Christopher A. Seeger is broadly admired as one of the nation’s most versatile, innovative and accomplished members of the plaintiff’s trial bar. Since founding Seeger Weiss LLP in 1999, Mr. Seeger has earned leadership appointments from state and federal courts throughout the United States in many of the country’s most complex and noteworthy multidistrict litigations. Most recently, Mr. Seeger was appointed co-lead counsel and served as the chief negotiator in the NFL concussion injury multi-district litigation, where he successfully represented thousands of retired NFL players who suffered brain-related injuries as a result of hits sustained during their playing careers. Nationally recognized for his groundbreaking work in pharmaceutical mass actions involving Vioxx, Zyprexa, Rezulin, PPA and Gadolinium, among others, which resulted in the recovery of over $8 billion for injured victims nationwide, Mr. Seeger has achieved similar milestone successes in class and mass actions encompassing a vast array of corporate misconduct.
Mr. Seeger earned his law degree magna cum laude in 1990 from the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, where he served as the Managing Editor of the Cardozo Law Review, and which honored him with its Alumnus of the Year Award in 2009, the highest honor bestowed on an alumnus of the Law School. Mr. Seeger’s undergraduate career was similarly distinguished, graduating summa cum laude in 1987 from Hunter College of the City University of New York, which inducted Mr. Seeger into its Alumni Hall of Fame in 2007. In recognition of his preeminence in the trial bar, Hunter College honored Mr. Seeger with its Distinguished Alumni Lawyer Award in 2013.
