Who We Are.

Stris & Maher is run by five partners who are lifelong friends. After attending Harvard Law School, we spent years honing our craft in private practice, government, academia, and corporate America before joining forces to establish a law firm based on three core principles:

We hire only the brightest legal minds.

Our team consists of exceptional professionals. And while we are growing to meet the needs of our clients, our low ratio of junior to senior lawyers ensures that every matter receives the full benefit of our partners' experience and expertise.

We only take cases where we can add value.

Our firm adds the most value in complex and high-stakes engagements. Not only are we adept at understanding complicated facts and law, but we are uniquely skilled at figuring out what matters to win. It is no coincidence that our cases are regularly in the news.

We pursue compensation arrangements that reward success.

Our experience, skills, and results are comparable to those of elite practice groups at large firms. Our compensation arrangements are not. Instead of leveraging the work of many junior attorneys, we seek to profit from partial contingencies, success bonuses, and other creative solutions that reward efficiency and success. We like win-wins.  

What We Do.

Before litigation, at trial, and on appeal, we offer expertise and judgment that our clients can rely on in virtually any area of law. Our method is simple:

We figure things out.

We are fast learners. We can quickly master any fact pattern in virtually any substantive area or industry. And because we get to the bottom of every case, we provide extraordinary visibility into the future along with a unique ability to shape it.

We craft a plan.

We think deeply to develop innovative and effective strategies for our clients. For us, every case is unique because every client is unique. We work with our clients to analyze the risks that are relevant to them, and we tailor solutions to meet their specific business objectives.

We tell the story.

We can both inform and persuade. We know how to present the right narrative for our audience. From the boardroom to the courtroom, we speak in a way that will resonate with our listeners. And we think that our record speaks for itself.

Who We Serve.

Our clients are remarkably diverse. We represent corporate, government, law firm, and individual clients in a wide range of business disputes. Some are plaintiffs, some are defendants, and some retain us to resolve potential conflicts before they result in litigation. The firm's clients share a common trait: they want innovative and effective solutions tailored to their specific objectives.
