Mr. Thairani is a lawyer at Gutride Safier LLP. Prior to working with Gutride Safier LLP, Mr. Thairani was a litigation associate at Latham & Watkins LLP. Mr. Thairani has experience litigating complex matters involving human trafficking, white collar crime, SEC violations and consumer class actions.

Mr. Thairani is a member of the New York State Bar. He received his juris doctorate from Duke University School of Law where he was awarded the Frank Warren Snepp Jr. Scholarship and was a staff editor on the Duke Journal of Constitutional Law and Public Policy. He obtained his bachelor of arts from the University of California, Los Angeles in political science.

While at Latham & Watkins, Mr. Thairani helped represent 47 plaintiffs in the largest human trafficking civil action in United States history. The clients were among more than 500 Indian laborers who Signal International illegally recruited to conduct post-Hurricane Katrina repair work in the Gulf of Mexico. After Signal International won the initial class certification battle, Latham & Watkins joined a team of firms coordinated by the Southern Poverty Law Center that filed individual suits on behalf of the plaintiffs. The action resulted in a $20 million dollar settlement agreement for the victims.
