Paras B. Barnett
I departed a national firm to form my own law practice focusing on the current needs of the business market. I represent clients in the areas of complex commercial litigation and transactional matters ranging from, distressed debt workouts, for real and personal property asset liquidations, complex multi-state foreclosures, transition services and receiverships to general business, leasing and real estate matters. I have successfully conducted prosecution and defense for litigation claims arising from guaranty, indemnity, business fraud, dissolution, fiduciary breach and general commercial and intellectual property breaches. I am highly rated by Martindale Hubbell. I have been fortunate to work with excellent firms internationally and in Las Vegas, Nevada that honed my skills in litigation and transactional practices in the areas of real estate, business law, finance, business structuring and intellectual property. I also served a judicial clerkship for the Honorable Ronald D. Parraguirre, now Justice to the Nevada Supreme Court. Prior to my residence in Nevada, I practiced as a visiting attorney at the international law firm of Gaedertz Rechtsanwälten (now, C|M|S Hasche Seigle) in Cologne, Germany. I received my undergraduate degrees and a post-graduate certificate from the University of Utah and was awarded my law degree from Gonzaga University School of Law. I obtained a Master of Laws (LL.M / Legum Magister) in transnational business from the University of the Pacific’s McGeorge School of Law, in affiliation with the Law Faculty of the University of Salzburg, Austria, where I was an Emil E. Schnelbacher scholar for German and Austrian legal studies. I am a member of the Nevada and Washington (inactive) State Bars. I am business fluent in Dutch and German. I would welcome the opportunity to discuss how my firm can address your business needs. Best regards, Paras B. Barnett, LL.M

After spending six years practicing with a large, national law firm, I joined Barnett & Associates to focus on cultivation of clients and their needs. I am experienced in all aspects of litigation in the State of Nevada, including appellate, bad faith insurance defense, business, construction and subrogation matters. Originally from Michigan, I received my undergraduate degree from Michigan State University and was awarded my law degree from Case Western Reserve University. Immediately following law school, I moved to Northern Nevada to serve as a judicial clerk to the Honorable Justice Michael A. Cherry of the Nevada Supreme Court. I moved to Las Vegas in 2010 to be closer to family and begin my law practice. I quickly became recognized as one of the more talented young attorneys in Las Vegas, Nevada and was named Legal Elite by Nevada Business Magazine for 2016. I am very active in the Las Vegas community, including serving as a board member of Jewish Nevada’s young adult division, Jewish Nevada Young Leaders (JNYL), serving on Jewish Nevada’s Community Relations Committee, and serving as Chairman of the Young Adult Partnership Committee for the partnership between Jewish Nevada and its sister community in Israel, named Ramat HaNegev. Jewish Nevada named me the David L. Simon Young Leader of the Year for 2016. My commitment to this firm’s clients and the Las Vegas community, combined with my experience, allows me to vehemently and professionally represent our clients, and find continued success in those representations.
