Christopher J. Rausch, Esq. Senior Vice President & General Counsel

The Rausch Family

The Rattler (it's a good story, call and ask Chris) 

Chris joined Lockard in January 2015, having previously spent 23 years as a practicing attorney representing large corporations, medium and smaller companies, family enterprises, and individuals, in both transactional-contract matters and in litigation. Chris served as lead transactional counsel (real estate, construction, and financing) in the acquisition, disposition, financing, workout/forbearance, development, and construction representing 5,000 acres, valued in excess of Three Hundred Million Dollars ($300,000,000), in eleven states, while serving in the General Counsel role at Novus Development and Commercial Development Company, as well as while in private practice. Chris graduated from the University of Missouri with a degree in Finance and Economics, and received his law degree from St. Louis University. Chris is licensed to practice law in Missouri, Iowa, and Illinois.

Chris definitely married ‘above my pay grade’, as they say, when he found Denice.  They have been married for 18 years, and have two sons, Brad (16 years old) and John (13 years old).  Denice has always made our Catholic faith and our family her absolute priority, and for that our family is truly blessed and I will be eternally thankful.  Our sons both excel in math and science.  Brad is our piano player.  He has taken lessons for 9 years and has a number of students he teaches.  John is our baseball player.  An exceptional pitcher, catcher, and hitter.

“We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be.” Kurt Vonnegut
