Christopher M. Hussey

Your business goals are the objective; every decision should serve those goals.

My Approach

Working with clients on their commercial relationships, acquisitions or divestitures and capital raising needs, I often find that the word “lawyer” is too restrictive. Together, clients and I achieve the best outcomes when I can serve as an extension of their business, learn everything I can about its inner workings and future goals, to make sure every decision that is made serves those needs. Immersing myself in the operations of the company, from advising C-suite executives and business owners, to working directly with managers and other staff, allows me to have a full understanding of the true culture of your business. Equipped with this knowledge, I work with my clients to cut to the core of what is essential to them in each transaction or matter, and advise on a range of issues, from complex deal management and capital raising activities, to day-to-day operational requests and customer and vendor relationships.

I worked in the business world as a finance consultant to Fortune 500 companies before I even thought of becoming a lawyer, and now my representation of clients follows the same path: identify the business needs first, and then apply the law to make sure we achieve those needs.

When I’m not at work, I enjoy playing hockey and was a former NCAA Division I ice hockey player, make use of the fantastic Twin Cities bike trail system, and am an avid Minnesota sports fan. I also regularly do pro bono work through LegalCORPS, a non-profit that matches business attorneys with low-income entrepreneurs and small non-profits in Minnesota.
