After graduating from Loyola, Agrusa joined Baker & Hostetler LLP and was immediately assigned to the largest anti-trust case pending in the state of California in 1991. From that moment on, Agrusa would spend 180 court days over the next decade trying the case. “As a young lawyer, I was sitting second and third chair in federal court, and it was truly career-defining. The experience and quality of mentoring that I received in such a prominent role set me up for a lot of my success,” she said. From there, her legal career took flight. She started practicing in intellectual property, focusing on trademark and copyright in the 1990s.
