Susan Agopian is a Principal and Leader of Market Development and Expansion at Lateral Link. She specializes in partner and group representation nationwide.

Born and raised in Bulgaria, Susan brings a unique and worldly perspective to her current position. She spent her formative years traveling through Europe with her mother, a prima ballerina, before making Los Angeles her permanent home in 1994 and allowing basketball to complement her lifelong love affair with soccer. Susan’s MA in Philosophy enabled her to turn down Virginia law school, instead spending over 15 years in the headhunting profession.

Susan manages to balance her work life with a wide range of culinary and bucket list items. An animal lover, she is a passionate supporter of the ASPCA and the Humane Society. She is also a mom, a movie buff, 70s music fan, car enthusiast and an avid follower of Grand Prix motorcycle racing.

I was not excited about the prospect of a lateral move. Susan not only brought me focus, but her guidance made the process as painless as possible. While I always tend to be skeptical of headhunters, it quickly became clear that Susan was not simply following random leads hoping for a hit, but she was being driven by a very clear vision for a specific move that actually made sense, based on research, a deep understanding of the law firm, and an appreciation for what it takes to be successful in the business of law. I feel very lucky Susan was there every step of the way.
