Attorneys Who Approach Business Law From a Proactive and Business Owner Standpoint

Taking a proactive, preventive approach to running your business with the support of a trusted business law attorney, accountant, business banker, financial planner and commercial insurance agent is essential to maintain the success of your business.

St. Paul Business Lawyers Focused On Finding Solutions For Business Owners

Over the course of their legal careers, our attorneys have litigated more than a hundred cases. It is this level of experience in the courtroom that gives us the insight that is necessary when handling your case. As litigators, we have greater insight into transactional drafting errors. In other words, litigation provides our attorneys a better understanding and clarity as to best practices in drafting contracts. As appellate attorneys, we have greater insight into the best way to present a case at trial that properly preserves the record for an appeal. Therefore, appealing a case provides our attorneys with best practices in presenting a case where the record is preserved for an appeal.

As business owners ourselves, we understand first-hand the challenges and rewards of being business owners.
