You can count on Maissa Chouraki to get the job done. As a member of Keller Rohrback’s nationally recognized Complex Litigation Group, Maissa is dedicated to achieving solutions that make a positive impact on her clients’ lives.
Maissa is a skilled communicator with extensive experience in intellectual property law. She previously was an associate at Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan in California where she represented clients on issues regarding copyright, patent, trade secret and breach of contract.
Maissa became interested in complex litigation after earning her undergraduate degree in anthropology from the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. She wanted to pursue a career that allowed her to apply theory and her analytic skills.
Maissa’s family emigrated to the United States from France when she was 2 years old. The court system was instrumental in helping her family understand American culture. “The way the courts work, who has access, what kind of cases get dismissed is reflective of what we value as a society,” she says. She is passionate about finding ways to make the complicated court system more equitable and accessible to all.
When she’s not working, Maissa enjoys baking, hiking and skiing.
