Chambers and Partners, a London-based legal ranking service, today ranked the Joseph Saveri Law Firm “Band 1” (highest ranking) in its “Antitrust: Mainly Plaintiff—California” category. The Firm was the only one in California to receive this honor.
Chambers recognized the Firm as “esteemed for securing significant victories in monopolization, price-fixing and pay-for-delay cases.” It found it to be “among the top plaintiffs’ firms in the country; a very well-known firm that shows up in important cases.”
Chambers also ranked Firm partners Joseph Saveri and Steven Williams as “Band 1” attorneys in its “Antitrust: Plaintiff—USA—Nationwide” and “Antitrust: Mainly Plaintiff—California” categories. The Firm was the only one nationwide to contribute multiple “Band 1” designees to these categories.
Joseph Saveri was ranked “Band 1” in both categories for the seventh consecutive year. Chambers commended Joe for “leading class action litigation against industry giants in the tech, pharmaceutical and manufacturing sectors” and his “market-leading expertise in price-fixing, monopolization and conspiracy claims.” His legal peers described him as “a tenacious attorney who turns difficult cases into good cases.”
Steven Williams has been ranked “Band 1” or “Band 2” in one or both categories since 2015. He was praised for his “deft representation of plaintiffs across an array of anticompetitive issues in federal and state court” and his “strong track record leading large plaintiff classes in industry-significant price-fixing litigation.”
ABOUT CHAMBERS AND PARTNERS
Chambers and Partners has published guides to the legal profession since 1990. With a team of over 200 experienced researchers, it identifies and ranks the world’s best lawyers and law firms based on in-depth, objective research.
Chambers and Partners ranks law firms and individual lawyers in bands from 1-6. Rankings are based upon technical legal ability, client service, commercial vision and business understanding, diligence, value for money (cost-effective staffing and organization), depth of team, professional conduct, and other factors important to clients.
Individual lawyers are ranked (in their practice-area(s)) regarding their legal knowledge and experience, ability, effectiveness, and client-service. Rankings are based upon independent research and investigation, including anonymous interviews, and reflect the judgment of legal peers. Researchers, deputy editors, and editors conduct internal meetings to analyze the research conducted and compile and finalize the ranking tables. Those under consideration are judged by:
- Interviews with those active in the market—mainly clients (who can be law firms instructing other law firms) and other lawyers with whom they work, and
- Assessment of recent work done.
