Mohammad N. Khan

Managing Attorney

Mohammad Khan’s work ethic was embedded when he was 10 years old.

Growing up in a family of entrepreneurs, he learned the complexities and risks of business ownership at an early age. From stocking inventory at his parents’ convenience store on the weekends to managing their restaurant full-time in high school, Mohammad saw how decisions affect the whole of operations — and by extension, his family’s livelihood.

This empathy laid the bedrock for Mohammad’s professional career. In his roles, he has relied on this perspective of a business owner’s stake. He believes that good strategy comes from seeing the whole picture — and a business’s growth depends on the integrity of its parts.

Experience

In 2014, Mohammad joined an international law and CPA firm, becoming its first attorney to earn a Partner role in less than four years. In this time, he built a record of success in representing client interests, including:

  • Defense expertise, successfully defending a complex matter before the California Court of Appeal
  • Jurisdictional versatility, litigating cases in California, Nevada, Texas, New York, and New Jersey
  • Case scope and scale, obtaining the highest numerical judgment in his firm’s 35-year history

Furthering his passion for serving client needs, Mohammad developed his transactional law specialty. In his work, he sought to build more resiliency into a business’s operation. Mohammad has seen how with the right strategic decision-making, a business can reduce risk and realize greater profits.

His penchant for seeing the whole picture did not go unnoticed. Mohammad also served as the firm’s chief operating officer beginning in 2017. During this tenure, he:

  • Oversaw nearly 500 employees across six U.S. and 14 international offices
  • Served as Chair for the Transactional and Litigation Department
  • Used his fluency in English, Urdu, Punjabi, and Hindi to serve as the liaison between the company’s U.S. and Indian operations
  • Directed the firm’s growth strategy across 60 teams

His work delivered significant multi-departmental outcomes, including:

  • Human resources — implementing new employee onboarding and improving retention procedures, reducing turnover
  • Marketing — defining the firm’s vision, mission, and core values
  • Accounts receivable — reducing accounts receivables by 25% in just three months
  • Administration — supervising an $8 million construction project
  • Business development — negotiating two successful acquisitions that generated $1.5 million in revenue; creating the U.S. and International Business Development departments
  • Information technology — creating remote, offshore service operations across India and the Philippines, increasing net profits and reducing work demand for U.S. staff; implementing measures to ensure a robust cybersecurity apparatus to protect sensitive client information

In 2019, the first year that he freely ran the firm, Mohammad facilitated a 30% increase in top-line revenue — after revenue had remained flat with little growth in the firm’s three prior years.

With his notable client legal victories and exceptional operational management, Mohammad has garnered significant industry attention over the years.

He is a standout member of Vistage Worldwide, a global peer mentoring organization for more than 23,000 accomplished CEOs and business owners. In 2019, the organization recognized Mohammad as one of three distinguished executives among 700 members in the Orange County region.

In addition, Mohammad has earned:

  • Recognition as a 2020 and 2021 Super Lawyer Rising Star, awarded to the top 2.5% of attorneys in California
  • The Top 20 Court Award from Top Verdict in 2016
  • The 2015 Torchbearer award from Mastery in Transformation Training
  • The 2011 Employment award from Jackson Lewis P.C.

However, Mohammad’s greatest achievement is the family he has built. He and his wife Dr. Mehwish Khan, a practicing medical physician, are the proud parents of two wonderful daughters, Emaan and Aiza.

To Mohammad, success means creating something greater than himself, but it goes beyond that. It has to leave a lasting, positive impact on those around him.

To deliver results to clients, he relies on his principles of working hard, finding solutions, relationship building, and being in service to others. But Mohammad strives to pay his experience forward in his community as well.

He has had the privilege to work with organizations that foster these core values. Armed with his skill set, Mohammad has served as:

  • A member of Development in Literacy — providing education to thousands of children in Pakistan
  • The Mentoring Chair and Board Member of the South Asian Bar Association of Southern California — facilitating community legal education and career development for South Asian law students
  • A speaker at the Asian Business Association of OC — promoting economic advancement for Asian Americans through networking, education, and community representation
