“We are so pleased to have Ingrid Evans and David Cheng – two very talented public interest attorneys – joining us at our new location,” said Peter Kraus, the firm’s co-founding partner. They bring solid know-how and a record of success in class action litigation. Ingrid also has asbestos litigation experience, while David has commercial experience. They will play a vital role in expanding this very important area of our practice.”
Evans and Cheng will be opening the branch office in Opera Plaza.
