Daily Journal Names Jonathan Tam Among its Top 40 Under 40 for 2022
Jonathan Tam, a partner in Dechert LLP’s product liability and mass torts practice, has been recognized by the Daily Journal in its Top 40 Under 40 list for 2022. Each year, the publication honors the achievements of exceptional lawyers in California under the age of 40.
Mr. Tam, who was recently named a Rising Star in product liability by Law360, has represented major pharmaceutical companies, medical device companies and consumer electronic companies, and other innovative products manufacturers in some of the most complex and high-stakes mass tort product liability litigations, multi-district litigations (MDLs), consumer fraud actions and class actions in the United States, including cases filed by State Attorneys General.
Mr. Tam has led, managed, and handled various aspects of complex, nationwide litigations in state and federal courts, including serving as trial and appellate counsel. In particular, he has extensive experience litigating the admissibility of expert testimony. His work has led to the dismissal of plaintiffs’ general causation testimony, which resulted in summary judgment in favor of his clients in a number of high-stakes mass tort litigations.
