Prior to MGM Resorts, Hagopian was an attorney with Gibson Dunn, a top-tier international law firm representing many Fortune 100 companies. At the firm, he was a member of the corporate transactions and securities practice group, negotiated complex M&A transactions and advised public companies on governance and securities law matters.
