Julia B. Strickland Recognized as "Lawyer of the Year" by Los Angeles Business Journal in Inaugural "Leaders in Law" Awards
Julia B. Strickland, managing partner of Stroock's Los Angeles office and chair of our Financial Services/Class Action Practice Group, has been recognized by the Los Angeles Business Journal as "Lawyer of the Year" as part of their inaugural "Leaders in Law" awards.
Ms. Strickland's award is of special note as she was one of only two winners in the competitive "31-75 attorneys in Los Angeles" category. Overall, there were over 320 nominations submitted across all categories. In profiling Ms. Strickland, the Los Angeles Business Journal noted that "when major financial services companies and retailers are targets of multi-state class actions that put them at risk of losing not only millions of customers but costing them billions of dollars, they often rely on Julia B. Strickland to counsel and defend them."
This is the first year that the Los Angeles Business Journal has prepared the "Leaders in Law" awards in conjunction with the top In-House Counsel list. According to the publication, this "is an opportunity to celebrate the outstanding work performed by the remarkable individuals and teams of attorneys that form the in-house counsels for Los Angeles businesses, while also honoring the leading light attorneys at the many terrific law firms of the region."
