If the name Cyrus Mehri rings a bell, it’s for good reason. The founding partner of Mehri & Skalet PLLC has litigated some of the most high-profile discrimination, corporate fraud, and civil and consumer rights cases in America. 

He was in the middle of two of the largest race discrimination class actions in history, going up against Texaco in 1997 and Coca-Cola in 2001, which settled for $176 million and $192.5 million, respectively. Additionally, Mehri was instrumental in getting the NFL to establish its so-called Rooney Rule, requiring the league to interview at least one minority candidate for head coaching and general manager roles.
