The report identifies extraordinary and accomplished lawyers who advise clients active in sports, gaming, leisure, and gambling, in addition to providing commercial and regulatory advice. Fewer than 100 U.S. lawyers received this recognition in 2023.
Sathya is an acclaimed high-stakes litigator with nearly two decades of experience in antitrust, commercial, and sports and entertainment litigation. He advises a diverse roster of clients across numerous industries, helping each navigate complex litigation and achieve dispute resolution. Sathya prides himself on his hands-on approach to litigation, working with select teams to secure favorable results at the trial and appellate levels and deliver outstanding client service.
