Seeger Weiss is proud to announce that partner Parvin Aminolroaya has been chosen as a Law360 2022 Product Liability Rising Star. Parvin has spent over a decade at Seeger Weiss working on some of the most significant class action and mass tort cases in the country, leading to this achievement. She currently serves as Plaintiffs’ Co-Lead Counsel in the In re Elmiron (Pentosan Polysulfate Sodium) Products Liability Litigation and has played a key role in the 3M earplug litigation, the National Opiates Litigation, and the Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) Products Liability Litigation.
In 2021, Parvin was appointed to be Co-Lead Counsel in Elmiron, the first woman of color to serve as lead counsel in a multidistrict litigation (MDL). Judge Brian R. Martinotti, who is presiding over the MDL, praised Parvin and the other co-lead counsel as “highly skilled counsel with diverse backgrounds and experience.” Parvin has also played a key role in multiple bellwether trials in the 3M Combat Arms Earplug Products Liability Litigation, including preparing expert and fact witnesses in a trial that resulted in a $110M verdict against 3M.
Aminolroaya joined Seeger Weiss in 2008 after graduating from the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law and Fordham University. She credits her long career at Seeger Weiss to a formative conversation in her third year of law school with cofounding partners Christopher A. Seeger and Stephen A. Weiss. “I had just argued an important issue relating to federal preemption, which had come before the Supreme Court in 2008, in the New York City Bar Association Moot Court Competition.” Unlike her classmates who were aiming for Big Law jobs, Aminolroaya was interested in representing plaintiffs. “Most of the interview was talking about the impact of this Supreme Court decision, Wyeth v. Levine, on complex litigation.” Though the firm wasn’t regularly hiring new graduates, Aminolroaya says, “they made an exception for me.” Seeger, Weiss, and partner David R. Buchanan “always looked for opportunities for me, always supported me with the resources I needed to success.”
