Gregory Haroutounian’s work on a series of cases has led to impressive, multimillion-dollar results for Ross Feller Casey clients.
Most recently, Haroutounian assisted founding partner Matt Casey in obtaining what is reported to be the largest known verdict in the history of Chester County, Pa. — $18 million in a July 2022 case involving the failure to diagnose and treat breast cancer in a young woman (read about the case). Also working with Casey, Haroutounian helped secure an $8.1 million recovery in a product liability case and $4.85 million in a case involving a delay in surgically treating a spinal cord compression that resulted in paralysis.
He assisted founding partner Robert Ross in reaching recoveries in several significant cases, including $13 million for a delay in delivery resulting in cerebral palsy, $10.5 million, in New Jersey, for the failure to timely diagnose and treat a stroke, and $9.3 million for an embolization procedure that caused paralysis.
He also helped founding partner Joel Feller obtain a $7 million settlement for a family of a truck driver who died in a crash caused by a defective steering assembly, and a $5 million settlement in a lawsuit alleging administrators at a school district failed to prevent a teacher from sexually abusing a student.
Haroutounian began his professional career in 2000 at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP in Washington, DC. As an associate in the firm’s Litigation Group, he focused on complex commercial litigation, representing clients in Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings, contractual disputes, and business fraud matters. Haroutounian also drafted the Washington D.C.‘s Litigation Group Manual on attorney-client privilege and work-product doctrine.
In 2007, Haroutounian joined Dechert, LLP, as an associate in the Litigation Group, where he represented a major pharmaceutical company and a global oil and gas enterprise.
Throughout his legal career at both Skadden and Dechert, Haroutounian successfully represented pro-bono clients in matters ranging from landlord/tenant disputes, divorce proceedings, and criminal matters.
