The calm with which Drew Zamansky learned to approach high-pressure situations while playing competitive tennis has carried over to his business law practice.
Local ties the Twin Cities native forged growing up here and attending the Blake School in Minneapolis, where he was State Boys’ Class A tennis singles champion in 1999, have helped him build a significant client base.
“That competitive aspect of playing a lot of tennis around the country at different levels has paid off in my professional career,” Zamansky said. “It has helped prepare me, whether it’s time management, a negotiation or a discussion, to take a step back and look at the big picture.”
Zamansky has focused on business transactions and serving as general counsel to a business clients since he joined Zamansky Professional Association, his father’s Minneapolis firm, in 2006 after graduating from the University of Denver College of Law.
Projects the younger Zamansky has handled include legal work on a $55 million apartment and townhouse development that recently began construction in Golden Valley.
Zamansky also helped former Blake classmate Eric Dayton and his brother Andrew from the start with legal work on The Bachelor Farmer restaurant and Askov Finlayson retail store they developed in an old warehouse they bought and renovated in Minneapolis’ North Loop neighborhood.
