Representing an expansive and diverse client base throughout the States of Minnesota and Wisconsin, Kemper Law is experienced in a wide variety of practice areas. We offer specialized and practical advice based upon 20 years of experience as in-house counsel to multiple national construction companies, as well as, countless individual and local contractors. Kemper Law can help navigate your business through the minefields associated with Contract Law, Mechanic Liens, Construction Defects, Payment Disputes and Appeals. We guide you through to the other side by capitalizing on the law and the facts of your individual matter and by providing you with options in order to maximize your opportunities.

Kemper Law construction clients include local and national Property Owners and Developers, General Contractors, Sub-Contractors, Material Suppliers and Design and Engineering Professionals. We provide transactional and litigation services to clients across the industry spectrum, including commercial, industrial and residential matters, and are equally adept at all. While based in Minnesota, we have handled matters located in Cleveland, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami and Seattle, among others.

We understand the expense associated with hiring an attorney and are sympathetic to the concerns of our clients, but balance that with a cost-benefit analysis. It is always less expensive to talk with an attorney before you have a problem, rather than after a problem has developed. For example, a Pre-Lien Mechanic Lien notice for less than $100.00 can literally save your business thousands of dollars later on when a dispute arises. Why wouldn’t you take these inexpensive steps now in order to preserve and protect your rights later? For that reason, we advise our clients to contact us whenever they are starting a new project, have a new business partner or begin a new development. Every project has risk, but with proper planning and execution prior to starting the project, potential problems can be identified, addressed and eliminated.

The following is only a sampling of services we offer our transactional clients:

  • Business Start Ups

It comes as no surprise that the complexity of the construction industry frequently leads to conflicts between Owners, Developers, Contractors, Sub-Contractors and other entities involved in the project. However, with money, materials, resources and scheduling at stake, your business needs a skilled and experienced legal expert to represent your interests. At Kemper Law, we do that every day.
