Christopher Renz ’01
Adjunct: Legal Writing
Chris Renz is a go-to litigator for businesses and individuals who seek relief against another party or defending a claim brought against them. Clients appreciate the experience that Renz brings to the table; he has litigated cases for years in a score of arenas from courtroom trials before juries to arbitrations at kitchen tables. While maintaining an emphasis in the areas of real estate and commercial litigation, his litigation skill set is rounded by work in other areas including class action work, employment law, criminal law, and construction litigation. While many attorneys clamor for the chance to try a case to a jury, his role as the prosecuting attorney for the Metropolitan Airports Commission has afforded Renz the opportunity to repeatedly hone his trial skills, all to the benefit of the varied clients he represents. Serving as a legal writing instructor at the University of Minnesota Law School since 2003 keeps him grounded and his writing sharp.
