Maslon Law Firm Elects Governance Committee

May 9, 2006

The law firm of Maslon Edelman Borman & Brand announces the re-election of Cooper Ashley, David Herr and Terri Krivosha to the firm's Governance Committee. Krivosha also was re-elected Chair of the Governance Committee, a position similar to managing partner that she has held since 2003.

Cooper Ashley is a partner in Maslon's Litigation Group. His practice focuses on products liability matters on behalf of both plaintiffs and defendants, and policyholder insurance coverage cases. For more than 20 years, Cooper also has litigated significant fire and explosion cases and has handled historic preservation cases. Cooper's courtroom experience is extensive, including numerous jury and bench trials in state and federal courts; appellate arguments before the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals, Minnesota Court of Appeals and Minnesota Supreme Court; binding arbitrations; and more than 100 successful mediations. Cooper has appeared in court on behalf of clients in multiple jurisdictions across the country. He earned his law degree from Northwestern University School of Law.

David Herr 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. Herr, who is the immediate past president of the American Academy of Appellate Lawyers, regularly argues cases in the Minnesota appellate courts and the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals. He also annotates the Federal Judicial Center's Manual for Complex Litigation, published and distributed nationally by West Group. Herr earned his law degree from William Mitchell College of Law.

Terri Krivosha assists businesses of all sizes to realize their goals, including initial formation, capitalization, growth through merger or acquisition, governance, and general business matters. Krivosha serves as a valued business advisor to her clients to structure transactions to be win-win for all parties. She also represents companies as they negotiate joint ventures, distribution agreements, licensing transactions and other complex relationships. She has a particular knowledge of the Israeli culture and language and, as a result, can serve as a valuable bridge to Israeli companies and their investors. Krivosha earned her law degree from Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law.

The Maslon Law Firm is a 76-attorney commercial law firm based in Minneapolis, with particular experience in the areas of business and securities matters, high-stakes litigation, and financial services law.
