Thomas Hoffman Joins Lindquist & Vennum’s Financial Restructuring & Bankruptcy Practice


Lindquist & Vennum LLP is pleased to announce that Thomas E. Hoffman has joined the firm as a partner in the financial restructuring & bankruptcy practice group. His practice will focus on representing financial institutions, insurance companies and similar organizations in commercial workout and bankruptcy matters. He will also represent financial institutions in consumer regulatory and compliance matters.

Prior to joining the firm, Hoffman served as an in-house attorney in Wells Fargo & Company’s commercial restructuring and bankruptcy group and then its consumer default servicing group for more than 25 years. In this role he initially supervised the work of in-house attorneys in the commercial restructuring and bankruptcy group across the country. More recently, he managed an in-house team of attorneys handling default servicing matters across Wells Fargo’s consumer lines of business, including the real estate groups, the auto group, credit cards, student lending, and wealth management. 
“The addition of Tom Hoffman and his decades of experience with large commercial workouts provides greater depth to our financial restructuring & bankruptcy practice,” said Dennis O’Malley, managing partner at Lindquist. “Our clients will also benefit significantly from his years of experience in the consumer area.” 

Hoffman was recently appointed to the Bankruptcy Practice Committee for the District of Minnesota, is the former chair of the Hennepin County Bar Association’s Debtor/Creditor Committee, and a former board member and President of the Hennepin County Bar Foundation. He frequently presents at Continuing Legal Education (CLE) seminars and has served as an adjunct professor at William Mitchell College of Law and St. Thomas Law School.

Hoffman graduated from William Mitchell College of Law and received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Minnesota.

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.
