Weil Complex Commercial Litigation partner Bambo Obaro has been named one of the Daily Journal’s 2020 Top 40 Under 40 in recognition of his expertise in high-stakes litigation and leadership in the legal community. The annual series recognizes 40 of California’s leading attorneys under the age of 40 across a range of practices. In January 2020, Mr. Obaro was promoted to partner in the Firm’s Silicon Valley office.
The Daily Journal’s profile highlighted Mr. Obaro’s work in the consumer class action space, noting his ongoing representation of Core-Mark Holding Co. in a multidistrict litigation regarding Juul e-cigarettes, which has been referred to as the “next generation of tobacco litigation,” and his defense of Starbucks in a high-profile class action regarding the company’s claims about the safety of its Manhattan stores.
The profile also noted Mr. Obaro’s leadership at Weil – he is a key member of the Professional Development Committee, the Diversity Committee and the Silicon Valley office’s Pro Bono Committee – and in the broader legal community. The Daily Journal highlighted his service as Co-Chair to the Lawyer Representatives to the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, where he helps to foster open communication between the federal bench and the council.
Mr. Obaro is the second Weil Complex Commercial Litigation partner to receive this honor in the last four years, following Weil partner David Singh in 2016.
