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.

  • Debra Kay Synovec

    I have known Rob Crichton for several years. Quite simply, Rob is one of the finest commercial lawyers that I know, and I have great respect for him. He is an exceptionally intelligent, skilled, diligent, and personable lawyer; his skill reflects a combination of substantive knowledge, effective strategy, sound judgment, and common sense. Rob’s character and ethics are beyond reproach. In addition to being an excellent lawyer, Rob is as good a person as you could hope to find. If I were in need of a commercial litigator, Rob would be my first choice, and I recommend him without reservation.
