At Maslon, we build long-standing relationships with our clients.
Our clients appreciate our dedication to law, and our commitment to helping them solve problems. Many are entrepreneurs or families operating closely held companies. We provide these clients with both general legal representation and counsel on specific legal issues.
We also represent publicly traded corporations. As counsel to many large corporate clients, we are regularly involved in complex business transactions and litigation throughout the United States and abroad. Our clients include manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, utilities, financial institutions, contractors, construction companies, insurance companies, brokerage firms and service companies. We also represent professionals, individuals and non-profit organizations, foundations and charitable trusts.
In addition to providing specific and highly technical legal services, our relationship with many clients is such that we participate in far-reaching decisions for companies, ranging from start-ups to multinationals.
Creative vision is realized in a firm that values individual diversity, professional excellence and integrity, and dedicated client service.
