Aanand Mehtani Attorney’s Bio

Aanand Mehtani started his legal career at O’Melveny & Myers – a highly selective litigation powerhouse that has incubated some of America’s most successful lawyers, judges, business leaders, and politicians. While at O’Melveny, Mr. Mehtani worked alongside senior statesmen such as Clinton Administration Secretary of State Warren Christopher, Regan Whitehouse Counsel A.B. Culvahouse Jr., and Biden Administration Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas, contributing billable work directly to Secretary Mayorkas’s elite practice.

After leaving O’Melveny, Mr. Mehtani went on to specialize in employment litigation at another large international powerhouse which is second to none – the Washington D.C. based Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld . Akin’s employment litigation practice is widely considered to be among the best in the United States, if not the absolute best. Working at Akin Gump, Mr. Mehtani drafted complex briefs in cases where hundreds of millions of dollars were in controversy. Such litigation experience at the best Wall Street firms is uncommon and it gives lawyers the ability to communicate at the highest level and provide effective advocacy against anyone.

Mr. Mehtani was litigated high-profile cases, profiled in The Wall Street Journal, the Los Angeles Times , the Hollywood Reporter, among many other publications and legal journals. Please visit our News and Press page for more information. He has successfully resolved hundreds of cases, routinely obtaining settlements and judgments for his clients in the six and seven figures.
