Zach Robins Named 2015 Up & Coming Attorney by Minnesota Lawyer
MINNEAPOLIS – June 29, 2015 – Winthrop & Weinstine, P.A., ( is proud to announce that attorney Zach Robins has been named a 2015 Up & Coming Attorney by Minnesota Lawyer. The award highlights lawyers in their first 10 years of practice who have already distinguished themselves by their achievements.  

Nominees for the Up & Coming Attorney award are judged on their professional accomplishments, leadership, service to the community and to the profession. Winners are chosen by a panel of prior award winners.  

“This recognition is a testament to Zach’s passion for the profession,” said Jeff Koerselman, attorney at Winthrop & Weinstine and award nominator. “In addition to his extensive knowledge and skill, Zach volunteered his personal time to further the passage of a law that benefits not only our clients but many small businesses in Minnesota. He is a perfect recipient of this award.”  

As an associate in the Corporate & Transactions practice group at Winthrop & Weinstine, Zach represents clients in business and finance, mergers and acquisitions, strategic partnerships, equity raises and debt financings. A major achievement of his was the recent passing of the MNvest legislation, which will enable Minnesota businesses to legally promote investment opportunities online to all Minnesota residents. The new law was drafted by Zach and his colleague Ryan Schildkraut. Zach also serves as a moderator and panelist on many occasions, sharing insight and thought leadership, particularly on crowdfunding. 

Zach is dedicated to his community; he serves on Winthrop & Weinstine’s Pro Bono committee, and has previously worked with LEGALCorps, which provides small businesses and nonprofit organizations with free legal advice. He is also on the Association for Corporate Growth’s Young Member Subcommittee. In addition, he serves on the Young Professional Advisory Board of the PACER Center, a parent training and information program for families of children and youth with disabilities, to expand opportunities and enhance the quality of life.
