Stacy's aggressive approach to discovery and trial preparation has resulted in favorable judgments and settlements for a wide array of sophisticated commercial clients. His national practice emphasizes intellectual property litigation (on behalf of both alleged infringers and IP owners), defense of media companies and news organizations against defamation and privacy tort claims, defense of managed care companies in claims arising from complex provider contracts, and other commercial lawsuits and arbitrations alleging breach of contract, unfair trade practices, fraud, and other business torts. His cases often involve claims in the tens of millions of dollars or more and include class actions and federal MDL proceedings. Stacy works closely with clients to identify their business goals and develop strategies aimed at achieving those goals, not merely some abstract litigation "result." Since most high-exposure cases are now resolved through mediation, Stacy places a priority on developing and exploiting favorable evidence early to create leverage and achieve cost-effective and advantageous settlements. Stacy received his B.A., summa cum laude
, from the University of Southern California and his J.D. from Yale Law School.
