Evan M. Tager
Identified by Chambers USA as one of America’s leading appellate lawyers for the past nine years, Evan Tager has been integrally involved in a range of issues of paramount importance to the business community, including punitive damages, class-certification standards, admissibility of expert testimony, and enforceability of arbitration agreements. Evan has filed hundreds of briefs on these and other issues of importance to the business community in the United States Supreme Court and in lower courts throughout the country.
In December 2014, Evan was named to The National Law Journal’s inaugural list of “Litigation Trailblazers & Pioneers,” which recognizes the achievements of 50 people who have “helped make a difference in the fight for justice” and “shown a deep passion and perseverance in pursuit of their mission, having achieved remarkable successes along the way.” The National Law Journal highlighted Evan’s transformative work in two areas of law that are of great concern to the business community: punitive damages and the enforceability of arbitration provisions. In February 2013, International Law Office awarded Evan its Client Choice Award for the Litigation category in Washington, D.C. And in 2012, The National Law Journal named Evan to its “Champions and Visionaries” list, recognizing his efforts leading up to the Supreme Court’s seminal decision in AT&T Mobility v. Concepcion.
