I grew up in the former USSR where he graduated from High School and received training as a Physician Assistant. He immigrated to the United States with his family in 1989. Vadim received a Bachelor of Arts degree, with a double major in Biology and Russian Studies, from the University of Rochester in 1993, where he graduated cum laude and was elected to Phi Beta Kappa, the nation’s oldest, “by invitation only” honor society founded in 1776. He received his Juris Doctorate from the University of California, Berkeley School of Law (Boalt Hall) in 1997 where he served as an associate editor of the High Technology Law Journal. Vadim began his legal career at a multinational law firm of Brobeck, Phleger & Harrison in the firm’s Palo Alto office where he represented established and start-up technology companies in a variety of transactional and litigation matters, including private and public financing, securities and IP litigation.
In 1998, I relocated to Los Angeles where he worked at a number of Hollywood agencies developing and guiding careers of up-and-coming actors, writers and directors. I returned to the practice of law in 2003 and has developed an expertise in representing individual and institutional health care providers in a variety of litigation, transactional and regulatory matters, including medical malpractice, labor and employment, general business and commercial litigation, class actions, state and federal managed care regulations (HIPAA, Knox-Keene Act, Medicare certification and reimbursement), fraud and elder abuse, payee/payor contractual disputes, and unfair competition. I also have an extensive knowledge of the regulatory framework regarding pharmaceuticals and vaccines and has represented a major vaccine manufacturer in products liability actions in both State and Federal Courts. My formal training as a Physician Assistant (in the former USSR), coupled with his undergraduate degree in Biology and continuing interest in the biomedical sciences, has made him a particularly effective advocate on behalf of clients in the health care and related industries.
I am admitted to practice before all state courts in California, as well as the United States District Court for the Central District of California. He is a member of the Los Angeles County Bar Association and the Association of Southern California Defense Counsel.
When not busy feeding my ever expanding hunger for anything related to technology, internet, medicine/biology, history, politics and music, I enjoy startling people with sarcastic remarks delivered in a nice, non-threatening Russian accent.
