Joseph Saveri and Steven Williams of the Joseph Saveri Law Firm were ranked “Band 1” attorneys by Chambers USA in its “Antitrust: Mostly Plaintiff” category. Specifically, their dual “Band 1” rankings for “California, Antitrust: Mostly Plaintiff” made the firm the only one nationwide to contribute multiple “Band 1” designees to that category.
Joseph Saveri was ranked a “Band 1” attorney in “California, Antitrust: Mostly Plaintiff” and “Nationwide, Antitrust: Mostly Plaintiff,” the fifth consecutive year being so designated. Per feedback from legal peers, Chambers praised Mr. Saveri as “a very strong lawyer,” with “a wealth of experience taking many class actions to court for clients from a wide variety of industries such as financial services, technology, and agriculture.” “He is outstanding; he has great tenacity and skill, and he brings energy to cases unlike any other,” Chambers summarized.
Steven Williams has been named a “Band 1” or “Band 2” attorney in one or both categories since 2015. He garnered praise for his plaintiff-side antitrust cases, spanning many industries and including corporate clients and class action suits. Chambers commended him for “running everything” in a case and for demonstrating “the ability to handle all parts of a case, right through from beginning to end.”
Law firms and individual lawyers are ranked in bands from 1-6, with 1 being the best. The qualities on which rankings are assessed include technical legal ability, professional conduct, client service, commercial astuteness, diligence, commitment, and other qualities most valued by the client. Individual lawyers are ranked (in their practice-area(s)) on the basis of their legal knowledge and experience, their ability, their effectiveness, and their client-service. Rankings are based upon independent research and investigation, including anonymous interviews, and reflect the judgment of legal peers. 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.
