表彰

  • 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 recognized Evan for his transformative work in two areas of law that are of great concern to the business community: punitive damages and the enforceability of arbitration provisions.
  • Awarded the International Law Office's Client Choice Award for the Litigation category in Washington DC. This award, which is based entirely on client nominations and references, is given to one lawyer per city. According to ILO's press release, "[c]lients are asked to rate individual lawyers and law firms on the following client service criteria: quality of legal advice, value for money, commercial awareness, effective communication, billing transparency, tailored fee structures, response time, sharing of expertise and use of technology." One client interviewed by ILO commented that "Evan Tager's trial and appellate work for my company has facilitated a fundamental positive change in some of the most important legal doctrines impacting businesses." Another observed that "Evan's reputation is that of a master strategist and communicator, with top-flight analytical skills and a unique ability to simplify the complex." And a third said that "Evan brings a value set and open-mindedness that allow him to become a trusted business partner, and he is eager to align his interests with the client's."
  • Named by The National Law Journal to its "Champions and Visionaries" list for his work helping Cingular Wireless (now AT&T Mobility) create an incentives-based customer arbitration process aimed at reducing the number of class actions the company had to fight and his successful defense of that process at the US Supreme Court. In AT&T Mobility v. Concepcion, the Court ruled that the Federal Arbitration Act preempts states from refusing to enforce arbitration provisions on the ground that they disallow class actions. Recognizing the nearly 10-year duration of Evan’s efforts in this area, The National Law Journal said that "Evan Tager has established himself as one of the great marathon runners in the federal appellate system."
  • The Legal Times named Evan as one of 12 leading appellate lawyers, noting that "[w]hen a major company needs to find a lawyer in a key case involving class certification, punitive damages, or arbitration, there's a good chance it will hire Evan Tager." "In the past several years," the publication stated, Evan "has become the go-to attorney in a growing number of cases that matter to big businesses across the United States."
