Joseph Saveri and Steven Williams of the Joseph Saveri Law Firm were ranked “Band 1” (highest ranking) attorneys by Chambers and Partners in its “Antitrust: Plaintiff—USA—Nationwide” and “Antitrust: Mainly Plaintiff—California” categories. Their recognition made the firm the only one nationwide to contribute multiple “Band 1” designees to these categories.
Joseph Saveri was ranked a “Band 1” attorney in these categories for the sixth consecutive year. Per feedback from legal peers, Chambers held Mr. Saveri in high regard for his “robust plaintiff-side litigation practice” of acting on behalf of a wide range of consumer classes. Sources described him as “a very smart lawyer,” and a “very good strategist” who has “a good brain for legal tactics and maneuvering complex cases.”
Steven Williams has been named a “Band 1” or “Band 2” attorney in one or both categories since 2015. He garnered praise for his litigation and class actions on behalf of plaintiffs in relation to antitrust law violations and consumer protection issues. Sources noted his extensive litigation experience and regarded him as “a talented lawyer.”
Chambers and Partners ranks law firms and individual lawyers in bands from 1-6, with 1 being the best. The qualities on which rankings are assessed include 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)) on the basis of 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.
Chambers and Partners has published guides to the legal profession since 1990. With a team of over 200 experienced researchers at its London head office, it identifies and ranks the world’s best lawyers and law firms based on in-depth, objective research.
