Maslon is pleased to announce that Terri Krivosha, a partner in Maslon's Corporate & Securities Group, has been chosen to receive the 2021 Minnesota Icon Award from Finance & Commerce newspaper. The award recognizes her years of achievement and keen ability to lead, succeed, and inspire others. Among her notable accomplishments, Terri was elected chair of the firm in 2003, making her the first woman to lead a top 25 law firm in the Twin Cities. She has consistently worked to advance the firm and support other attorneys, particularly women. She was an adjunct professor at William Mitchell College of Law and mentored students at the University of St. Thomas School of Law. Additionally, Terri is a founding member of the Minnesota Chapter of the Women Presidents' Organization (WPO), a group committed to helping women leaders develop their businesses, and a founding member of Global Rights for Women, a nonprofit whose goal is to end violence against women and girls.
Terri was one of only 21 honorees—and just three women—from the business and legal communities selected for the honor.
In her law practice, Terri is passionate about helping businesses grow, succeed, and scale. As a strategic business attorney, she helps a vibrant network of entrepreneurial and dynamic businesses see the "forest through the trees." Terri works directly with the business people who lead organizations, providing general counsel advice that is not only prompt and pragmatic, but also customized to fit the stage of the client's business. She is exceptionally skilled at negotiating and drafting multiple kinds of contracts, strategic partnerships, and joint ventures; developing and implementing exit strategies; advising on selling or buying companies and raising capital to recapitalize businesses; and coaching clients on complex governance matters. Terri is also a qualified Rule 114 mediator, bringing her transactional experience, creativity, and high energy to the mediation table.
Terri will be profiled in the Minnesota ICONS celebration publication in both Finance & Commerce and Minnesota Lawyer and recognized with other honorees at an evening event Dec. 9, 2021, at the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis.
