Aaron Krauss is a business litigator with more than 30 years of experience representing corporations and individuals in business disputes. He concentrates his practice in the areas of commercial, health, employment, and intellectual property litigation.
A veteran trial lawyer, Aaron has won numerous verdicts in high-stakes litigation in state and federal courts and before arbitration panels. As satisfying as vindication in court may be, Aaron also recognizes that trial victories are pyrrhic at best if the cost is too great in dollars, time, or lost relationships. Aaron is mindful that any specific issue or dispute must be addressed in a way that best advances his client’s broader business goals.
Aaron is a highly respected member of the business litigation bar and has held various leadership roles within the American Bar Association (ABA). He is currently a member of the ABA Book Publishing Board and served previously as chair of the Health Law Committee and vice chair of the Business Torts Committee of the Tort and Insurance Practice Section.
Aaron is the former articles editor of the ABA’s Tort & Insurance Law Journal, former associate editor of the Philadelphia Bar Association’s Handbook of Federal Judicial Practices and Procedures for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, and wrote/edited An Introduction to Health Law Litigation Based on Contract and Government Claims, published by the ABA’s First Chair Press.
Beyond the law, Aaron is involved with local civic, charitable, and community organizations. He served on the board of directors of Philabundance, an anti-hunger nonprofit, for nearly two decades, including terms as chair, vice chair, and treasurer. He has also held leadership positions with the United Way, Keneseth Israel, Moss Rehabilitation Hospital, and the Abington Band Boosters.
