Aaron Krauss

Aaron Krauss is a member of Cozen O'Connor who practices in the Commercial Litigation Department in the Philadelphia office. He concentrates his practice on business litigation, labor and employment litigation and intellectual property litigation. Aaron has practiced at Cozen O’Connor since 1998.

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. 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 since 2013, and is currently the vice chair of the Health Law Committee. 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 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 has 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, since 2001. He served as chairman from 2008-2010, as vice-chairman from 2010-2011 and as treasurer from 2004-2007. Aaron is active in the United Way, and has headed a team of attorneys who work with the United Way's Campaign for Working Families. He has also served on the board of directors of Keneseth Israel, and as an officer of the congregation. Finally, he serves on the board of the Abington Band Boosters.

Aaron served as a law clerk to the Hon. Edward N. Cahn, U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, from 1991-1992.
