Charles Moorse Honored as an Attorney of the Year by Minnesota Lawyer


Charles (Chuck) Moorse, a Lindquist & Vennum partner in the firm’s mergers & acquisitions group, has been recognized by Minnesota Lawyer as one of Minnesota’s 2013 Attorneys of the Year. Honorees were chosen by a panel from submitted nominations based on procuring a successful result in an important case or business transaction, the leadership in professional associations, by the participation in newsworthy events in the legal community, or by performing significant public services or in-house legal services.

Moorse was recognized for his representation of  Cardiocom, Inc. in the $200 million cash acquisition by Medtronic, Inc. Forbes called the bellwether transaction “unusually significant” as the medical device industry migrates from mechanical products to integrated health services. In addition, Moorse represented his client Airborne, Inc., the owner of well-known immune support supplements available in retail stores nationwide, when it was sold to Schiff Nutrition Group for $150 million. Utah-based Schiff purchased all of Airborne's stock from GF Capital in an all-cash transaction.

“What I love about my work is that there’s give and take in negotiations, but both parties have the same goal,” Moorse shared with Minnesota Lawyer in a special section featuring the honorees. “When you work with entrepreneurs, that goal, the sale of their company, could potentially be a once-in-a-lifetime event, and I enjoy getting them prepared for that transaction and advising them through the closing of the deal.”

Moorse graduated from the William Mitchell College of Law and received his bachelor's degree from St. John’s University.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
