Nadia A. Sarkis



Nadia Sarkis draws on a rich array of experience to help clients navigate appeals practically and strategically.   

Nadia joined GMSR after working at a multi-sector private equity firm, advising its portfolio companies regarding employment and privacy issues, in addition to overseeing all litigation. Her in-house work gave Nadia a client’s perspective on litigation, including the role of business dynamics in decision making.   

Before her work in-house, Nadia practiced at a major national law firm and a litigation boutique, trying multiple jury cases to verdict.  Nadia is well versed in all stages of litigation, and her trial experience makes her a far more effective appellate advocate.

Nadia started her legal career with two appellate clerkships, for Ferdinand F. Fernandez of the United States Court of Appeals and for Chief Justice Mary Mullarkey of the Colorado Supreme Court.  Nadia is also a Certified Information Privacy Professional (“CIPP”), a certification issued by the International Association of Privacy Professionals.
