Clayton Halunen is the founder of Halunen Law, representing employees, executives in severance negotiations, whistleblowers in individual and qui tam/False Claims Act cases, and other courageous clients pursuing justice. Since its founding in 1998, and under Clayton’s leadership, Halunen Law has achieved a national reputation as a fearless, tenacious, and successful plaintiffs’ law firm, bringing a laser focus on delivering results for its clients and creating meaningful social change.

A 100% contingency firm, Halunen Law is anything but risk averse. The firm’s formula of careful selection, meticulous case development, and dogged representation yields winning results. Halunen has successfully tried to verdict employee discrimination, harassment, and whistleblower cases and has effectively negotiated c-suite executive severance packages against some of the nation’s largest corporations. He has litigated and won countless high-profile cases that have significantly altered corporate practices and garnered millions of dollars in awards and settlements for his clients. Halunen focuses on resolving cases in ways that give clients peace of mind and a sense that justice was served. “We’re fighters. People tell us it’s why they came to us. That motivates us to continue to fight, and we continue to succeed.” The firm has a record of successfully resolving between 90 and 95 percent of its cases and welcomes referrals, or inquiries about co-counsel opportunities.

Widely respected for his success, Halunen was featured in the CBS television series “Whistleblower” for this landmark representation of whistleblower Heidi Weber in the case against Globe University. He is the recipient of numerous prestigious honors and awards acknowledging his professional acumen and advocacy. In 2018, as a recipient of the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal’s Business of Pride Award, Halunen was recognized for his leadership within the LGBT and business communities. He was named one of the Attorneys of the Year by Minnesota Lawyer in 2014 and 2017 and has been selected to the Minnesota Super Lawyers list consistently
since 2003.
