Maggie Tatton, a partner in Lindquist & Vennum’s Corporate Finance and Mergers and Acquisitions practice group, has been named to the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal’s 2015 list of the “Top 40 Under 40.” Tatton was chosen from more than 600 nominations of young business and community leaders throughout the Twin Cities. The honorees represent those who have already established themselves as leaders in their industries and the community.
In her practice, Tatton represents private and public companies and private equity funds that are acquiring, selling, reorganizing, and merging their businesses. She provides assistance to start-up entrepreneurs and rapidly growing companies in the areas of entity formation, general corporate services and fund raising. In 2014, Tatton closed 11 transactions worth nearly $300,000,000 in the aggregate. For many of these transactions, she represented private equity funds. Tatton is considered one of the top female attorneys in Minnesota who currently specialize in private equity transactions.
“I am humbled to be named a “40 Under 40” honoree and to join the ranks of so many talented and inspiring professionals in the Twin Cities,” stated Tatton. “The work I do is always a team effort, so I share this award with my colleagues at Lindquist & Vennum and the incredible clients with whom I get to collaborate each day.”
Outside of her practice, Tatton serves on the Board of Directors of LegalCORPS. LegalCORPS is a nonprofit organization that provides free legal assistance in transactional matters to low-income entrepreneurs and innovators and small nonprofits in Minnesota. Additionally, for nearly six years, she has worked with the Volunteer Lawyers Network Letters to Creditors Program. This work includes preventing aggressive creditors from harassing low-income families and individuals in violation of the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act.
