For over 30 years, I have partnered with businesses and individuals as a legal counselor, advisor and advocate. Through my primary practices in business
and commercial real estate law
, I handle corporate matters and real estate and leasing transactions, as well as assist with formation, operation, document drafting and review, problem-solving and dispute resolution for companies located in the Twin Cities area and elsewhere. I also provide legal services to individuals and families
in the areas of personal planning, real estate, contracts, and other matters.
My clients are individuals and businesses of all sizes that operate locally and nationally, from large wholesale distributors with annual sales in excess of $1 billion, to sole proprietors, investors and homeowners. They include commercial property managers and brokers, shopping center owners, national manufacturers and distributors, real estate investors, and a wide variety of small and mid-sized businesses. I also advise and represent individual clients on a range of business-related matters, as well as on personal and family matters such as drafting wills, trusts, powers of attorney, health care directives and probate.
Although my work is primarily transactional, I am also an experienced litigator and work regularly with clients in pursuing court-based remedies – including tenant evictions, resolution of business, commercial and landlord-tenant disputes, collection of debts and enforcement of liens – as well as pursuing mediation and arbitration.
My practice is characterized by long-term relationships with my clients, including the many businesses for whom I serve as outside general counsel, addressing their legal needs and, when appropriate, collaborating with other legal or financial specialists. I am accustomed to working alongside owners, managers and in-house counsel on all legal matters requiring attention. My resulting deep familiarity with an organization and its specific business concerns allows me to anticipate a client’s needs and to respond quickly and efficiently if and when matters arise, providing quality legal services in a cost-effective manner.
Many clients are referred to me by others for whom I have done legal work, or by other attorneys who are familiar with my practice. I am always interested in helping new clients to prosper and grow.
