Additionally, founding partner Peter Stris was one of the 71 lawyers personally ranked in this category. This year, Chambers remarked that:
The “very skilled and effective” Peter Stris possesses a prominent appellate practice across a number of state and federal courts nationwide. He represents both plaintiffs and defendants in a range of constitutional and business disputes, including media-related litigation. Clients praise his “meticulous preparation,” adding: “The tenacity with which he prepares is outstanding. He has complete mastery of the facts.”
Mr. Stris was also ranked this year as one of the top 33 appellate lawyers based in California, with Chambers writing:
