Karla Vehrs, a Lindquist & Vennum partner, commercial litigator and appellate lawyer in the firm’s business litigation group, has been recognized by Minnesota Lawyer as one of Minnesota’s Up & Coming attorneys for 2013. The annual listing honors lawyers who distinguish themselves in their first 10 years of practice through professional accomplishment, leadership and service to the community and the legal profession.

Vehrs was recognized for her breadth of experience and ability to represent clients effectively on a broad range of issues, including real estate, franchise and distribution law, construction, and bankruptcy litigation. Vehrs was also recognized for contributions she has made in cases involving important issues of the day, including on pro bono work through the Advocates for Human Rights and Immigrant Law Center of Minnesota.

She is a member of the MSBA Real Property Section’s legislative committee, and she has presented annually at the MSBA Real Property Institute and HCBA regarding developments in real property law.

"It is truly an honor to be recognized by Minnesota Lawyer as an Up & Coming Attorney," said Vehrs. “The Twin Cities’ legal community is filled with many talented lawyers and I am humbled to be included among them.”

Vehrs, a native of Appleton, Wisconsin, graduated from the University of Minnesota Law School and received her bachelor's degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

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".
