Julia Strickland has been selected by the Daily Journal as one of the top 75 Women Litigators in California. A partner at Stroock & Stroock & Lavan LLP, Ms. Strickland's practice focuses on the defense of class actions and other complex commercial actions. Her notable accomplishments include a major ruling under the California Consumers Legal Remedies Act in Berry v. American Express. Berry held that credit card issuers may not be sued under the statute, and the decision has been interpreted broadly in other cases to hold that transactions for "money or credit" generally -- all lending activity -- are not regulated by the statute.
Of note is the fact that Ms. Strickland began her legal career at Stroock in 1977. In addition to being a member of the Firm's National Executive Committee, she has played a central role in development of the firm's Los Angeles office.
