Firm Details

The law exists to be a force for good—a force that protects the promise of liberty and justice for all. This is why Ciresi Conlin LLP exists. We practice law not only to protect what’s best for our clients today, but what’s best for all of us for the future.  The firm’s work has made that vision a reality, allowing its lawyers to focus on pursuing their passions in the practice, continue their community engagements, and use the law as a force for good to protect the future for all.  

In 2015, after 44 years at his former firm, attorney Michael V. Ciresi, along with veteran litigators Jan Conlin and Katie Crosby Lehmann, formed their own firm, Ciresi Conlin LLP.  What sets Ciresi Conlin apart is the extraordinary talent and experience of the firm’s trial specialists and their collective dedication to the mission that inspired the firm’s creation.

Ciresi Conlin is a Minnesota law firm with a world-class reputation. Since opening its doors in 2015 with 6 attorneys, the firm has grown to 17 attorneys and represents clients from all dimensions of society and from around the world.  Ciresi Conlin takes on trial and appellate representation of all shapes and sizes, using small, agile teams comprised of highly talented and creative lawyers.   

Ciresi Conlin specializes in high-profile, bet-the-company, and procedurally difficult cases that affect business success and vitality of both international corporations and small businesses. We also have deep local roots and, in addition to our representation of Minnesota businesses, we seek justice for those whose lives are changed because of medical mistakes, product defects, and the negligence of other people or entities.  Ciresi Conlin’s efforts to protect the future also extend to science-based and environmental litigation in ensure responsible protection of our natural resources for generations to come.
