Elliot Ko represents food and medical device companies in multi-district and class-action lawsuits around the country. His goal is to make his clients’ lives easier by doing the work necessary to resolve their legal disputes, whether that means drafting a demand letter for a client who has been wronged, combing through thousands of documents in a complex case, fine-tuning a brief to win a case at the motion stage or preparing a case for trial.

Past Experience 

Before joining Faegre Drinker, Elliot clerked for two federal judges in Minnesota. He also worked for an immigration firm, a public interest law firm and a guardian ad litem in California and Virginia.

Before starting law school, Elliot operated a newspaper route and a lawn care business, assembled electrical poles for a grocery store, and helped build or remodel half a dozen homes in Oregon, Washington, New Mexico and Michigan.

Personal Interests

When he is not at the office, Elliot enjoys playing pond hockey, spending time with his wife and baby, and trying (mostly unsuccessfully) to learn the curious language of baby babbling.
