Keller Rohrback is proud to announce that Eric Laliberte, Holly Lynch and Matthew Preusch have been named our newest partners, effective January 1, 2022.

Eric Laliberte practices out of our Seattle office in our Commercial Litigation Group as well as in our Probate and Trust Group. With a background in finance, his work focuses on cases involving business litigation, real estate litigation, and trust and estate litigation.  In his personal life, Eric serves as the President of the Lake Washington School Board and has been a board member since 2015. Prior to joining Keller Rohrback, Eric served as a Law Clerk in the Bureau of Consumer Protection of the Federal Trade Commission, where he worked on behalf of consumers in litigation involving online fraud.

Holly Lynch also practices out of our Seattle office in our Commercial Litigation Group, where she handles a wide variety of complex civil cases, including contract disputes and matters involving allegations of business torts, premises liability, products liability, professional malpractice, False Claims Act violations, and personal injury. Holly also represents individuals and health care entities in licensing board administrative proceedings.  Prior to joining Keller Rohrback, Holly worked as a civil litigation attorney in the Seattle area. Before entering private practice, Holly served as a law clerk to the Honorable Marywave Van Deren in the Washington State Court of Appeals. 

Matthew Preusch practices out of our Santa Barbara office in our Complex Litigation group.  Matthew is passionate about protecting people and the environment. He has helped initiate landmark consumer litigation related to Volkswagen’s “Clean Diesel” deceit and Wells Fargo’s unauthorized account scheme. When studies of moss samples in trees in Portland, Oregon identified several pollution “hotspots” in that city, he and others at Keller Rohrback launched cases on behalf of residents to hold the responsible manufacturers accountable, resulting in the largest environmental class action settlement in Oregon history. He represents victims of the massive Oregon Labor Day fires in ongoing litigation against the utility alleged to have started them. Working on behalf of government entities, including the State of Oregon, Matthew has investigated or is litigating claims related to PCB contamination and the opioid epidemic. Before joining Keller Rohrback, Matthew served as an honors attorney in the Oregon Department of Justice’s appellate and trial divisions. He was a judicial extern for the Hon. Michael W. Mosman in the District of Oregon during law school. Prior to his legal career, he spent 10 years as a journalist in the Pacific Northwest, covering regional and national news for The Oregonian, The New York Times and other publications.  

Please join us in congratulating Eric, Holly and Matthew!
