Chuck has been trying cases to judges, juries, and arbitrators for 25 years. Winning trials in commercial cases depends on simplifying complex subject matter and telling the client’s story in an understandable and persuasive way. Chuck enjoys translating the complex into plain English. And that has enabled him to win trial victories in a wide variety of commercial areas, most recently in successfully defending an eight-figure claim against the University of Minnesota and successfully defending a medical-device client in the first two bellwether trials in a federal multi-district litigation (MDL).
Chuck is one of Minnesota’s leading appellate specialists. He is one of only four lawyers to be rated a Band 1 appellate practitioner in Minnesota. He has been involved in nearly 100 appeals in state and federal appellate courts across the country and is known for his vibrant and straightforward writing and argument.
