Bio/Research

George Triantis is an expert in the fields of contracts, commercial law, business law, and bankruptcy. He was the Eli Goldston Professor of Law at Harvard Law School before joining the Stanford faculty in 2011, and he has since then served as the Sullivan & Cromwell Visiting Professor of Law at Harvard.

Among his contributions to legal scholarship, Professor Triantis pioneered the application of options theory to the study of contracts and commercial law, and authored a series of articles that develop principles of contract design. His recent publications concern the link between contract design and dispute resolution, the design of legal remedies in commercial contracts, the impact of bargaining power on contract design, and the forces of disruption and innovation in transactional legal practice. He is also the coauthor of the book Foundations of Commercial Law (Foundation Press, 2009).
