Ashwin comes to Lippman Jungers with four years of BigLaw experience supporting partners in cutting-edge IP practices at Wilson Sonsini Goodrich and Rosati, and Womble Bond Dickinson LLP. He is intimately familiar with the tech-savvy, deal-driven culture of Silicon Valley AmLaw firms but his true passion is for working with the people who make the deals happen.

Ashwin is deeply interested in a partner’s needs when evaluating potential law firms for fit, both from business and firm culture standpoints. He works with the recruiters, law firms and candidates to streamline the often complicated lateraling process. His steady presence, friendly, approachable personality, and resourceful nature guides our candidates each step of the way.

Born and raised in Bangalore, India, Ashwin studied Creative Writing and Philosophy at the University of Southern California. When he’s not writing work emails, he can be found reading and scribbling poetry on his couch. He loves watching offbeat films in LA’s old Art Deco theaters, competing in tennis tournaments, and volunteering at a shelter for rescue cats.
