Sanjay M. Nangia

Sanjay Nangia knows what it’s like to be in a client’s shoes, and uses that experience to make his clients’ day-to-day easier. He understands the frustrations of receiving lengthy and unclear emails without direct answers to questions, the anxiety that can build when you don’t hear back from outside counsel in a timely manner, and the difficulties of working with counsel that doesn’t understand your business or goals. Sanjay dedicates himself to resolving these pain points and providing practical, useful advice.

Sanjay focuses on business litigation and government investigations. Sanjay has represented technology companies, FinTechs, financial institutions, medical organizations, food companies, and many other businesses in a multitude of disputes in both state and federal courts. Sanjay has an affinity for helping clients that are targets of class action lawsuits or government inquiry.  In addition to being a pillar in DWT’s San Francisco litigation group, Sanjay works in close coordination with the firm’s financial services practice group and emerging payments team. For three years, Sanjay worked part time as a secondee at a San Francisco FinTech "unicorn," handling a diverse set of legal issues across the globe.
