Alison is a partner in Keller Rohrback’s nationally-recognized Complex Litigation Group.

Alison works tirelessly to hold corporations responsible for reckless and dangerous conduct that harms consumers and the public.

Alison is a key member of the team representing consumers affected by EpiPen price gouging, in the litigation In re: EpiPen (Epinephrine Injection, USP) Mktg., Sales Practices, & Antitrust Litig., MDL 2785 (D. Kan.). She has taken a central role in this important case, which seeks redress for millions of EpiPen purchasers who have been forced to pay skyrocketing prices for this necessary and life-saving medication. Alison is particularly proud to represent parents of children suffering severe allergies, who have been affected by monopolistic, unfair, and predatory practices. Keller Rohrback’s managing partner, Lynn Sarko, is co-lead of the litigation, and Alison has had a substantial role in briefing, written and deposition discovery, and expert work.

Alison is an integral member of the team representing a class of residents affected by the largest natural gas leak in U.S. history, Southern California Gas Leak Cases, JCCP No. 4861 (LA Superior). That gas leak devastated the community of Porter Ranch, causing the closure of schools and the relocation of tens of thousands of residents. Similarly, Alison has represented victims of the 2015 Santa Barbara Oil Spill in seeking redress for this environmental disaster.

In addition, Alison has a deep background in financial litigation. She has been a key member of the team representing the Federal Home Loan Banks of Chicago, Boston, and Indianapolis in mortgage-backed securities litigation against a host of Wall Street and international banks. These complex cases have resulted in the recovery of hundreds of millions of dollars for the firm’s clients. Alison has also represented consumers in a broad array of financial litigation, including in actions on behalf of mortgage borrowers, in actions arising from fraudulent account scandals, and actions relating to novel FinTech.

Alison also maintains an active practice in appellate and international law. She represented the Republic of the Marshall Islands in groundbreaking litigation before the International Court of Justice and U.S. Courts. Alison also represented a class consisting of the sitting judges of the State of Arizona in constitutional litigation that was resolved in her clients’ favor by the Arizona Supreme Court.

Having clerked for both a federal district court and for the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, Alison is deeply committed to civility, teamwork, and working cooperatively with opposing counsel. Alison’s broad litigation experience, which has included both plaintiff- and defense-side work, enables her to guide clients through a wide variety of complex litigation.

At home, Alison stays busy keeping up with her toddler and her rescue dog.
