An associate in Lewis Wagner's litigation group, Barath S. Raman’s practice area includes the defense of personal injury, product liability, construction accident and defect, and environmental insurance coverage cases. Before law school, utilizing his B.S. from Purdue University in Construction Engineering, Barath worked as a Field Engineer for Mass Electric Construction Company. In connection with the light rail mass transit expansion project in Houston, Texas, Barath coordinated with and drafted contracts for sub-contractors; and, he also served as the project’s Environmental Compliance Manager. Mass Electric later asked Barath to serve as its Conduit & Utilities Field Engineer in Los Angeles, California for the I-405 Highway Expansion Project, where Barath edited civil engineering drawings to reflect as-built installations and coordinated with the various trades on work schedules, procurement of materials, and safety compliance. Barath embarked on his legal career in 2011 by enrolling at the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law, where he hoped to leverage his engineering background to develop a law practice including construction and environmental law. Prior to joining the Firm in 2014, Barath worked as a summer associate for Lewis Wagner and the Marion County Public Defender Agency in the Major Felony and Appeals Divisions. He performed legal research and assisted in the preparation of numerous court documents for various jury trials. Barath earned his J.D. cum laude from the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law, where he served as the President of the Student Bar Association.
