March 2, 2011

HOUSTON – Houston attorney Steven Mitby from the complex commercial litigation law firm of Ahmad, Zavitsanos, Anaipakos, Alavi & Mensing P.C. has earned a spot on the 2011 Texas Rising Stars list, which honors the best and brightest Texas lawyers under age 40 and those in practice fewer than 10 years.

Mr. Mitby, who represents both plaintiffs and defendants in a wide variety of complex litigation matters, was selected based on nominations made by attorneys from across the state who previously were honored in the annual Texas Super Lawyers list.

“We at AZA are proud of Steve’s intellect, zeal, and enthusiasm for helping our clients get the best results,” says John Zavitsanos, name partner in AZA. “This year, he’s already won a trial in a shareholder lawsuit where the other side was represented by one of the best trial lawyers in Houston.”

The Rising Stars list appears in the April 2011 issues of Texas Monthly magazine and Texas Rising Stars, a publication from Thomson Reuters’ legal division.

Mr. Mitby, a summa cum laude graduate of Harvard College and cum laude graduate of Harvard Law School, has a special interest in patent infringement and other technology-related litigation. He has worked as trial counsel in three patent trials and authored a winning federal circuit brief.

Formerly with Baker Botts, Mr. Mitby also represents clients in insurance coverage disputes, securities class actions, products liability cases, construction litigation, oil and gas litigation, trademark infringement cases, internal corporate investigations, and appeals.

Ahmad, Zavitsanos, Anaipakos, Alavi & Mensing P.C. is a Houston-based law firm that is home to true courtroom lawyers with a formidable track record in complex commercial litigation, including energy, intellectual property, securities fraud, construction, and business dispute cases. AZA is one of only 32 firms in the U.S. to be recognized as “awesome opponents” in a nationwide poll of corporate general counsel who were asked to name the law firms they hope their companies never have to face in court. In fact, AZA has been hired on many occasions by the same companies the firm has prevailed against at trial. More information about the firm can be found at https://www.azalaw.com/.
