Our Business Law Services

Starting and running a business is exciting. And stressful. We know—we’re business owners ourselves.
Business owners are among the most driven, creative and capable people we know.
We are grateful for the opportunity to serve these clients with passion and dedication.
We serve our business clients’ legal needs with flexible, customized services, including:

Business Advising

Business advising: Looking for legal help with a specific project? We can help. Or maybe you’d like easy access to your lawyer to answer questions that pop up day to day or week to week. For a monthly fee, we will be your company’s general counsel. From help starting a business to managing its ongoing operations, Chad and Mike offer practical, understandable guidance your business needs.

Business Litigation

Business litigation: We represent clients in business litigation, including suits to enforce rights under contracts and warranties, resolve disputes between business partners, settle lease disputes and defend clients’ rights to fairly compete. Whether you are looking to enforce your rights or have been sued, we can help.

Copyright and trademark

Copyright and trademark: Our attorneys protect our clients’ ideas, enforcing their rights under federal copyright and trademark law. We help clients put intellectual property strategies in place, make sure clients understand the boundaries of their rights, and protect their intellectual property interests in court. We also defend against misplaced accusations of infringement and champion our clients’ rights under copyright and trademark law.

Insurance coverage

Insurance coverage: Our insurance law work has two branches. First, we can help you understand the coverage you have and address any gaps that exist. And, second, we represent insured people and businesses to help recover what is owed when a loss occurs.

Wage and hour disputes

Wage and hour disputes: We represent employers and employees in wage and hour litigation. We can protect your rights in cases involving proper payment of overtime and minimum wage under the Fair Labor Standards Act and the Minnesota Wage Pay Act. We handle cases involving exempt versus nonexempt employees and misclassification of employees.

Our Nonprofit Legal Services

Nonprofits deserve expert advice from a lawyer committed full-time to their often unique legal concerns. We guide new nonprofits through the first stages of getting organized, navigate the federal tax rules governing tax exempt organizations or the nuances of laws regarding fundraising, and answer questions about employment policies, contracts, insurance needs, and the myriad other legal issues any nonprofit faces day-to-day. No matter your nonprofit legal need, we are here to help you stay mission-focused.

Our Family Law Services

Our child-centered family law practice is designed to help you protect the best interests of your children:

  • We represent parents going through a divorce, guiding them and the courts to a parenting plan in the interests of their children.
  • We work with unmarried parents to establish paternity, determine custody arrangements and set parenting schedules.
  • We can also help parents modify an existing parenting time or custody order, if a change in circumstances means a current arrangement no longer serves your children’s’ best interests.
  • We represent clients in third-party custody and visitation cases. These are sometimes referred to as grandparents’ rights cases, but they can apply to any adult who is not a parent but has a significant relationship with the child.
