Karina Sargsian


222 South Main Street, Suite 2200, Salt Lake City, UT 84101

Ms. Sargsian has experience in all aspects of managing complex employment and commercial litigation in both state and federal courts. She actively engages with her clients and enjoys developing case plans and strategies to achieve her clients’ goals.

Ms. Sargsian provides advice and counsel to employers of all sizes on a full spectrum of both contentious and non-contentious employment matters—including drafting and evaluating restrictive covenants, drafting and negotiating employment, severance, and general release agreements, drafting effective personnel policies, and representing and advising employers in other workplace law matters. Additionally, Ms. Sargsian has particular experience in counseling and defending employers facing a broad array of employment-related claims, such as discrimination, retaliation, and harassment claims, as well as wage and hour violations.

Prior to joining Holland & Hart, Ms. Sargsian gained experience working for several judges, both at the Federal District Court level as well as the State trial court level. Her clerkships gave her an invaluable, behind-the-scenes insight into the judicial decision-making process and the legal system generally.
