Litigation Is Our Business

Attorney Mark K. ThompsonMark K. Thompson

20 Years of Business Law and Litigation Experience

Mark K. Thompson has been practicing business law and litigation since 1999. His business litigation experience is broad. In addition, he has extensive appellate experience in civil and criminal matters. Mark founded his law firm, MKT Law, in 2012 after over a decade with a larger downtown law firm.

MKT Law’s clients include businesses and individuals in the Minneapolis / St. Paul metro, throughout greater Minnesota, across the nation, and even around the globe. MKT Law is focused on representing small and mid-sized businesses in litigation.

MKT Law represents a broad array of professionals, contractors, oil and biofuel companies, real estate brokers and developers, health care providers, restaurants, bars, and much more.

MKT Law leverages new technologies to assist in handling cases efficiently, economically, and effectively. The firm is continuously analyzing emerging technological tools to determine if they can be a benefit in practice. We look beyond what is being marketed as “tech for lawyers” and evaluate new advances no matter what industry they may be geared to initially.

By doing this, MKT Law can be on the cutting edge of new tech tools and use these skills and the inherent advantage to stay ahead of opponents with much larger budgets and what appears to be many more resources.

Mark is a proactive, creative, and strategic litigator. In 2005, 2006, 2007, and 2008, he was named a "Rising Star" by Minnesota Law & Politics, Twin Cities Business Monthly, and Mpls. / St. Paul Magazine. Mark has extensive experience in complex commercial cases before state and federal courts and in arbitrations. He is adept in handling cases from the trial court level and up on appeal.

Recently, Mark’s client was victorious in holding a contractor liable on an oral promise to split the profits from a commercial renovation project, and was awarded the full amount of attorney’s fees incurred and pierced the corporate veil to hold the owner personally liable.

In another recent case, after three days of trial, Mark’s landlord client successfully fended off a tenant’s lawsuit alleging a failure to maintain and repair with no liability. In yet another, Mark’s homeowner client obtained a six-figure settlement in a construction defect case on an historic Minneapolis mansion after defeating summary judgment alleging spoliation of evidence.

In one last example, Mark is still proud of a case involving a farmer-landlord client where he convinced the Court of Appeals to reverse an award of about $500,000.00 in a lease dispute over a right of first refusal for a wild rice farm a few years ago.
