Managing Partner, Los Angeles Office
Stroock & Stroock & Lavan LLP
As chair of Stroock’s Financial Services Litigation, Regulation and Enforcement Group, a member of Stroock’s national Executive Committee and managing partner of its Los Angeles office, Julia Strickland is often the first attorney called when a financial services company needs anything from practical guidance to the fierce defense of contentious and high-stakes litigation and regulatory enforcement matters. She also is routinely sought out for counseling on federal and state regulatory compliance matters and the full range of issues arising from lending and servicing, retail banking, real estate and unfair and deceptive practices.
Strickland represents various BMW entities as well as Mercedes-Benz in a series of separate individual and putative class actions filed in state and federal courts in late 2021 and early 2022, alleging that the automobile manufacturers and finance companies are violating California antitrust and unfair practices laws, among other laws.
