David Herr Selected as a 2017 "Attorney of the Year" by Minnesota Lawyer

December 4, 2017

Maslon is pleased to announce that David Herr, an appellate attorney in Maslon's Litigation Group, has been selected as a 2017 "Attorney of the Year" by Minnesota Lawyer. The 2017 honorees were chosen based on their leadership in the profession, involvement in major cases or other newsworthy events, excellence in corporate or transactional services, and public service. David was selected for his work as appellate counsel on the Minnesota State Legislature legal team, representing the Minnesota State Legislature in the lawsuit against Governor Mark Dayton regarding the dispute over his line-item veto of the Legislature's appropriation for 2018 and 2019. This year, David will be inducted into the "Circle of Excellence," an award that honors those who have made the Attorney of the Year list before. 

David is a highly regarded appellate lawyer and complex case litigator. He is frequently sought out to provide practical and sophisticated advice on how to resolve difficult, multi-party disputes in trial courts and arbitral forums as well as in the appellate courts. David is past president of the American Academy of Appellate Lawyers, past president of the Academy of Court Appointed Masters, and regularly argues cases in the Minnesota appellate courts and the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals. He annotates the Federal Judicial Center's Manual for Complex Litigation, published and distributed nationally by Thomson West.
