San Francisco – December 13, 2018 As litigation boutique Alto Litigation PC celebrates its fifth anniversary, the firm’s lawyers and staff take part in Five Acts of Gratitude to give back to the San Francisco community.
Bahram Seyedin-Noor, a former partner at a leading international law firm, founded Alto Litigation in 2013. The firm’s attorneys (partners Seyedin-Noor, Bryan Ketroser and Daniel Sakaguchi, senior counsel Jared Kopel, and associates Ian Browning and Gabriel Peixoto) represent businesses, executives and investors in a broad range of matters, including securities litigation, trade secrets disputes, trademark and copyright disputes, and SEC investigations.
Throughout its first five years, Alto Litigation and its attorneys have been widely recognized for excellence. Among recent honors:
Benchmark Litigation named Alto Litigation among its top firms in California in October 2018, and individually recognized partners Seyedin-Noor, Ketroser and Sakaguchi.
The Daily Journal recognized Alto Litigation as one of California’s “Top Boutiques” in October 2018.
The National Law Journal named Seyedin-Noor an “Elite Boutique Trailblazer” for his work championing technology and alternative fees in litigation in November 2018.
SuperLawyers recognized Alto partners Seyedin-Noor and Sakaguchi as top lawyers in Northern California, and associate Peixoto as a Rising Star.
“We are proud of what we have accomplished in our first five years, and humbled by the faith Silicon Valley entrepreneurs and businesses place in us every time they hire us to handle sensitive matters,” observed Alto CEO Bahram Seyedin-Noor. “For our fifth anniversary, we wanted to celebrate, but we also want to give back.”
Alto Litigation’s Five Acts of Gratitude this year supported five organizations in the Bay Area:
Aim High, a free summer learning and enrichment program for middle school students in Northern California. Aim High’s mission is to nurture the promise and potential of low-income middle school students, to prepare students for high school and beyond, and to inspire the next generation of teachers and educational leaders. Alto Litigation sponsored Aim High’s Annual Gala on November 15, 2018.
The Diversity Scholar Program, a program for coaching and mentoring law students from under-represented communities to understand their career goals and secure employment while simultaneously preparing them with the skills required to flourish in their legal positions. The Program is run by PracticePro, a national organization bridging the gap between law school and law practice by teaching every-day legal, managerial, and administrative skills to current and aspiring attorneys. Alto Litigation is proud to offer its financial support to the Diversity Scholar Program.
