Our goal is simple: deliver the right goods at the right price.

By “right goods” we mean:

Thorough analysis of the facts, our client’s objectives and applicable law; clearly communicated assessment and recommendations; documents that clearly and concisely reflect the business and legal positions of the parties; and adoption of a game plan, followed by timely execution of the plan.

By “right price” we mean:

Legal fees that reflect the value of services rendered as well as to the size and complexity of the matter at hand—in any event, even the “right price” should never be a surprise to a client.

How We Achieve Our Goal


Reputation and Relationship Building

The Twin Cities business and legal communities are highly intertwined, and reputation travels fast. Do good work for a reasonable price and two things happen: clients will want to give return business and they’ll want to tell others about us. We take pride in the substantial relationships that we have built since our beginning in 2000.



Many years of it in a wide range of financial and business matters. And not just legal experience, but experience in hiring and managing lawyers across the United States. With extensive connections throughout the Twin Cities legal community, we know where to find expertise outside our areas of concentration. Whether on a project basis or outright referral, we know how to assemble the best approach for meeting a client’s legal needs.

Low Overhead

Our offices in the historic Flour Exchange Building are reasonably priced, and our efficient use of technology keeps the lid on personnel expenses.


We manage comprehensive and customized technology to maximize productivity and security.
