Genta began his legal career with Alston & Bird in its Atlanta office (2017–2020) where, owing to his bilingualism, he counseled Japanese corporations on their major U.S. mergers and acquisitions, investments, and general corporate governance issues. He then joined Sheppard, Mullin, Richter & Hampton LLP in its Century City office (2020–2022) where he focused his practice on transactions in the healthcare space.
