Evan’s clients include a who’s who of the Fortune 500 from IBM, Time Warner, and Novartis to Alcoa, Xerox, and American Express among others. He is a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, Chairman of the Trustees of the New York Library, and Adjunct Professor at NYU School of Law. Behind the Trial.
