Alan Exelrod gained fame as one of the attorneys who tried Weeks v. Baker & McKenzie, the case that put sexual harassment litigation on the national map. But Exelrod, of Rudy, Exelrod & Zieff, is no one trial pony. Two years after scoring a $7 million verdict in Weeks (reduced on appeal to $3.5 million), he obtained a $3.5 million verdict in a harassment case against Safeway, teaming up again with his Weeks co-counsel, Philip Kay. Around the same time he was obtaining settlements for harassment on behalf of three women against ICN Pharmaceuticals and its CEO, Milan Panic, the former prime minister of Yugoslavia. That case made worldwide headlines. In the past several years he has won a $1.2 million verdict for an insurance company employee who refused to sign a non-compete agreement and a $2.7 million verdict against Oracle Corp. in a whistle-blower case — each of which was upheld in published opinions on appeal. A judge familiar with Exelrod describes him as “very cerebral, very smart, very well-prepared.” While one attorney who has litigated against him says he’s “not the most imposing courtroom presence,” he says Exelrod is “highly effective” at getting a good result for clients.
