Anna Yeung focuses her practice on products liability with an emphasis on the defense of complex pharmaceutical products and medical devices in single-plaintiff actions, coordinated proceedings and multi-district litigations. She routinely handles matters from the pre-litigation stage through final disposition or resolution, securing favorable dispositive rulings, including numerous summary judgment wins, at trial and reaffirmed on appeal. Anna also represents companies and individuals in a broad range of complex commercial litigation matters, including industries in telecommunications, insurance, computer software, and semiconductors.

In addition to her litigation practice, Anna also volunteers at the Asian Pacific Islander (API) Legal Outreach and Asian American Bar Association (AABA) monthly pro bono legal clinic in San Francisco, CA, where she provides legal assistance to low-income Bay Area residents in a number of areas, including immigration, family law, and housing.
