Christopher M. Hussey

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

My Approach

In my practice, 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. 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 started my career as a finance consultant to publicly traded Fortune 500 companies before I became a lawyer, which grounds my practice in the day-to-day realities of every client I represent – theory and academics are nice, but it’s the common sense, practical solutions that typically prevail.

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.
