Genc Arifi Joins Aronberg Goldgehn As an Associate in the Firm's Litigation Practice Group
Genc Arifi has joined Aronberg Goldgehn as an associate in the firm’s Litigation Practice Group.
Genc represents an expansive range of businesses in employment law matters as well as complex commercial litigation in both state and federal courts. He participates in all phases of litigation, including drafting pleadings, motions and memorandums of law. He conducts all phases of discovery, including e-discovery, and has contributed to the trial strategies in complex multimillion-dollar lawsuits.
His experience includes handling complex civil matters, such as cases arising out of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO), employment law matters, accounting malpractice and wrongful death cases, and analyzing financial documents in relation to commercial litigation matters.
Prior to joining Aronberg Goldgehn, Genc was an associate with Tobin & Muñoz, L.L.C., where he began his career as a law clerk.
Genc earned his J.D. from DePaul University College of Law in 2016. While at DePaul, he was part of the International Law Moot Court team and the International Human Rights Moot Court team. He also volunteered extensively in his community, earning him the Dean's Certificate of Service.
Genc demonstrated strong academic credentials throughout law school; most notably when he achieved the highest grade in Business Organizations, which earned him the CALI Excellence for the Future Award. Genc also participated in a criminal appeals clinic and successfully reduced an indigent client's prison sentence.
Genc is fluent in English and Albanian.
On a personal note, Genc immigrated to the United States when he was seven years old in order to escape the ethnic cleansing taking place in Kosovo at the time. His sense of justice began at an early age when he witnessed the injustices his family and millions of other Albanians faced under an oppressive Serb regime. Genc cultivated a fighting spirit that serves him to this day and allows him to effectively advocate on his client's behalf.
