My Approach to Handling Your Issues
I bring the thoughtfulness and preparation that distinguished my judicial career to the resolution of your dispute. I’ll not only listen to both sides carefully, but also delve into each party’s arguments, both factual and legal, in order to encourage both parties to confront and respond to their opponent’s positions. I believe that a commercially reasonable outcome should be reached in most cases, and I have the background and experience to help make that happen.
I am a qualified neutral under Rule 114 Minn. Gen. R. of P.
When parties want to resolve their dispute by arbitration or trial, I bring my extensive judicial experience to serve as arbitrator or private judge. My last twelve years on the bench as a civil trial judge established my reputation for taking thoughtful but decisive action in presiding over trials and making difficult decisions.
Special Litigation Committee
My judicial experience with stockholder actions involving Special Litigation Committees, paired with my investigative and advisory responsibilities as a lawyer for over 28 years, provide the background for my work as a Special Litigation Committee.
