As a member of Keller Rohrback L.L.P.’s nationally recognized Complex Litigation Group, Max Goins gets to use his research and writing skills to help uncover the truth behind corporate malfeasance and misconduct. (“Who knew what, and when did they know it?”)
A 2017 summer associate at Keller Rohrback, Max was invited back to the firm in September 2018 to work on consumer protection and class action cases. He’s currently on the team investigating the high cost of EpiPens.
During law school at Lewis & Clark in Portland, Oregon, Max served as submissions editor for the Law Review. He also collaborated with Professor Robert Klonoff to update Klonoff’s complex litigation textbook, Class Actions and Other Multi-Party Litigation (4th Ed.). Max worked extensively with Professor Klonoff on the new cutting-edge chapter about multidistrict litigation (“MDL”). In addition, Max externed for Judge Ann Aiken of the District of Oregon, where he performed exhaustive legal research and wrote published opinions on issues like attorney fees, joining local Native American tribes as necessary parties, and the fairness of class action settlements.
When he’s not working, you can find Max at the movies, in retro arcades, mentoring law students at Lewis & Clark, or—weather permitting—at a tennis meet-up.
