Rachael Rowe is a member of KMK's Litigation and Labor & Employment Practice Groups. She served as Co-Practice Group Leader for Litigation from 2010 to April 2012, when she was named as the firm's Executive Partner.

Rachael focuses her practice on complex commercial litigation and mass tort settlement trust and related counseling. On the litigation side, Rachael has defended a number of corporate clients facing employment, securities, financial services and consumer class action lawsuits, and also has litigated matters involving sales of businesses and claims related to investment and bankruptcy fraud. She has first chair trial experience in both federal and state courts throughout the country. In the mass tort space, Rachael represents trustees of settlement trusts and qualified settlement funds, advising clients on all aspects of trust and fund administration, including Medicare compliance and related issues.

Rachael also has experience working inside corporate legal departments. She spent two years "on loan" to one of the firm's largest clients, coordinating the work handled by its outside law firms, including managing litigation-related media attention, cost containment, insurance coverage and operational sustainability issues. In that role, Rachael came to understand the critical importance of ensuring that a company's legal services providers act as partners with their clients and always are responsive and efficient. Rachael has used that understanding to ensure that all of our clients get the best service at the best value, and that all KMK lawyers strive to serve as business partners to our clients.
