The article announcing the winners highlighted Mr. Parasharami’s work defending businesses against class action lawsuits, including Mayer Brown’s Supreme Court win for client AT&T Mobility in AT&T Mobility v.

Mr. Parasharami is a member of the firm’s Committee on Diversity and Inclusion. He joined Mayer Brown in 2003 after clerking for Judge Leonard I. Garth of the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.  A summa cum laude graduate of Princeton University, he received a JD degree cum laude from Harvard Law School.
