I handle a wide variety of disputes, including shareholder or limited partner disputes, banking and securities law litigation, and general commercial contract matters. I have extensive experience at all levels of the litigation process, and represent a wide variety of clients, from Fortune 500 companies to small businesses and individuals.
Every client, every business, every case is different, and the same approach is not right for every matter. I strive to find the best approach for the unique issues of each case so that I can provide the greatest value to my clients. Litigation may be adversarial, but it does not have to be a zero-sum game; there is usually a business solution and I work to be creative and achieve the best outcomes for my clients. For me, the point is not just to “win,” but to find the best, most efficient solution. I am committed to my clients and their businesses, and am invested in solving problems and getting them back to their business as efficiently as I can.
In my practice, I handle a wide variety of disputes, including shareholder or limited partner disputes, construction litigation, real estate litigation, banking and securities law litigation, and general commercial contract matters. I also address and resolve the unique issues that can arise in connection with low-income housing tax credit developments. I have extensive experience at all levels of the litigation process, and represent a wide variety of clients, from Fortune 500 companies to small businesses and individuals. My experience spans a variety of industries, including banking, real estate, construction, and energy, among others.
In addition to my litigation practice, I dedicate time to assisting individuals who need, but cannot afford, legal representation. I have handled a number of pro bono matters over the past several years. Stemming from my work with the Government Benefits Division of the Legal Aid Society of Minneapolis while in law school, I have successfully represented individuals who were denied Medical Assistance and Social Security Disability benefits. In addition, I assisted an individual in receiving a full pardon for a non-violent crime committed in his youth.
Advancing and supporting women in the legal profession is very important to me, and I work within the firm to mentor junior lawyers and coordinate our women’s group. I also serve on the firm’s Recruiting and Associate Development Committees. Outside the firm, I am active in the Minnesota Mother Attorneys Association and Minnesota Women Lawyers.
When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two kids, baking and decorating cakes, and getting outdoors.
