Aaron Krauss concentrates his practice on business litigation, health care litigation, labor and employment litigation, and intellectual property litigation.
Aaron tries cases in both state and federal court and before arbitration panels on behalf of companies (or officers, directors or shareholders of companies) who have disputes with other companies or shareholders. These disputes usually arise out of a prior business or employment relationship, or allegations of product liability. Although clients always want to win their case, Aaron recognizes that business goals must remain paramount, and a victory that comes at too great a cost either in terms of dollars spent or the harm to an otherwise important relationship is at best a pyrrhic victory. As a result, he provides practical advice recognizing that the lawsuit he is handling is only a part of a larger whole.
Aaron has been named one of "40 Business Leaders Under 40" by the Philadelphia Business Journal and as a "Lawyer on the Fast Track" in Pennsylvania by American Lawyer Media. He has repeatedly been named a "Super Lawyer" in Pennsylvania by Law & Politics.
Aaron has held various leadership roles within the American Bar Association's Litigation Section, including as and a member of the ABA Book Publishing Board (2019-present) and as the chair of the Health Law Committee (2016-17). Aaron is a former vice chair of the Business Torts Committee of the American Bar Association’s Tort and Insurance Practice Section (1999–2004) and a former articles editor of the Tort & Insurance Law Journal (1995–1999). He wrote and edited the book An Introduction to Health Law Litigation Based on Contract and Government Claims (ABA First Chair Press, 2016). He was also an associate editor of the Handbook of Federal Judicial Practices and Procedures for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, published by the Philadelphia Bar Association in conjunction with West Publishing Company (1996).
Outside of the law, Aaron is very involved with civic, charitable, and community organizations. For nearly two decades, Aaron served on the board of directors of Philabundance, a charitable organization that arranges for food that would otherwise be wasted to be distributed to community and relief organizations, including two years as chairman, one year as vice chairman, and four years as treasurer. Aaron is active in the United Way, and headed a team of attorneys who work with the United Way's Campaign for Working Families. He has served on the board of directors of Keneseth Israel, and as an officer of the congregation, as well as on the advisory board of the Moss Rehabilitation Hospital.
