Areas of Practice

Litigation

Hoff Barry offers an uncommon depth of experience in handling complex litigation and appeals. Hoff Barry lawyers routinely represent Minnesota municipal government entities and personnel as defense counsel assigned by the League of Minnesota Cities Insurance Trust or retained directly by cities, as well as private interests and individuals, in an array of litigation contexts. Hoff Barry handles land use and zoning claims, construction disputes, environmental cases, and constitutional claims. We also work on contract disputes, covenants not to compete, business cases, and all manner of claims involving challenges to municipal governance and authority.

In addition to handling alternative dispute resolution and trial work, we are experienced appellate counsel. Hoff Barry lawyers have briefed and argued more than fifty cases before the Minnesota Court of Appeals, Minnesota Supreme Court and the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals in approximately the last ten years.

We value efficiency. Hoff Barry avoids overstaffing and duplication through seamless coordination of efforts and communication. Our support staff is comprised of experienced professionals dedicated to assisting Hoff Barry’s attorneys to provide case management and from the outset of a case through its final resolution.
