brightest 35 and Under – an elite group of young professionals who are making a difference in their workplace and community. Now in its 27th year, the annual Best & Brightest 35 and Under award celebrates the men and women who are rising stars in the Greenville business community. Stern will be honored at an event on September 23 at Southern Bleachery and is profiled in the September issue of Greenville Business Magazine. The full list of award recipients can be found here.
As a member of the Litigation Team, Stern served as first chair in nearly 20 jury trials – most of which have resulted in complete defense verdict trials. While the vast majority of cases filed in Greenville County never make it to the courtroom, he has led up to six jury trials each year for the last several years. Stern represents national insurance carriers, leading trucking and transportation companies, and other businesses in courtrooms across upstate South Carolina, including Greenville County. He focuses his practice on defending clients in insurance disputes; product liability, personal injury and premises liability suits; and construction litigation.
Stern co-chairs the firm’s Associate Committee. In this role, he organizes Continuing Legal Education programs and social events, mentors other associates, and serves as a liaison to the firm’s partner and Executive Committee.
Stern earned his undergraduate degree from Clemson University and his law degree from the University of South Carolina School of Law.
