“I have extensive experience working with owners and decision makers in businesses of all sizes to understand their legal needs. I devise strategies that save money in the long run. My wide range of experience allows me to spot issues and provide practical legal advice.”

Ed Beckmann represents businesses throughout the United States in various matters.  He has clients from Minnesota, where he maintains an office, as well as immigrant entrepreneurs from countries such as Thailand, China, Switzerland and Mexico.  His business clientele includes software developers, fitness companies, builders, advertising/marketing firms, photographers and other companies that are the engine of America’s economy.

As an attorney with a dual focus in litigation and transaction-related matters, Ed brings uncommon agility and breadth of experience to his cases. He has litigated disputes in the aviation, construction, energy and reinsurance sectors among many others. He also enforces non-compete agreements, obtains damages due to breach of contract, holds parties accountable for bad faith, and finds remedies for incomplete or negligent work.

Cultivating close client relationships is extremely important. “You do that by upholding your fiduciary responsibility, by being accessible and responsive, and doing everything possible to justify their trust,” he explains. “It’s important because the greater the connection between attorney and client, the greater the likelihood of achieving a desirable result.”

Ed is chair of the Richfield Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors and a member of the BNI Full Circle Chapter.


Ed obtained his bachelor’s degree from the University of Minnesota in 1996, and his J.D. from the University of Wisconsin in 1999.


  • Licensed in Minnesota and Wisconsin since 1999.
  • Member of the Amdahl Inns of Court and State Bars of Minnesota and Wisconsin.
  • For eight consecutive years (2005-2012), Ed has been named to the Minnesota Rising Stars list; only 2.5 percent of young attorneys are chosen each year.
