Today, our attorneys routinely collaborate across state lines in order to deliver exceptional legal services to our clients. Located in the heart of downtown Minneapolis at the AT&T Center, DeWitt’s team of 20 plus Minneapolis attorneys is broadly recognized for its experience in the corporate, environmental, government relations, labor and employment, litigation and intellectual property practices.
“Our expansion into the Twin Cities region is strategic and allows us to offer enhanced legal services to new and existing clients in both regions, while maintaining the high quality of legal services and cost-effective rates we currently offer. We are extremely excited about our growth and the opportunities this combination presents to both our attorneys and our clients,” President & Managing Partner Bradley C. Fulton.
As the largest city in the state of Minnesota, Minneapolis provides a vibrant and growing metropolitan area for businesses and law firms alike. It is the second largest economic center in the Midwest – with Chicago being the largest. Home to the Mayo Clinic, its economy is based in commerce, finance, rail and trucking services, health care and industry. It also has smaller components of publishing, milling, food processing, graphic arts, insurance, education, high technology and more.
The city of Minneapolis has an estimated 400,070 residents, when combined with Minneapolis-St. Paul (Twin Cities) it is closer to 3.28 million. It lies on both banks of the Mississippi River and its cultural organizations draw creative people and audiences to the city for theater, visual arts, writing and music. The diverse population of Minneapolis also continues to manage a long history of charitable support through progressive public social programs and volunteering.
Minneapolis is home to one of the five largest modern art museums in the U.S., The Walker Art Center, which is located near the downtown area and the Minneapolis park system has been called the best-designed, best-financed, and best-maintained in America. The Minnesota Twins baseball team, The Minnesota Vikings football team, the Minnesota Wild hockey team and the Minnesota Timberwolves basketball team are among the state’s well-established sports teams.
When it comes to the government, Minneapolis is a stronghold for the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party (DFL), an affiliate of the Democratic Party. Betsy Hodges (DFL) is the current mayor of Minneapolis, and Mark Dayton (DFL) is the Governor of Minnesota. The Republican Party is also active in Minneapolis and recently moved its state headquarters from Saint Paul to the Seward neighborhood of Minneapolis.
