Angela Agrusa ’84, managing partner of DLA Piper’s Los Angeles offices, was named to the Los Angeles Business Journal’s 2021 Women of Influence: Attorneys list, honoring Los Angeles’s most influential women attorneys.
The list recognizes lawyers for their “exceptional legal skill and achievement across the full spectrum of responsibility, exemplary leadership as evidenced by the highest professional and ethical standards, and for contributions to the Los Angeles community at large.” In its profile of Agrusa, the publication noted her handling of “high-stake matters that command headlines and shape legal precedent,” as well as her record of successfully defending clients in more than 50 putative class actions with combined potential exposure of over $100 billion.
Agrusa, who also serves as co-chair of DLA Piper’s food and beverage subsector, tries high-stakes complex commercial, class action and civil cases on behalf of international brands, major companies and prominent individuals. Agrusa has represented her clients in a wide variety of complex disputes with hundreds of millions of dollars at stake, including brand and individual reputation defense, business torts, consumer fraud and false labeling, competitor false advertising, unfair competition and privacy. She also maintains a sophisticated class action practice, strategically defeating class certification in single and multi-district litigation across the country.
