Bring your Bulldog! Business owners dealing with a bad business partner trust me because I am an award-winning business partner dispute  lawyer. Over the past 30 years, I have won more than $300 million for my clients. My reputation as a bulldog lawyer was earned as an aggressive, tenacious, and practical advocate in more than 150 disputes. I can often leverage strength early to reach a favorable settlement.

I have the experience and resources to go to court against any bad business partner. Recent successes include disputes with state government, big oil, and big pharma. My unique background handling high stakes transactions and big-money lawsuits enables me to navigate the nuances of both the business and litigation aspects in a business divorce.


In 2006, Minnesota Lawyer named Mr. Moore Attorney of the Year. Minnesota Physician named him a Leading Minnesota Health Care Attorney in 2005. Throughout his career, he has taken on large entities like government agencies, big pharma and big oil. Along with complex legal matters, he handles the basic business law topics such as sales agreements, leases and employment contracts. He advises clients in a variety of industries, including the following: real estate, health care, sports, media and oilfield services.

With a major in government, Mr. Moore graduated with his Bachelor of Science from St. John’s University. He then attended law school at the University of Minnesota Law School, where he graduated with his Juris Doctor in 1988. He is now admitted to practice in both North Dakota and Minnesota.
