Aashish Y. Desai

Managing Partner
Desai Law Firm

AASHISH Y. DESAI is an experienced and polished advocate.  He has a reputation as both an ethical and determined attorney and a long history of success.  Clients and attorneys seek him out not only for his professionalism, intelligence and strong desire to win, but perhaps more importantly, because of his proactive, solution-oriented style of litigation.  He takes his role as an advocate very seriously — whether it’s a multi-million-dollar class action or a pro bono matter.  He recently filed an amicus brief and appeared before the U.S. Supreme Court on the issue of whether the outside salesperson exemption under the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 applies to pharmaceutical representatives. He has written countless legal articles and co-authored the leading CEB practice manual for California Wage and Hour Law, published by The Regents of the University of California.  He is also a Chapter Editor for The Fair Labor Standards Act, a preeminent labor treatise published by BNA.
