Commercial transactions and relationships produce conflicts that can threaten or disrupt business activities. When this occurs, our business litigation practice group ensures that the interests of our clients are protected.

We represent national companies and established local businesses in a wide range of matters such as:

• Contract interpretation and enforcement

• Unlawful business practices, including antitrust, civil fraud, and unfair competition claims

• Securities matters for investors, issuers and underwriters

• Disputes among owners of closely-held businesses

• Libel and First Amendment issues

We recognize the need to handle each case efficiently and cost-effectively. Our senior litigators are experienced trial lawyers and negotiators. They are complemented by a group of talented associates who can provide the extensive support required for complex cases and assume primary responsibility on less complex matters. Many of our trial lawyers also have had experience as judicial clerks, law school faculty, and presenting continuing education programs. Several of our litigators are civil trial specialists, certified by the Minnesota State Bar Association.

We have extensive experience in many jurisdictions, which allows us to present the proper strategy alternatives and deliver solution-oriented advocacy. We provide litigation services in the areas of employment discrimination, Title VII, ADA, FMLA, USERRA, non-competition and unfair competition, wrongful discharge and wage hour matters.

We use advanced technology to increase the ease and speed of communications between attorney and client as well as the efficiency of document management. We continue to employ new technology to maximize our effectiveness and help reduce the cost of litigation.
