Barbara Lano Rummel Named a Top Woman in Finance by Finance & Commerce


Barbara Lano Rummel, a Lindquist & Vennum partner and management committee member, has been selected by Finance & Commerce as one of Minnesota’s Top Women in Finance for 2013. The annual listing honors finance professionals and lawyers in the state who are making outstanding contributions in their professions and communities.

Rummel was recognized for her numerous successes with merger & acquisition transactions involving publicly and privately held businesses. These deals have ranged in transaction size from under $10 million to over $1 billion. Her experience covers various industries, with particular emphasis on the life sciences, including medical device, pharmaceutical, and biotechnology companies. Most recently, she represented a local telehealth service provider in a $200 million acquisition by a major medical device company.

Rummel is actively involved in developing the social entrepreneur climate in the Twin Cities. She assisted the Hope Chest for Breast Cancer Foundation, an organization dedicated to helping under-served or financially distressed individuals and their families affected by breast cancer, in its formation and by serving a five-year tenure on its board of directors. Additionally, she was instrumental in assisting Finnegans Inc. and the Finnegans Community Fund to establish a business model that helped Finnegans become the first beer company in the world to donate 100% of its profits to local hunger alleviation charities.

"I am honored to be named alongside so many accomplished women from our financial community," said Rummel. “I have had the good fortune of working with many talented people throughout my career, and it is gratifying to be able to serve my clients and the Twin Cities’ business community with their support."

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".
