James Dallal started at the Joseph Saveri Law Firm in 2012 and has practiced in all phases of antitrust litigation from pre-filing investigation through pleadings, discovery, class certification, dispositive motions, and appellate briefing.  The matters he has litigated at the firm include:

  • Capacitors Price-Fixing:  The firm is Sole Lead Counsel in a class action lawsuit alleging that global capacitor manufacturers conspired to fix prices, forcing direct purchasers to pay more.  In January 2017, the Court approved an initial partial settlement of direct purchaser plaintiffs’ claims against five of 22 corporate defendant families for $32.6 million.  The case is ongoing against the remaining defendants.
  • High-Tech Employee Antitrust Litigation:  The firm served as Co-Lead Counsel and obtained in September 2015 a court order approving a $415 million USD (NT $12.454 billion) settlement against Google and other defendants—the largest settlement ever obtained in an antitrust case brought on behalf of a class of employees.

In 2017, James was named a Northern California “Rising Star” by Thomson Reuters’ Super Lawyers publication.

Prior to joining the firm James worked for a boutique plaintiffs’ firm in Los Angeles that assisted borrowers in their suits against the financial industry.  Prior to attending law school he worked as a paralegal for a major international firm in its patent litigation group.  He has certified proficiency in French and Portuguese.
