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 returned from time to time 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 process of business negotiations, 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. His other writings include analysis of business bankruptcy process and the book Foundations of Commercial Law (Foundation Press, 2009).
Professor Triantis was the Associate Dean for Research at Stanford and faculty co-director of the Stanford Cyber Initiative from 2014 to 2017. His other service roles outside Stanford have included past editor of the Journal of Law & Economics and past director of the American Law & Economics Association. He is an elected member of the American Law Institute and a member of the American Academy of Arts & Sciences.
