Inside this section, you’ll read accounts of how this work can have a broad impact on many people, such as the efforts Minnesota Attorney General’s Office to hold opioid companies accountable or the striking of Minnesota’s abortion restrictions as a result of Dr. Jane Doe et al v. State of Minnesota.
It can also have a deep impact on individuals, like you’ll find in the work Brandon Thompson and Rachel Barrett did on behalf of Anuj Thapa that resulted in a $111 million medical malpractice verdict against Thapa’s provider, St. Cloud Orthopedic Associates.
This section also revisits plenty of cases that generated memorable stories over the past year in the pages of Minnesota Lawyer, such as the Koch Trucking dispute.
All of the honorees found on these pages were feted at a Feb. 15 networking and awards event held at the Hyatt Regency, Minneapolis in downtown Minneapolis.
Congratulations to all of our 2022 Attorneys of the Year.
