Yetter Coleman LLP is pleased to announce the elevation to partner of Susanna Allen and Tyler Young, effective January 1, 2024. Both have demonstrated exceptional litigation skills, leadership, community involvement, and dedication to the firm’s clients.
Susanna Allen represents clients in a range of industries in complex commercial litigation in state and federal courts. She is a 2017 honors graduate of Vanderbilt Law School, where she served as Editor-in-Chief of the Vanderbilt Law Review. Susanna joined Yetter Coleman after a clerkship with the Hon. Julia Smith Gibbons of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit and private practice with Williams & Connolly in Washington, D.C. Upon moving to Texas, she earned the highest score for the July 2021 Texas bar exam. She has contributed her legal skills and leadership to representing the firm’s largest clients and serving as a member of the firm’s recruiting committee.
Tyler Young pursues a practice focused on complex commercial litigation, with a specialty in antitrust and competition issues, where he has delivered exceptional results for clients across multiple industries. He is a 2012 honors graduate of the University of Virginia School of Law. He joined the firm after clerkships with the Hon. Edith Hollan Jones of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit and Hon. David Campbell of the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona and private practice in the San Francisco office of Latham &Watkins. His work and reputation have been instrumental in adding new clients to the firm, particularly in the emerging industries and technology sectors.
Susanna and Tyler are recognized as “One to Watch” by Best Lawyers in America, a testament to their hard work, impressive legal skills, and dedication to their clients and the legal profession.
“I’m grateful for this honor, but even more grateful that my legal career led me to this firm,” says Tyler. “The unique opportunity to work on premier matters in such a collegial and supportive atmosphere has allowed me to grow professionally while also building personal relationships that I value. I’m also excited to share this moment with Susanna, who is a superb lawyer and an even better person.” Susanna adds, “I’m so pleased and honored to join the Yetter Coleman partnership. It’s a joy to practice alongside exceptional attorneys and represent our clients in their most challenging matters. It’s particularly special to be elevated alongside Tyler. There’s just no one better to share in the trial trenches, and I look forward to many more trials together to come.”
“Susanna and Tyler are extremely talented lawyers and rising stars in our profession. Their commitment to exceptional client service, unflappable dedication to teamwork, poise under pressure, and innate leadership qualities make them a natural fit for our firm. We are so pleased now to call them partners,” says Tim McConn, partner and member of the firm’s management committee.
