Travis Manfredi joined the firm in 2022 after several years in the plaintiffs’ bar working directly with current firm partner, Cadio Zirpoli, when they were both at Saveri & Saveri, Inc. While there, he and Cadio collaborated with Joseph Saveri Law Firm partners Joseph Saveri, Steven Williams, and Ronnie Spiegel on a variety of major antitrust class actions. He worked so closely with Ronnie at times that she seemed more like a co-worker than co-counsel. Based on these positive, rewarding relationships over the years, Travis jumped at the opportunity to work with the accomplished team Joe has assembled.
Travis has wide legal expertise. He specializes in litigation (federal, state, administrative, and international), particularly in the practice areas of class actions, antitrust, and intellectual property. He also advises clients on trademark prosecution, privacy, intellectual property licensing, contests/sweepstakes, and advertising matters. Travis works diligently to obtain the best results for his clients, always seeking to find a solution that best balances their risks and needs.
While an associate at Saveri & Saveri, Inc., Travis was a valuable team member on a number of high-profile class actions, including In re Cathode Ray Tube Antitrust Litigation, In re Optical Disk Drive Antitrust Litigation, In re Auto Parts Antitrust Litigation, In re Lithium Ion Batteries Antitrust Litigation, In re Capacitors Antitrust Litigation, In re Generic Pharmaceuticals Pricing Antitrust Litigation, In re Apple iPhone Antitrust Litigation, and In re Pork Antitrust Litigation. He obtained favorable results for his clients in both trials and motion hearings, and developed key testimony in depositions of high-ranking company officials. He managed all aspects of class award distribution from selection of notice and claims administrators to disbursement of award and attorneys’ fees.
Travis also garnered valuable intellectual property, privacy, and other related experience as special counsel at Cobalt LLP, where he litigated trademark and copyright cases, prosecuted trademarks, and advised on privacy advertising and the intricacies of contests and sweepstakes rules. He played a key role in all aspects of domestic and international trademark prosecution, as well as domestic and international trademark enforcement and disputes, including Trademark Trial and Appeal Board administrative proceedings.
During law school at the University of San Francisco, Travis was managing editor of the USF Law Review, participated in national moot court competitions, and was intimately involved in student government.
Travis has been recognized by Super Lawyers as a “Rising Star” from 2018 to the present. He is a member of the American Bar Association and is a certified privacy expert for U.S. law (including CIPP/US and CIPM certification).
Travis has become part of the We The Action network, which matches attorneys with progressive organizations to facilitate pro bono services. He was also a board member of the AIDS Legal Referral Panel, which provides direct legal services to HIV positive people as well as connecting those same people with lawyers in its network willing to provide pro bono legal assistance.
