Meet Keller Rohrback’s 2019 Summer Associates
Emma Wright, Seattle University School of Law
Emma’s fierce intelligence and attention to detail allows her to delve into the legal intricacies of every case. Emma brings great enthusiasm to Keller Rohrback’s nationally recognized Complex Litigation Group–a practice for which she is well suited, as each case is unique and intellectually demanding.
Having aspired to be an attorney since childhood, Emma was initially drawn to litigation when she took a civil procedure course in law school and learned just how complex and rule-intensive litigation is. In addition, Emma sees complex litigation as an avenue with which to hold large corporations accountable, which connects to her personal dedication to equity.
Emma is a rising 3L at Seattle University School of Law, where she serves as Editor-in-Chief of the Seattle University Law Review, on the Moot Court Board, and as a research assistant to her civil procedure professor. Drawn to the firm’s culture of collaboration and commitment to social justice, this is Emma’s second year as a summer associate at Keller Rohrback.
In her spare time, Emma enjoys skiing, traveling, and spending time with her dog, Winter.
Sydney Read, University of Colorado Law School
Sydney’s diligent care for the written word and zeal for learning new areas of law allow her to create strong and eloquently written arguments. Her high degree of intellectual curiosity, continued passion for law, and commitment to social justice make her a great fit for Keller Rohrback’s Complex Litigation Group.
Initially, Sydney was a part of the firm as a research analyst in KR’s Santa Barbara office and later as a paralegal in the Seattle office. Those experiences taught her the intricacies of complex litigation, the excitement of the legal industry in general, and the welcoming nature of the KR community. She now attends law school as a 2L at CU Boulder and has returned to KR as one of our summer associates.
Outside of work, Sydney enjoys running, skiing, and volunteering at CU’s RAP Lab.
