Raymond Farrow understands the economics behind his clients’ cases. Ray, a member of Keller Rohrback’s nationally recognized Complex Litigation Group, is a litigation attorney whose practice focuses on antitrust and consumer protection. His background as an academic economist and teacher makes him uniquely qualified to work with economic experts and to communicate statistics and economic analysis to his clients and to the Court.
Working on antitrust matters, Ray must navigate the rules and issues of varied industries, including hi-tech industries involving constantly changing software and hardware. His many years of experience, strong working relationships with other antitrust litigators, and motivation to redress genuine harms to his clients help him tackle complex issues in litigation and across the negotiating table. Most recently, Ray represented 20,000 nurses in a lawsuit that alleged a conspiracy by certain hospitals in Detroit to depress compensation levels that recovered almost $90 million for the nurses.
Prior to law school, Ray was a member of the Economics Department faculty at Seattle University, University of Washington, and Queen’s University in Canada. While in law school, he served as Articles Editor of the Washington Law Review and as an intern for the U.S. Department of Labor.
In his spare time, Ray enjoys playing soccer and skiing.
