Mandlekar, a former partner of a national law firm headquartered in San Diego, is an attorney with over nineteen years of experience handling complex litigation matters.  He graduated from the University of California at Los Angeles in 1995, attaining a Bachelor of Arts degree with highest honors, and received his law degree from the University of California, Hastings College of the Law, in 1998.

Upon graduation from law school, Mr. Mandlekar represented the plaintiffs in multiple employment law class action cases filed in Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Diego.  In 2001, he joined a world-class shareholder litigation firm, where he litigated high-profile financial fraud cases in California, Colorado, New York, New Jersey and Texas courts. Most of Mr. Mandlekar’s cases involved complex subject matter, such as accounting fraud, structured finance and the use of financial derivatives, and many involved claims for billions of dollars.

For example, Mr. Mandlekar litigated on behalf of the shareholders in In re Enron Corporation Securities Litigation, one of the largest and most complicated corporate frauds in American history, and on behalf of Hong Kong bond purchasers in In re Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc., the largest bankruptcy in American history.  He also represented the plaintiff shareholders in the jury trial of In re AT&T Corp. Securities Litigation, which resulted in a settlement of $100 million after the plaintiffs presented their case-in-chief.

Most recently, Mr. Mandlekar took the lead role in representing plaintiff Reggie Brown in his case against Snap Inc. over ownership of the leading mobile phone application known as “Snapchat.”
