While at Skadden, Sean handled “bet the company” litigation and represented clients ranging from a foreign sovereign to Fortune 25 companies in class action defense, securities litigation, and complex commercial litigation. Before founding Burstyn Law Firm, Sean completed a federal judicial clerkship in the Southern District of Florida.
In his twenties, Sean was an internationally licensed professional formula racecar driver, driver manager, and owner of a team that currently competes in the Indy Racing League and the historic Indianapolis 500 race.
