Rod Ganske is a highly experienced litigator who works closely with clients to resolve complex civil litigation cases. Skilled at managing myriad details and facts, Rod works closely with clients engaged in large matters involving multiple parties, thousands of docket entries, and millions of dollars in potential damages.
Drawing on many years of experience working on complex litigation cases, Rod is adept at effectively managing matters that might otherwise be overwhelming for a client or disruptive to the course of business. He is able to dig deep into the facts and identify the nuts and bolts of the issues that are of greatest significance. Clients rely on Rod to not only synthesize massive amounts of information and analyze and prioritize key issues but also to tell them what they need to know in an abbreviated, concise, and understandable way.
Rod is masterful at stepping into high-risk, high exposure multi-district litigation cases and developing strategies to resolve them in the most cost-effective and efficient manner possible. He has successfully counseled clients in casualty cases for reinsurers involving upwards of $50M, navigated the complexities of excess insurer cases with claims of over $30M, and effectively counseled a client facing significant exposure related to the opioid epidemic. Rod utilizes his economics background and years of experience to effectively manage outside experts and develop and present winning damages arguments in civil litigation.
Rod is also highly effective in conducting high-stakes internal investigations, particularly in instances where the risks of litigation and publicity are acute. He has actively been engaged in whistleblower, wrongful termination, and employee conduct matters for multiple municipalities. Several of these matters have received national coverage in the media.
