SAN FRANCISCO (April 16, 2007)—Thelen Reid Brown Raysman & Steiner LLP continues to grow its core practice areas on the West Coast with the addition of partner Ruth Strauss, who joins the firm’s growing Business and Finance department in San Francisco.

Ms. Strauss is a senior lawyer whose practice focuses on asset securitization and complex financial transactions. She brings a depth of experience with rating agencies and her representation of issuers, underwriters, banks, placement agents, conduits, and liquidity and enhancement providers in transactions involving a wide variety of asset classes.

In her career, Ms. Strauss has handled vehicle and equipment leases and loans, tobacco settlement proceeds, cell site tower rent reduction contacts, railcars, toll revenues, hospital revenues, and mortgage and manufactured housing-backed securities. 

Ms. Strauss is a 1985 graduate of Duke University School of Law in Durham, NC, and also holds a degree, cum laude, from Rice University in Houston, Texas.

This, week, IP partner Aaron Wininger also joins the firm’s Shanghai office from Squire Sanders & Dempsey LLP. Four lateral partners have joined the firm in California and China within the past two weeks.
