Mr. Sergenian began his career with the boutique law firm of Gradstein, Luskin & Van Dalsem, which specialized in high-stakes business contingency cases. There, he gained hands-on experience early on, second-chairing a trial in his second year of practice, in which he helped secure a victory for the plaintiff, after a jury deliberation of 90 minutes. He then joined litigation juggernaut Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan LLP, and subsequently the litigation powerhouse Glaser Weil Fink Howard Avchen & Shapiro LLP, where he secured victories on behalf of plaintiffs and defendants through trials, arbitrations, and decisive summary judgment wins.
