Miller Canfield Adds Two Lawyers in Chicago

July 13, 2015

The law firm of Miller Canfield announces that it is expanding its Chicago office again with the addition of two of counsel lawyers – Sanford (Sandy) Stein and Bernard (Bernie) Peter -- from Chicago-based Kubasiak, Fylstra, Thorpe & Rotunno, P.C. (KFTR). Sandy Stein brings over 35 years of experience in government-relations, land use, and environmental law to the firm’s Energy, Environmental and Regulatory Group. Bernie Peter brings over 30 years of experience in employee benefits law to the Corporate Group.

“We’re pleased to have Sandy and Bernie join our team in Chicago. They have impressive experience in their respective areas of the law and will be a great resource for clients,” said Michael P. McGee, CEO, Miller Canfield. 

Sandy Stein has extensive experience in zoning, land use, infrastructure development, public finance, government regulations and public-private partnership economic development. He began his career with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and today counsels clients on the environmental and energy aspects of mergers, acquisitions and property matters, as well as day-to-day operational matters and finding means for implementation of alternative energy systems. He also is active in international trade matters, particularly in China. He received his J.D. from George Washington Law School and his B.A. from the University of Illinois. 

Bernie Peter has worked on virtually all employee benefits/ERISA compliance and regulatory issues for a diverse group of businesses in his extensive career (including being assistant general counsel for Marshall Field & Company), as well as handling executive compensation matters. He received his J.D. from the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law and his B.A. from College of the Holy Cross. 

In June, Miller Canfield added 10 lawyers from KFTR, as well as public finance lawyer Maribel Mata Benedict from Katten. The new additions join environmental lawyer Lawrence W. Falbe from Quarles & Brady and labor lawyer Amy J. Zdravecky from Franczek Radelet.
