Steven GrovesBernard and Barbara Lomas Senior Research Fellow,
Margaret Thatcher Center for Freedom

Steven Groves is the Bernard and Barbara Lomas Fellow at The Heritage Foundation's Margaret Thatcher Center for Freedom.

Groves is responsible for developing and running the "Freedom Project," part of Heritage's Leadership for America campaign. The project's goal is to advance the cause of protecting American sovereignty, self-governance and independence while promoting Anglo-American leadership on issues relating to international political and religious freedom, human rights, and the strengthening of democratic institutions.

Since joining Heritage in 2007, Groves has testified before Congress and has appeared on ABC, CNBC, CNN, National Public Radio, Voice of America, Al Jazeera, Al Hurra, and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.

From 2003 to 2006, Groves was senior counsel to the U.S. Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations. While there, he played a lead role in the subcommittee's investigation into the United Nations "Oil-for-Food" scandal, the most extensive congressional investigation ever conducted into a U.N. program.

Prior to that, Groves was an associate at Boies, Schiller & Flexner, LLP from 2000 to 2003, practicing complex commercial litigation. He also served as an Assistant Attorney General for the State of Florida from 1995 to 1999, where he litigated civil rights cases, constitutional law issues, criminal appeals, and a wide range of other matters in trial and appellate courts at both the state and federal level.

Groves earned a law degree from the Ohio Northern University College of Law in 1995 and a degree in history from Florida State University in 1992.
