The law firm of Gislason & Hunter has a long history of building lasting relationships with the clients and communities we serve. For more than 80 years, our mission has been to deliver the very best in service and results. We enjoy a reputation as one of the premier civil litigation and corporate transaction firms in the upper midwest. Our firm has more than 40 attorneys and 60-plus support staff, making us one of the largest law firms in Minnesota. Our accomplished attorneys bring substantial trial experience and industry-specific knowledge to our primary areas of practice.
Gislason & Hunter’s core clients are business owners, corporate executives, professionals, farmers and agribusinesses, banks and insurance companies with diverse and intertwined legal matters, from contract negotiations and business financing to employment issues, regulatory compliance and insurance defense. Gislason & Hunter assembles cross-discipline teams to provide comprehensive counsel and appropriate firepower. Our formidable courtroom abilities are tempered by a healthy measure of common sense; we first explore out-of-court resolutions and we are sensitive to helping clients contain costs and preserve key relationships.
Our talent and resources compare favorably with major Twin Cities firms, yet Gislason & Hunter is deeply rooted in traditional notions of hard work, fairness, integrity and personal attention. Most of our lawyers were born and raised in the midwest, and with offices in New Ulm, Minneapolis, Mankato and Des Moines, we are at home in both rural and metropolitan settings. We are also deeply committed to the communities where we live and work. We value relationships with people and cornerstone employers, and we are proud that many individuals, families and corporate clients have been with our firm for decades.
