I have practiced law in the metropolitan Twin Cities of Minneapolis and Saint Paul, Minnesota, for the past 27 years.  Business and commercial litigation has been my focus, including:

» trade secrets and unfair competition;
» patent, copyright, and trademark infringement;
» software development, licensing, and acquisition;
» antitrust and trade regulation;
» securities and shareholders’ rights;
» fidelity and directors’ and officers’ liability and insurance;
» employment law;
» banking and bank regulation;
» commercial paper and creditors’ rights and remedies. 

I have tried cases before state and federal courts and arbitration panels in many jurisdictions and handled appeals in numerous state and federal appellate courts.  I have also served as an adjunct professor at the William Mitchell College of Law in St. Paul, Minnesota, where I taught a class on Negotiable Instruments that covered Articles 3 and 4 of the UCC, wire transfers, and related Federal Reserve operating letters.

I received my B.A. degree summa cum laude in 1973 from Augustana College, Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and my J.D. degree cum laude in 1976 from Harvard Law School, Cambridge, Massachusetts, where I was an Editor and Senior Editor of the Harvard Law Review.  From 1976 to 1977, I was a law clerk to Judge Myron H. Bright of the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit. 

In the future, I plan to add to this web site notes and articles on legal subjects of interest to me, so check back from time to time.
