Ridgefield Park, N.J. — Seeger Weiss LLP announced today the promotion of Christopher Ayers to partner. Following a decade as a member of the litigation defense bar, Ayers joined Seeger Weiss as Counsel in September 2017. He contributes to the firm’s diversified class action and mass tort practice, including in the areas of product liability, complex commercial litigation, qui tam (whistleblower) cases, and pharmaceutical injury.
“Chris is a consummate ‘lawyer’s lawyer’ who, in his two years here, has quickly become a vital member of our team,” said partner Stephen A. Weiss. “His indefatigable commitment to our firm’s clients and ultimate professionalism shines through every day. We’re very pleased to have him join the Seeger Weiss partnership.”
Ayers received his B.A. from Brown University in 2002, and his J.D. from the University of San Diego School of Law in 2007. A preeminent high school wrestler in New Jersey, he earned his varsity letter in the sport during all four of his years at Brown and remains actively involved in the Brown program.
“Chris is a skillful competitor by nature,” observed Seeger Weiss partner Chris Seeger. “The discipline and strategic vision that he developed over years on the wrestling mat is absolutely manifest in his legal practice.”
While in law school, Ayers received the CALI Award for Advanced Trial Advocacy and the Virginia C. Nelson Graduate Prize in Advanced Advocacy.
“I’m honored to ascend to the partnership ranks at Seeger Weiss,” Ayers said. “My work here entails what I’ve always wanted to do; fight for the regular citizen. When corporate responsibility and government regulators fail, we step in and hold power to account—helping people get compensated for their injuries and losses. It’s truly satisfying work.”
