MINNEAPOLIS – Barnes & Thornburg announced today that experienced litigation and dispute resolution attorney Nicholas A F Sarokhanian has joined the firm’s Minneapolis office as a partner in its Litigation Department.

Sarokhanian represents businesses in complex, high-stakes disputes with competitors, consumers, and regulators, including matters involving multijurisdictional trade secret and non-compete litigation, international asset recovery and clawback litigation, breach of contract and fraud litigation, antitrust and unfair competition litigation, massive multidistrict litigation and class actions. His clients, ranging from Fortune 500 to startup companies, span a variety of industries, including real estate, healthcare and life sciences, financial services and insurance, and technology and energy.  

“Nicholas will be a valuable addition to the firm as businesses in Minnesota and across the US continue to navigate this challenging economic environment,” said Connie A Lahn, managing partner of the firm’s Minneapolis office. “His ability to see both the broader strategy and the key details in these complex cases is why clients continue to bring him their thorniest challenges.”

Sarokhanian has significant courtroom experience, including jury trial experience in state and federal courts, bench trials in state courts and federal district and bankruptcy courts, and arbitration hearings. At the appellate level, Sarokhanian represents clients in state and federal appellate courts. He has secured favorable published opinions from the US Courts of Appeals for the Fourth and Fifth Circuits that have helped his clients and other businesses with similar challenges.

“Nicholas’ deep trial experience and problem-solving acumen are tremendous assets to clients facing disputes that could have critical impacts on their businesses,” said D Randall Brown, chair of the firm’s Litigation Department. “Particularly when disputes enter the courtroom, clients want an experienced and trusted litigator like Nicholas representing them. We’re excited to have him join the team.”

In addition to his legal practice, Sarokhanian is dedicated to supporting his community and providing charitable service. He regularly represents pro bono clients and participates in diversity and inclusion initiatives.

Sarokhanian earned his JD, cum laude, from Baylor Law School and his BA, cum laude, from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University.
