Magarian, an attorney at Dorsey & Whitney since 1990, and partner since 1997 in Dorsey’s trial group, has been acknowledged by clients and his peers as a top litigator, representing clients across a wide range of industries in complex commercial litigation, white collar criminal defense, government investigations, civil fraud, employment litigation, and general business litigation . He was recently recognized by The Business Journal as one of the “Top 40 Professionals Under the Age of 40.”
A 1989 graduate of the Georgetown University Law Center, Magarian was recently honored with the 2002 Distinguished Service Award by the Minnesota Justice Foundation in recognition for his commitment to the community through public interest work in several pro bono areas that impact economically disadvantaged people. He also currently serves as chairman of the Board of Directors for the Innocence Project of Minnesota, one of the goal of which is to identify persons wrongfully convicted or crimes and exonerate them.
