Jon Rauchway is a partner in the Trial Department who assists clients with business disputes. His approach to solving litigation problems is summarized as follows:
I bring a pragmatic and unpretentious focus to litigation. I have served as lead counsel in cases where hundreds of millions of dollars are in dispute, but I recognize that the amount of money at stake does not necessarily correlate to the importance of a case to a given client, and I give every case and every client the attention they deserve in an efficient and cost-effective manner. As a trial lawyer, my primary job is to win, plain and simple—and our track record of litigation success at DGS compares favorably with anyone in the business. However, in keeping with a national civil trial rate consistently below 3 percent, I also understand that our job extends beyond trying cases and preparing cases for trial. Accordingly, I give equal attention to positioning cases for settlement, and on helping our clients to make the best business decision by weighing all the relevant considerations.
