Lindquist & Vennum Opens Sioux Falls, South Dakota Office With Leading Sioux Falls Attorneys


Lindquist & Vennum LLP announced today that it has opened an office in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.  The expansion will allow Lindquist & Vennum to broaden its already significant representation of business, banking, and trusts and estates clients in South Dakota.  Sioux Falls attorneys Lee Magnuson, Mary Akkerman, Amy Arndt, Dan Fritz, Brian Kirby, Amy Ross Lauck and Heath Oberloh are moving their practices to the new office.  Magnuson, a prominent Sioux Falls lawyer, will be the partner-in-charge of the new office, which joins the firm’s existing offices in Minneapolis and Denver.  Lindquist & Vennum, with nearly 200 attorneys, has earned quality rankings in a number of practice areas.  The firm maintains a strong commitment to pro bono and community service, with 100% attorney participation at levels that meet or exceed state and national pro bono standards.

"Our firm has deep roots in South Dakota, where we have been serving a variety of businesses, financial institutions and individuals for more than 20 years” remarked Dennis O’Malley, the Managing Partner of Lindquist & Vennum.  “We are now fortunate to have a top notch group of Sioux Falls attorneys to serve these clients, and we are excited to share our firm’s breadth of services with the clients they have developed over the course of their careers in Sioux Falls.  Sioux Falls’ healthy business climate,  particularly its growing importance as a center for financial institutions and trust companies, makes it a place we want to be.”

Lee Magnuson, the partner in charge of the new Lindquist & Vennum Sioux Falls office, says “The attorneys we have brought together are talented and respected members of the local bar who put a premium on client service. Lindquist & Vennum has a great reputation for the quality of their legal work, their strong client relationships, and for community involvement. It’s a great fit.” Magnuson adds “We look forward to helping both existing and new clients in South Dakota while having the added expertise of our colleagues in Minneapolis and Denver to call on when that would be helpful.” 

Lindquist & Vennum clients in South Dakota include First Premier Bank and a number of other financial institutions, agricultural equipment and processing businesses and individuals.

Local businessman and client T. Denny Sanford said concerning the new office, “Lindquist & Vennum is a good cultural fit for South Dakota. They do excellent work and will fit well in the community.”

Lindquist & Vennum’s Sioux Falls office will initially be located at 100 S. Dakota Avenue.  The firm is considering the possibility of moving to another downtown location later this year.

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.
