Stris & Maher LLP

Peter Stris is the founding partner of Stris & Maher LLP, a roughly 20-lawyer litigation boutique that represents clients in novel and high-stakes business disputes. Based in Los Angeles, Stris leads the firm’s nationwide trial and appellate practice. Over his 20-year career, he has successfully first-chaired a wide variety of bet-the-farm business cases to verdict or judgment. He has also handled dozens of high-profile business appeals, including 10 he personally argued before the U.S. Supreme Court.

Over the past 12 months, Stris delivered his clients major wins across all levels of the judiciary. Among his successes has been his recent work defending a $100+ million Lanham Act case through jury verdict, bench trial, appeal, and remand proceedings. Another recent success was his work persuading the Ninth Circuit to revive environmental claims against Volkswagen which the automaker told the courts will subject it to over $11 billion in liability.
