Briggs and Morgan

Practice/Organization Description

Briggs and Morgan is a trusted name in business law and litigation services with a rich history of more than 125 years in practice. Headquartered in Minnesota, it is one of state’s largest and oldest law firms.

With offices in Minneapolis and St. Paul, Briggs and Morgan has more than 180 attorneys committed to providing superior client service and sound legal counsel to clients nationwide. The firm offers a broad range of legal services and diversified backgrounds to Fortune 500 corporations, business start-ups, commercial enterprises, nonprofit and charitable institutions, utilities, public bodies, and individuals. Slightly more than half of Briggs' attorneys concentrate their practices in various aspects of litigation and other forms of dispute resolution, while the remainder focus on commercial and transactional law.

Recently, Briggs assembled a multi-disciplinary Market Crisis Response Team to serve the demands of financial institutions, brokerage firms, corporate directors and officers, public accounting firms, municipalities, public institutions, title companies, publicly traded companies, and other businesses feeling the effects of the turbulent capital markets. Attorneys from multiple practice areas come together to analyze, advise and help clients establish action plans and respond effectively to complex issues and business concerns.

Briggs has been honored as a “Go-To Law Firm®” in corporate transactions, corporate governance, labor and employment, and litigation by the publishers of Corporate Counsel, who survey the general counsel of Fortune 500 companies. The firm has also been highlighted in the Chambers USA guide. Several attorneys are fellows of esteemed professional trade associations, and many have been listed in the Best Lawyers in America and Minnesota Super Lawyers.

Beyond daily practice, the firm is proud to support its attorneys in their service to the community and the legal profession. Many distinguished leaders of the bar and state judiciary have emerged from Briggs. The firm also maintains a strong commitment to pro bono work.
