About Me

I head the commercial litigation group in the Seattle office of Keller Rohrback L.L.P.  (The firm also has offices in New York City; Phoenix; and Santa Barbara, CA.)  My practice focuses on complex commercial litigation involving business disputes, including unfair competition, and real estate disputes.  I also have extensive experience litigating banking disputes, partnership disputes, and securities claims.  I have litigated since 1983 in state and federal trial and appellate courts in various states, and have experience resolving commerical, real estate, business, and securities disputes in a variety of arbitration forums and through mediation.

  • David James Russell

    Rob is an oustanding attorney. I have worked with Rob on many cases and, in every case, he has aggressively and professionally represented his client, regardless of the amount of money at issue. Rob takes his role as an advocate very seriously and frequently works evenings and weekends to write a critical motion or interview a critical witness, if that is what it takes to get the job done.
