Prior to joining The Chartwell Law Offices, Mr. Gross was a partner with Sedgwick, Detert, Moran & Arnold, where he oversaw the firm’s commercial litigation practice and represented a major municipal authority in premises liability and police misconduct suits. He also devised defenses to suits against that municipality that were subsequently adopted throughout the firm.

Recently, Mr. Gross obtained summary judgment in a number of high exposure defense cases: one against a major landowner involving claims of electrocution to two workers; and another involving a claim of "special use” by that landowner. Mr. Gross also obtained summary judgment on a breach of contract claim by a merchant against a Fortune 500 credit card company and summary judgment on a "goods sold and delivered” claim on behalf of a major home shopping advertiser.
