Steven T. Hetland (Steve) has extensive corporate, business and litigation experience derived from his years of private practice in large and small law firms and from his corporate general counsel experience. Steve also has extensive experience guiding clients in assessing and implementing personal estate planning and business succession objectives. Steve advises both corporate and individual clients on business and professional matters, and represents them in civil trial and appellate litigation in state and federal courts. Steve has been trained as a Minnesota certified ADR neutral and incorporates ADR services and strategies in litigation, business, estate and personal representations of his clients.
