2022 Up & Coming Attorneys: Kylie E. Kaminski

Hellmuth & Johnson

Kylie Kaminski practices what she calls “happy law.”

Kaminski is a business/corporate attorney at Hellmuth & Johnson, where she’s worked since October of 2018. She represents a wide range of established and emerging businesses in industries from real estate to technology, focusing on mergers & acquisitions (M&A) and general corporate law needs.

Kaminski leads multimillion-dollar buy- and sell-side deals, reviewing contracts and conducting due diligence.

One such case involved a leveraged buyout of a technology company, to the tune of $100 million. The company, headed by a Minnesota divorce attorney, was being sold to private equity. “It was a huge dollar amount, but there were also just two attorneys from our side on it,” Kaminski said.

The deal also closed in March 2020, just as the pandemic was really taking hold. “During the last three weeks, we were pulling all-nighters in our houses to get it done,” Kaminski said.

Kaminski has also handled a lot of M&A transactions in the construction space, each more than $70 million. Many referrals come to Kaminski from Hellmuth & Johnson’s construction practice when an owner is ready to sell.

Kaminski enjoys handling the added nuance of construction transactions. “You have to figure out where to cover construction warranties and liens, so selling those types of companies is a fun challenge,” she said.

Kaminski also gives back to the profession, especially by teaching a business formation class at WomenVenture that helps women entrepreneurs get started. “I did not know how much I’d love to teach,” she said.

Kaminski is glad to practice a type of law where everyone works together rather than adversely. “It’s really rewarding to get people to the next stage they want to be in,” she said.
