DALLAS, TX--()--Dallas business litigator Jim Grau has been honored among an elite group of business litigation attorneys nationwide considered as outstanding in their areas by the Super Lawyers organization.
“People often want their day in court”
Grau, managing partner of the Dallas business litigation boutique Grau Koen, PC, has been selected to the list of Texas Super Lawyers since 2004. This is his second time to be included in the Business Edition, which is divided into five distinct practice groups – business litigation, employment law, construction law, real estate and environmental law, business and transactional law and intellectual property law.
Like all business litigation attorneys selected to the Business Edition, Grau underwent a rigorous, multistage process in which peer nominations and evaluations are combined with independent research. Researchers evaluate candidates by 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement, from information gathered from a variety of online and database sources.
Grau is a prolific Dallas business litigator whose firm emphasizes six areas of practice – business litigation, catastrophic loss, construction litigation, energy litigation, professional liability and transportation litigation. He also follows the philosophy of trial advocacy, which is the belief that although alternative dispute resolution is helpful in many cases, sometimes cases cannot settle and must be submitted to a judge or jury.
“People often want their day in court,” Jim Grau says. “Many impediments have been placed in the way of people getting a jury trial, though, and people have lost that right in many different types of cases and jurisdictions. It has become an art, knowing the hoops you must jump through to bring your case to court.”
Jim Grau and partner Karl Koen founded Grau Koen in 1992, and now they lead a firm of nine business litigation attorneys. Both Grau and Koen have made the Texas Super Lawyers list. Super Lawyers is a nationwide organization and a service of Thomson Reuters.
Grau Koen, PC, is a small Dallas litigation boutique that concentrates in business litigation, transportation litigation, construction litigation, energy litigation, catastrophic loss and professional liability.
