Partner Sathya Gosselin advises a diverse array of clients, from athletes to Fortune 500 companies, helping each navigate complex litigation and achieve dispute resolution. Sathya takes a "hands-on" approach to litigation, working with a small team to secure favorable results at the trial and appellate levels. Most recently, he served as trial counsel in the landmark O'Bannon v. NCAA litigation, in which he examined and cross-examined witnesses at trial, deposed key NCAA executives, briefed complex constitutional issues advanced by the NCAA and television networks, and helped negotiate a $40 million settlement with Electronic Arts, Inc. to be distributed among current and former college athletes. As a principal member of the O'Bannon case team, Sathya is frequently asked to speak on a host of sports-related issues.

Sathya's practice spans financial services, competition, and sports and entertainment matters, always with a focus on delivering outstanding client service. His work in these arenas has earned him the recognition of his peers. Law360 recently named Sathya one of five "Rising Stars" under the age of 40 leading the class-action field, noting his "adept skill set," "penchant for high-stakes litigation," and "cloase attention to detail."
