Stephen V. Bush, Senior Associate

Stephen Bush is a Senior Associate with the firm in the Corporate and Technology law groups. His areas of concentration include corporate structure and transactions, development and implementation of corporate tax strategies and planning, technology transactions, financial technology, regulatory compliance, data and information security practices and privacy matters and policies.   Additionally, Stephen has extensive experience advising clients on a wide variety of intellectual property matters, including strategic IP planning for businesses, drafting IP licensing terms and shared arrangements, as well as full prosecution of trademark and copyright registration and due diligence.

With a strong entrepreneurial background in the technology and entertainment industry, and in conjunction with a passion for bringing life to new ideas and innovation, Stephen helps clients navigate their way to business success. Prior to joining the firm, Stephen successfully operated an independent law practice.

A lifelong musician, Stephen was born in Atlanta and later lived in Western North Carolina and New Orleans during undergrad and law school, where music and culture have historically been intertwined into a way of life as unique as it is American. Through these experiences, Stephen carries into his practice an understanding of the importance of diversity, passion, and artistry within any endeavor, and that nothing worthwhile ever comes to life without a mix of all three. These principles are what allows Stephen to help his clients discover what it is that motivates them, and through his broad technical knowledge and legal understanding he strives to help all his clients bring that motivation to life for the benefit of all.

Outside of the office Stephen enjoys playing music, tennis, golf, and hiking with his wife Susan and their dog Lexi.
