“Business disputes can be a slow burn or a raging inferno. Each is unique, and each demands expertise and care to extinguish quickly. With that in mind, I work swiftly to identify your issues and put water to the flames, achieving your goals in a time-sensitive and cost-effective manner.”

Time is a limited commodity, and you have little to waste. To protect that time, I have my eye on the big picture from day one, gathering critical evidence and executing strategically for optimal, cost-effective results.

As a business litigator, I understand that solving difficult disputes requires persistence and careful planning. Both inside and outside the courtroom, I will exhaustively build and develop your case, ensuring that no thread is left untangled. During this process, I will identify what is important not only to you, but also to your adversaries and the court. Once unraveled, each critical thread will be woven together to help build you a compelling case and bring about the results you need.

In my litigation practice, I help individuals and corporations resolve wide-ranging disputes during all phases of the business lifecycle, including:

  • business torts
  • construction defects
  • breaches of contract
  • intellectual property issues
  • employment disputes
  • real estate disputes

Prior to joining the firm, I served as a judicial extern to Chief Magistrate Judge Arthur J. Boylan in the United States District Court for the District of Minnesota, and as a staff attorney to Chief Judge Terrence E. Conkel in the First Judicial District of Minnesota.
