Bijan is an associate practicing in the areas of business and commercial litigation, business and corporate law, employment and labor law, and probate, estate, and trust litigation. His experience as a business owner coupled with his master’s degree in business provides a unique perspective to help his clients navigate the regulatory landscape and craft efficient solutions to formidable problems.
In his practice, Bijan helps startups and businesses with many of the challenges he faced as a business owner. He has assisted with the purchase and sale of a local technology company, executive compensation agreements, as well as non-compete and intellectual property issues. His litigation practice covers many areas, including employment disputes, unfair trade practice claims, breach of contract, copyright infringement, property disputes, will contests, insurance claims, and catastrophic personal injury.
Before joining the firm, Bijan worked as a law clerk for the firm during the summers of 2016 and 2017. He also interned with the City of Charleston’s Corporate Counsel and with the College of Charleston’s NCAA Compliance Department. Bijan earned his MBA from the College of Charleston while graduating magna cum laude from the Charleston School of Law. During law school, he served as Treasurer and Vice President of the Business Law Society, and competed in the 2016 Billings, Exum & Frye National Moot Court Competition at Elon University on behalf of the school’s Moot Court Board. He assisted with several publications on federal civil procedure topics, in addition to “The Road to ODC is Often Paved With Good Intentions,” a presentation at the 2015 South Carolina Annual Judicial Conference.
Prior to law school, Bijan founded and led a web development company that specialized in creating SaaS (software as a service) products engineered to solve problems for both small businesses and corporate clients. He is also one of the founders of Jockbrokers, a patented software application, which operates as the first asset-based sports investing platform. During this time, Bijan was actively involved in the cryptocurrency industry, as an early adopter of Bitcoin and founder of Universal Bitcoin—later sold to a foreign trader. As part of the founding team of these companies, and as an early investor in others, Bijan drafted and experienced issues related to LLC agreements, non-compete and non-disclosure agreements, purchase and sale agreements, service agreements, intellectual property licensing and protection, and database security and architecture.
Outside of his practice, Bijan enjoys coaching youth soccer, cheering on the Gamecocks, discovering new technologies, and spending time with his dog.
