About Rupa Gupta Singh

Attorney Biography

Rupa G. Singh is a certified appellate specialist who handles appeals, writs, and critical motions in state and federal court. Her practice focuses on disputes in the areas of employment law, unfair competition, consumer fraud, putative class and PAGA claims, bad faith denial of coverage, real estate law, catastrophic injuries, arbitration contracts, and family law. Representative matters include a unanimous employment law victory in the California Supreme Court; settlements in a Ninth Circuit Section 1983 appeal and a Second Circuit banking fraud appeal; a reversal in an anti-SLAPP appeal; writs in family law, employment, and consumer fraud matters, including a certified class action against Apple; preparing counsel for argument in complex federal banking and putative class action appeals; successfully defending an interlocutory federal appeal under the Class Action Fairness Act; and assisting arbitrators with research and analysis for interim and final awards in technology licensing, disability, legal malpractice, and patent infringement disputes.  

Rupa served as a judicial law clerk to Judge Irma E. Gonzalez (Ret.) of the United States District Court for the Southern District of California, and later, as an ethics law clerk to Judge M. Margaret McKeown of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. She previously litigated complex business disputes at two Am Law 100 firms, including as a partner, and served as appellate practice chair for a Midwest firm. Over the last two decades, Rupa has been an engaged and resourceful community leader, receiving many peer-nominated local and national awards for her leadership, pro bono advocacy, and civic contributions. Among other honors, Rupa has been chosen by SuperLawyers® as a Top 50 Lawyer in San Diego and Top 25 Women Lawyers in San Diego as well as by Best Lawyers in America® for appellate advocacy.

Rupa publishes a quarterly appellate tips column, and writes and speaks on topics ranging from Supreme Court jurisprudence and appellate trends to the elimination of bias and leadership skills. Rupa is married to a telecommunications engineer, and the proud mother of three.
