Evan Tager

Mayer Brown

Evan M. Tager is a member of the firm’s Supreme Court & Appellate and Class Action practices, recognized by Benchmark Litigation as a National Litigation Star and identified by Chambers USA and Legal 500as one of America’s leading appellate lawyers for multiple years running.

Evan 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. He also has handled dozens of cases involving claims against railroads arising out of workplace injuries, grade crossing accidents, derailments, and injuries to trespassers.

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 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.

In April 2014, Evan was elected to the American Law Institute, and has joined the Members Consultative Groups for the Restatement Third, Torts: Liability for Economic Harm and the Restatement Third, The Law of Consumer Contracts.

In 2012, The National Law Journal named Evan to its “Champions and Visionaries” list, citing 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 ten-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.”

In its issue on leading appellate lawyers, Legal Times said 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.”

Evan received his AB, magna cum laude from Princeton University in 1982 and his JD in 1985 from Stanford Law School, where he was Articles Editor of the Stanford Law Review and winner of the Board of Editors Award for Outstanding Editorial Contribution to the Stanford Law Review. Following law school, he served as a law clerk to Judge Mary M. Schroeder in the Ninth Circuit.
