Dwight Rabuse focuses his law practice in civil litigation and dispute resolution. He also offers broad-based general counsel support to commercial clients in Minnesota and around the country. In both federal and state courts, in trials and on appeal, he has secured substantial victories for his clients in construction law, employment law, intellectual property, contract law, and personal injury cases.

Following graduation from law school, Dwight practiced for several years with the United States Department of Justice in Washington, D.C. He supported senior Justice Department officials on judicial selection and legal policy matters and served as a speechwriter for the Attorney General. As a Special Assistant in the Civil Division, he briefed and argued more than 25 federal appeals and authored numerous certiorari petitions and briefs to the United States Supreme Court.

A native Minnesotan, Dwight returned to the Twin Cities in 1990 and practiced in the area of construction law where he represented clients from all sectors of the industry, including general contractors, subcontractors, design professionals, and sureties. In 1994 he joined Honeywell as Senior Counsel for the Home and Building Control business unit, becoming the company’s lead construction lawyer. At Honeywell, he led efforts to reform and improve contract documents, practices, and training and managed outside counsel. After leaving Honeywell and before joining DeWitt, he founded and managed a successful Twin Cities law firm.

Dwight has built a broad and successful national litigation and transactional practice. He serves regional, national, and international clients across a broad spectrum of civil law matters, including the negotiation of business contracts, protection of intellectual property, and employment-related issues.

Outside the office, for several years Dwight hosted a locally produced political news and commentary radio program. He makes regular guest appearances on local and national radio programs and contributes to a variety of legal and academic publications. Dwight is a past president of the Twin Cities Chapter of the Federalist Society, an active member of the Construction Law section of the Minnesota State Bar Association. An Eagle Scout, he serves in a variety of volunteer and leadership roles in the Boy Scouts and the Catholic Church.
