AABANY congratulates Yasuhiro Saito, Partner and Founder at Saito Sorenson Lurie LLP, who was honored on March 3 at the Lunar New Year Dinner hosted by the St. John’s University School of Law’s APALSA, held at Providence in Midtown Manhattan, near Columbus Circle.

AABANY Trial Reenactment Team members know Yasu well as one of the early regular cast members. The demands of his boutique litigation firm has taken Yasu away from more recent productions, but his good work in complex commercial litigation and white collar defense has earned him well-deserved recognition from his alma mater.

After founding his firm, Yasu gave back to St. John’s by helping to launch the International Honors Program in fall 2014. Recently, former AABANY Legal Intern Christopher Arcitio, himself a current student at St. John’s, wrote a profile about Yasu for the school’s Commercial Division Online Law Report.

Congratulations to the St. John’s University School of Law’s APALSA for another successful Lunar New Year Dinner!
