John J. Steffenhagen is a partner with the firm, where he has a broad-based litigation and counseling practice honed over 20 years of experience helping clients succeed in both the courtroom and boardroom. John's practice is concentrated in the following areas:

  • Employment law and litigation
  • Commercial litigation
  • Municipal law

John represents corporations, other business entities and individuals in litigation ranging from employment disputes to complex multi-party litigation involving real property, commercial and environmental matters. In addition to being a seasoned litigator, clients regard him as a trusted counselor on a wide variety of day-to-day employment matters affecting their business operations.

He also has extensive experience in the municipal law arena-from challenges on behalf of entities or homeowners facing eminent domain or addressing adverse zoning determinations, to assisting municipalities with internal matters including annexation, detachment and incorporation. For example, he served as lead trial counsel for the City of Columbus incorporation-one of the few, if not only Minnesota cases in which a township simultaneously won legal status as a city, while defeating annexation of an entire commercial district to a far larger, neighboring city.

Licensed to practice law in the state and federal courts of Minnesota, John is a member of the American and Minnesota State Bar Associations. He is dedicated to a wide variety of civic and charitable causes, including serving on the Board of Directors of the St. Louis Park Emergency Program (STEP), a community based not-for-profit agency providing crisis services to residents in need.

John obtained his J.D. from Georgetown University Law Center in Washington, DC and his B.A. from St. John's University in Collegeville, Minnesota.
