My passion for real estate, client service and entrepreneurial spirit drew me to Vantage Law Group. Whether developing a greenfield or brownfield, farmland or urban redevelopment, I’m enthused to provide client-centered value and creativity. As a partner in a downtown Minneapolis law firm, I negotiated and closed hundreds of acquisitions, dispositions and leases. As in-house counsel at Target, I negotiated and managed over $5 Billion in real estate developments, including economic incentive packages. My experience includes a development of railroad land, a 300-acre office campus, mixed-use projects, stores from 13,000 to 165,000 square feet, historically-sensitive redevelopment, and distribution centers and fulfillment facilities throughout the U.S. and Canada.
I believe that a lawyer’s primary goal is to facilitate problem-solving and draft succinct, understandable agreements, all in direct collaboration with the client. It shouldn’t be about me; it’s about facilitating client goals without churning billable time, and without making documents so complex that clients need to hire additional lawyers to administer the deal after it is closed. A client once called me a transformative negotiator because of my ability to cut through complications, formulate agreements that enhance the client’s position, and protect its interests with efficiency and collegiality.
