Biography

Benjamin Gould makes the law work for his clients. Ben, a Seattle native, practices in Keller Rohrback’s nationally recognized Complex Litigation Group. His ability to clearly and efficiently communicate factual and legal issues to his clients and courts allows him to advance the interests of those who have been harmed by others’ misconduct.

Ben has extensive experience in appellate litigation, and has secured successful results for his clients before the U.S. Courts of Appeals for the First, Second, Sixth, Eighth, and Ninth Circuits, as well as before numerous state appellate courts. Ben also maintains an active practice outside the appellate arena. He has represented clients in individual and class actions involving pensions, securities, and consumer-protection law, among a wide range of other subjects.

Before joining the firm, Ben worked as a Legal fellow of the ACLU Drug Law Reform Project, litigating cases related to drug policy and civil rights. He also served as a clerk to two federal appellate judges: the Honorable Betty Binns Fletcher of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit and the Honorable Diana E. Murphy of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit.
