Reviewed on July 28, 2017

The firm can improve by increasing its hiring standards and improving diversity among the staff. Adding an HR department would also improve the professionalism inside the offices.

You will develop a reputation for yourself as a no-nonsense attorney if you work here, because that is required. You will also learn from some of the best minds in the local area.

The firm is growing and developing an identity for itself, which may not yet be established. Several key staff have left prominent roles. Salary and benefits packages are not among the best.

Current Employee


Just as each client is unique, each law firm is unique. What sets Maslon apart has much to do with the quality of our relationships, both with our clients and with each other. We are large enough to handle the most challenging and sophisticated legal matters, yet small enough to recognize and appreciate the individuality of each of our clients, lawyers, and staff. This gives us the freedom to practice law based on our individual strengths and, more importantly, allows us to focus fully on our clients, offering the exceptional service they deserve. Maslon has a depth of experience in the principal areas of Business & Securities, Financial Services, and Litigation. We have nationally recognized practices in the areas of Tort & Product Liability, Business Litigation, Construction Litigation, and Appeals. To further support the needs of our commercial clients, we offer strong practices in Advertising & Marketing, Employee Benefits, Labor & Employment, Mergers & Acquisitions, Tax, Estate Planning, Bankruptcy, Corporate Trust Representation, Real Estate, and Insurance Litigation.

Practice Areas

Maslon LLP practices law in the following areas and works with its clients to provide the best possible legal solutions.

Hiring Criteria

Maslon LLP follows the set of hiring criteria outlined below.

We are looking for highly motivated, mature, creative individuals with diverse backgrounds, superior academic credentials (top 25% preferred) and significant personal achievements

Pro bono

Maslon recognizes that we must act as a leader, both in our profession and within the communities we serve, to address the rising incidence of unmet legal needs among the disadvantaged. As attorneys, we believe such work is our moral and ethical responsibility and is fundamental to the integrity of the judicial system. These values are paramount to our firm, inherited through six decades of faithful service to the community.

Our long-standing commitment to pro bono work includes participation in the Pro Bono Challenge, a pact formed by the nation's largest law firms to significantly increase the amount of pro bono work being performed by their organizations. In addition, Maslon is a participant in the Minnesota State Bar Association North Star Lawyers program, which recognizes members who provide 50 hours or more of pro bono legal services per year to those who otherwise could not afford representation.

Diversity Write a review

Maslon is committed to achieving a diverse and inclusive workplace of attorneys and staff with respect to, among other things, age, race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, socio-economic background, disability, lifestyle and political views. We believe that the diversity of our firm enriches our culture, and advances the community around us. By reflecting a wide variety of perspectives, Maslon is better positioned to serve our clients.

"The single most defining moment in my career was in 1993 when Maslon invited me to join their practice. I wanted an environment where I could practice law and be an integral part of the life of my children and family. Maslon enabled me to develop my practice using alternative work schedules and rise through the ranks at our firm to become its 2003-2007 Chair. It is critical for each of us to find the right environment in which to develop our full potential. Maslon has enabled, encouraged, and coached me to do so." - Terri Krivosha, Partner

Summer associate program

At Maslon, we believe that training is not a one-size-fits-all approach. Rather, our training program is customized and includes a tailored mix of hands-on experience, practical substantive training sessions, and outside training. Here's an overview of the program components:
