Leo has been an effective commercial litigator who has tried many cases to verdict or judgment. Even so, he recognized early in his career that the default of suing as a mechanism for resolving differences lacked efficiency, while generating uncertainty, upheaval, and strain. What’s more, in addition to being time-consuming and costly, he realized that suing does not lend itself to the far more difficult tasks of mending differences and moving on. Leo had clients within the litigation process contend that they would rather have a root canal.

With that in mind, more than thirty years ago, Leo sought training and became deeply committed to facilitating satisfying outcomes through alternative dispute resolution. Since then, he has handled well over 1,000 cases as a neutral, using varied ADR procedures. His practice is geared toward providing fast, successful, and affordable solutions for parties in conflict.

Leo has taught ADR as an adjunct and visiting professor; is a frequent lecturer on the subject; and serves on several administered ADR panels, such as AAA, ICDR, and FINRA. For the past thirteen years, he has been recognized by his peers as one of the top practitioners of ADR in Minnesota, as well as being listed as one of the top ADR practitioners in the national publication The Best Lawyers in America.

A summary of Leo’s qualifications and his many areas of experience are listed here.

Leo is willing to travel statewide, nationally, or internationally.
