“The breadth of my experience broadens the value I bring to my clients. It spares the people I represent from having to seek separate counsel when various issues arise, and it gives me a more holistic view of their business.”

Brian Niemczyk practices primarily with the firm's litigation group and focuses on employment law, commercial litigation, landlord-tenant litigation and real estate litigation.

Drawing on experience in all aspects of litigation, including substantial courtroom and appellate work, he represents a wide range of businesses and individuals involved in diverse real estate and commercial disputes. They include disagreements over real estate and asset purchase agreements, leases, mortgages, mechanic's liens, and condominium disclosure statements among other issues.

In addition, Brian represents numerous individuals and small businesses in connection with employment disputes, including illegal retaliation and discrimination claims and disagreements concerning employment contracts and non-compete agreements.

“Every case is unique, and I strive to find the key issues that can make each one great,” says Brian. “I also work to provide pragmatic solutions to my clients, whether they involve litigation, negotiation or other forms of alternative dispute resolution.”


Brian is a 2006 summa cum laude graduate of Hamline University School of Law. He earned his B.A. from Hamline University College of Liberal Arts, summa cum laude, with Distinction in History and Political Science.
