Ashish S. Joshi is the Managing Partner and a trial lawyer at Lorandos Joshi P.C. Mr. Joshi has been admitted to the Bar of the Supreme Court of the United States, State Bars of New York, Michigan, District of Columbia, and Gujarat, India.

Mr. Joshi relishes the courtroom battles and his practice focuses on complex litigation cases – the make or break cases where companies, careers, reputations, families, liberty, and life are at stake. Mr. Joshi’s cases have covered a wide spectrum, from international cases involving theft of trade secrets to highly contentious celebrity divorce cases involving millions of dollars of marital estate, from cases involving severe parental alienation and holding children hostage to cases of false allegations of sexual abuse, from a case involving the Hague Convention on International Child Abduction to a World Bank project mired in litigation in a foreign jurisdiction amidst allegations of local corruption, from cases alleging Medicare and healthcare fraud, insider trading, RICO and money laundering to alien smuggling and child pornography. Mr. Joshi and his team have represented clients around the country and internationally.

Apart from domestic state and federal litigation, Mr. Joshi’s unique background – fluent in multiple languages and holding graduate and professional degrees in accounting and securities along with substantial litigation experience in India - has also provided him an edge in cross-border investigations and international dispute resolution.

A prolific author, Mr. Joshi has published a number of articles and co-authored books on several legal topics including criminal defense, commercial litigation, international litigation, and trial practice. He has made several presentations for continuing legal education programs hosted by the American Bar Association, the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, and various state and local bar associations.

Mr. Joshi is privileged to serve as an Associate Editor for the Litigation journal of the American Bar Association’s Section of Litigation and on the Advisory Board for the Champion journal published by the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. Mr. Joshi also serves on the Board of Directors of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers based in Washington, D.C.
