Rachel Bowanko is a 2022 graduate of Stanford Law School, who graduated with pro bono distinction. 

Rachel rejoined Keller Rohrback in the Seattle office after serving as a Summer Associate with the firm in 2020 and 2021 and completing a federal clerkship with Judge Marilyn L. Huff at the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California. Her exposure to and experience with complex cases requiring creative solutions has laid an outstanding foundation for her further associate work in the firm’s nationally-recognized Complex Litigation Group. 

Rachel was drawn to the firm because of its success in groundbreaking cases such as In re Volkswagen “Clean Diesel” Marketing, Sales Practices, and Products Liability Litigation, which produced financial remedies coupled with lasting and effective solutions for large-scale issues relating to environmental protection, renewable energy, and consumer health and safety among others. As a summer associate she participated in the In re JUUL Labs, Inc. Marketing., Sales Practices, & Products Liability Litigation, brought in the wake of the youth vaping epidemic. 

Rachel is a firm believer in the ability of complex litigation to ensure corporate accountability and create lasting positive ripple effects. Excited to have returned to the firm, Rachel currently focuses on complex multidistrict litigation, including representing government entities in the Insulin Overpricing litigation and the PFAS litigation. 

While at Stanford, Rachel served as Co-President of the Stanford Law Association, a Board Member for the Plaintiffs’ Lawyers Association, and as the Senior Development Editor of the Stanford Law Review. She was also a member of Stanford’s Environmental Law Clinic. 
In Rachel’s free time, she enjoys hiking, traveling, baking scones, and spending time with her dogs.
