The Joseph Saveri Law Firm, LLP, is proud to announce that Christopher Young has been elevated to partner.

“Chris is on the fast track to a remarkable career,” said firm founder and CEO, Joseph Saveri. “He works relentlessly, has positive relationships with co-counsel and the courts, and is experienced beyond his years. Chris’s well-deserved promotion reflects the firm’s commitment to training and advancing the next generation of antitrust lawyers. It also showcases our firm’s rapid growth and prestige as evidenced by the addition of two lateral partners—Ronnie Seidel Spiegel and Cadio Zirpoli—over the past two years.”

Chris is a second-generation American, the first person in his immediate family to earn an advanced degree, and the only lawyer among his extended family. Since joining the firm in 2019, Chris has been instrumental to the firm’s success, working diligently and tirelessly on many of its most significant cases. He has had the opportunity to gain extensive discovery and trial experience as well as the ability to work directly with clients: opportunities often unavailable to lawyers with more years of practice at other firms.

Particularly, in Capacitors Price-Fixing Antitrust Litigation, Chris was instrumental as part of the team coordinating this massive price-fixing case, which first went to trial in 2020 for two weeks (before the pandemic began). The case was retried in November-December 2021, when the firm reached settlements totaling $165 million, bringing total case settlements to $604.55 million—an antitrust law rarity. In addition, Chris has been an effective leader in obtaining the final approval of a 2020 fourth round of settlements and obtaining the final approval of 2021 settlements from the Court.

“From day one, Chris has proven himself to be a valuable member of the firm.” said firm partner Steven Williams. “He has grown into a leading attorney in the antitrust and global competition space, demonstrating a consistent commitment to antitrust advocacy.”

Chris is actively involved on the team litigating high profile cases such as AI Image Generator Copyright Litigation, and is part of the Court-appointed leadership in cases such as Short Squeeze Antitrust Litigation and Jackson Hewitt “No-Poach” Litigation. He also shares the firm’s commitment to training the next generation of antitrust lawyers by regularly mentoring its younger attorneys and law clerks. 

Chris’s expertise and accomplishments have earned praise and accolades from his colleagues, the courts, the National Law Journal, the Recorder, the American Antitrust Institute, and Super Lawyers. Chris is also active in several bar associations. He is currently Vice Chair for the American Bar Association Antitrust Section’s Trial Practice Division and, also to the ABA, has been a Young Lawyer Representative for the Competition Torts Committee (2021-2022) and Young Lawyer Representative for the Leadership and Diversity Special Operations Team (2020-2021). He is an important contributor to the Education Committee of the Asian American Bar Association of the Greater Bay Area. Chris has also propelled the firm’s successful pro bono relationship with the Federal Pro Bono project.

The firm is more than pleased to welcome Chris to the partnership team, and it continues to see great things in his future and the future of the firm.
