Lindquist & Vennum’s 200 attorneys provide a full array of corporate finance, transactional and litigation services for clients from offices in Minnesota, Colorado, and South Dakota. We have served corporate, governmental and individual clients across the nation and around the world for nearly 40 years (although our roots are even older, dating back to 1946).

Our corporate finance attorneys help emerging businesses position themselves for success and help established companies maintain a competitive edge. Clients in a variety of industries rely on Lindquist & Vennum for everything from advice on tax issues to in-depth counsel concerning raising capital, negotiating strategic alliances, and merging with or acquiring other organizations.

Our litigation practice covers all aspects of commercial and corporate trial and appellate advocacy, including antitrust recovery and defense; employment; insurance recovery; intellectual property; product liability; real estate; securities; and white-collar crime.

Like many of its clients, Lindquist & Vennum is a midsize organization. We offer the efficiency and personal attention typical of small firms, along with the resources, in-depth experience and sizable practice groups most often found at large firms. Our moderate size, Midwest location and conscientious assignment of attorneys and support specialists allow us to provide services at a value that fits clients’ means.
