Bird Marella partner Ekwan Rhow has been named to the Daily Journal‘s 2024 list of Leading Commercial Litigators for the second year in a row.
The annual list honors the top 100 attorneys across the U.S. “who lead major litigation in California and nationally.” As one of the country’s most prolific trial lawyers, Mr. Rhow consistently achieves significant victories for industry-leading companies and influential figures in complex, bet-the-company litigation and class actions.
Mr. Rhow’s Daily Journal profile details his prominence in data privacy class actions. After successfully resolving one of the largest class action settlements in the data privacy field (a $92 million settlement against TikTok), Mr. Rhow has expanded his class action practice to bring a series of follow-on class actions that seek billions of dollars in damages. Currently, he is spearheading a series of cutting-edge national class actions in federal district courts (in California, Washington, and New York) that attack the data privacy policies and interception of private data by companies such as Microsoft, TikTok, and Blue Shield.
In addition to Mr. Rhow’s experience in plaintiff-side class actions, he maintains a stellar reputation in defending clients in complex litigation and has an exceptional trial track record. The Daily Journal previously awarded him the coveted Top Defense Verdict award for his victory as lead trial counsel for healthcare and lifestyle brand FIGS against a dominant industry competitor.
