For eight consecutive years, St. Louis Partner Bettina Strauss has been named one of the nation’s top women in litigation. Her recent recognition as one of Benchmark’s Top 250 Women in Litigation involved several phases of research including case work, peer review and client feedback.

Strauss led Bryan Cave’s Product Liability Group from 2006 to 2014. She focuses her practice on the defense of companies facing liability in connection with products in all types of proceedings including consolidated actions, MDL proceedings and class actions. She has a national practice, defending cases in state and federal courts across the country from New Jersey to California. Her cases routinely involve multi-million dollar risk in some of the most difficult venues in the country, including three well known trial courts in her home area: the City of St. Louis, Missouri and Madison and St. Clair Counties in Illinois.

Now in its 12th year of publication, Benchmark exclusively covers the litigation and disputes market in North America, covering the US, Canada, Latin America and, most recently, Europe and the Asia-Pacific region.
