Tasha Schwikert is a senior associate in the corporate group. She represents clients in mergers and acquisitions, including a merger transaction that was over $100 million in value.  She also supports the firm’s commercial real estate transaction practice with purchase and sale transactions ranging from $20 to $60 million a month. As a former Olympic gymnast, Tasha is also a member of the sports practice, focusing on amateur athletes and the legal issues they face.  Being an athlete for 25 years helps her understand the dynamic of what a high-level athlete goes through, and she has the experience of being both an Olympian and a collegiate athlete on the UCLA gymnastics team for four years on a full scholarship.

Tasha became an advocate for institutional change within USA Gymnastics and the United States Olympic Committee, motivating her to attend law school in her late 20s. She now serves as co-chair of the special committee for over 500 Larry Nassar survivors. Tasha testified before Congress on behalf of the Nassar survivors and continues to advocate for institutional change within USA Gymnastics and the United States Olympic Committee.
