WASHINGTON — The National Asian Pacific American Bar Association (NAPABA) has named Nassiri & Jung LLP as its 2017 Asian Pacific American-Owned Law Firm of the Year. NAPABA created the Asian Pacific American-Owned Law Firm of the Year Award to recognize Asian Pacific American-owned law firms that have achieved prominence and distinction while maintaining the highest ethical and legal standards in the profession, and have demonstrated a strong commitment to the Asian Pacific American community. The Award also celebrates growing Asian Pacific American ownership and entrepreneurship in the legal marketplace.

The presentation of the 2017 Asian Pacific American-Owned Law Firm of the Year Award will take place at the NAPABA Anniversary Gala during the 2017 NAPABA Convention in Washington, D.C., on Nov. 4, 2017.

Nassiri & Jung was founded in June 2006 by two friends — Charles Jung and Kass Nassiri — focusing on sophisticated litigation for both defendants and plaintiffs. On the defense side, they have represented global companies such as eBay, Hitron Technologies, and Flextronics. On the plaintiff’s side, Nassiri & Jung has represented attorneys, executives, and classes of workers and consumers, earning tens of millions of dollars at trial and through settlements.

The firm devotes a portion of its profits each year to fund direct legal services and to support the public interest attorneys who deliver them. Since 2013, the firm and its attorneys have sponsored public interest attorney scholarships to NAPABA. The firm’s foundation has partnered with Asian American Bar Association – Bay Area’s Law Foundation to award $80,000 in grants to direct legal services providers. This year, the Jung Foundation donated $30,000 to the NAPABA Law Foundation to fund annual public interest scholarships.

With the spike of hate crimes and incidents in the days after the 2016 presidential election, Nassiri & Jung’s attorneys launched a website, http://www.standagainsthatred.org, to collect and report hate crimes and incidents against Asian Pacific Americans. This hate crime tracker was donated to Asian Americans Advancing Justice, which now uses it to track hate crimes nationally.

For more information, the media may contact Brett Schuster, NAPABA communications manager, at 202-775-9555 or bschuster@napaba.org.
