LTL Attorneys Adds Two Lateral Associates to Firm’s Los Angeles Office

LTL Attorneys LLP is proud to welcome Prashanth Chennakesavan and Andrea Contreras as associates in the firm’s Los Angeles office. Prashanth will focus his practice on complex commercial litigation and Andrea will focus on employment and class action matters.

Prashanth joins the firm from Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan LLP’s New York office where he represented companies in antitrust, trade secret, intellectual property and complex business litigation matters before state and federal courts and arbitration panels. He is a graduate of Columbia Law School where he was a Harlan Fiske Stone scholar and served on the Editorial Board of the Columbia Human Rights Law Review.

Andrea, also a Columbia Law School graduate, served as a litigation associate at Morrison & Foerster’s Los Angeles office. She is a member of the Women Lawyers Association of Los Angeles and the Association of Business Trial Lawyers of Los Angeles, and she is a three-time recipient of the “Wiley W. Manuel Award for Pro Bono Legal Services” from the State Bar of California.

With the addition of Prashanth, Andrea, and this year’s incoming first-year class, LTL now has over 40 attorneys across its three offices in California, dedicated to trials and arbitrations.

“We are excited to welcome Prashanth and Andrea to our growing Los Angeles office and to the firm,” said LTL co-managing partner Thomas Suh. “Their work experience, training, and educational background, add greatly to our existing roster of talented advocates whose innovative approach to the practice of law continue to advance our results-driven, client-first mission.”
