Chair of the firm’s Employment Law group, Naran attended high school in Watsonville and received his undergraduate degree from Santa Clara University. He earned his J.D., with distinction, from the University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law.

Naran’s foreign and domestic business clients with operations and employees in California value his in-depth knowledge of state-specific nuances in employment law – particularly critical in the context of global merger & acquisition deals. Naran also exemplifies Hoge Fenton’s commitment to providing holistic services to its business clients by regularly partnering with the firm’s attorneys in other practice areas, including mergers & acquisitions, tax, intellectual property, and real estate.

Managing shareholder, Daniel W. Ballesteros, said, “We congratulate Sarju on this achievement and our shareholders could not be happier to have him join us. Sarju’s client-specific, hands-on personal approach to serving our clients is one of many reasons why we are the smart alternative to ‘big law.’”
