Speaker Information

David A. Lowe

Rudy, Exelrod, Zieff & Lowe LLP

David joined the Firm in 1996 and brings extensive trial and negotiation experience to every client engagement. Thoughtful reflection and integrity guide his client advocacy: whether helping a sexual harassment survivor share her story in a highly publicized court case or guiding a start-up founder through a confidential private equity buyout.

David represents C-level executives, founders, and partners in a wide range of tech economy and other fields, including life sciences, a.i., finance, and entertainment. He has developed valuable experience negotiating with—and, when necessary, going to trial against—the world’s largest and best- known public and private companies, as well as prominent private equity and venture capital firms. He also passionately represents employees, including low wage workers, who have been discriminated or retaliated against, harassed, wrongfully terminated, or denied fair pay for their work. In addition to representing clients, David serves as a neutral mediator, with a highly successful record of assisting parties to resolve their disputes.

David has been honored as California Lawyer “Attorney of the Year” for his “extraordinary achievement” in employment law and has been voted by his peers as one of the “Top 100” lawyers in Northern California every year since 2013, as a Northern California “SuperLawyer” since 2007, and as the San Francisco “Lawyer of the Year” for Employment Law or Employment Litigation for three years in a row.

David is also dedicated to working in the public interest and has served on the boards of numerous non-profit and legal organizations, including as Chair of the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights in the Bay Area.
