Commercial Litigation

Intensity and Experience

At every step, we have your business's best interests in mind. 

Our seasoned trial attorneys have honed their business litigation skills in a wide range of disputes, including:

  • Shareholder disputes
  • Employment claims
  • Breach of contract cases
  • Partnership disputes
  • Valuation disputes

Our lawyers focus on obtaining success for you, our client, while placing great emphasis on doing what is best for your company. Sometimes, that involves taking a case to trial. Other times, it requires an appeal. In many instances, it means aggressive advocacy both in the courtroom and at the negotiation table.

Our approach and successes have resulted in four of our lawyers being named “Attorneys of the Year” in Minnesota. We are consistently rated by Chambers and Partners as one of the top law firms in Minnesota. We have been ranked in the top six litigation law firms in Minnesota by Benchmark Litigation. And the majority of our lawyers (70%) have been designated by their peers to the 2014 lists of Minnesota Super Lawyers and Rising Stars.
