Meet with trusted business attorneys

Bring your legal questions to the experts

Work with our trusted business attorneys to get a clear grasp of the legal language and terms used in contracts and documents and be able to speak about it with ease and confidence. Our legal advisors can provide support and guidance for your business-related legal questions.

These advisors can support you in:

  • Identifying the right legal entity for your business 
  • Reviewing contracts and leases
  • Succession planning, employment law, and more 

Legal advisors cannot offer litigation support.

Elevate Hennepin advisors offer strategic guidance for your business to get to the next step. While they may support some implementation activities, business owners are responsible for ongoing maintenance and day-to-day operations. Businesses should be prepared to engage their own resources for complex projects that are anticipated to take more than 25 hours.

Contact an advisor below to help you identify and plan for your next critical step.
