Seeking to practice franchise law, complex and appellate litigation, Adam joined our firm as an Associate after several years of practicing business litigation at a national firm in Minnesota.
Adam’s experience includes financial services litigation representing large financial institutions in a variety of disputes regarding real estate and title issues, breach of contract, and compliance with numerous statutes including the Fair Credit Reporting Act, Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act, and Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. His appellate experience includes the successful defense of an appeal to the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals, which affirmed a grant of summary judgment in his client’s favor. Prior to entering private practice, Adam served as a law clerk for Judge Klein and Judge Sipkins in Minneapolis where he assisted the judges with criminal and civil cases including insurance, employment, and contracts.
Originally from Minneapolis, Minnesota, Adam obtained his undergraduate degree, with distinction, from the University of Iowa and is a member of Phi Beta Kappa.

Lareau Award for Best Legal Writing. He also served as a student editor on the American Bar Association Journal of Labor and Employment law, as a student legal writing instructor, and as a judicial extern for Judge David Minge (ret.) at the Minnesota Court of Appeal.
