Mark K. Thompson has been practicing business law and litigation since 1999. His business litigation experience is broad and in addition he has extensive experience in closely held businesses with ownership disputes. Mark founded his law firm, MKT Law, PLC, in 2012 after over a decade with a larger downtown law firm.

MKT Law’s clients include businesses and individuals in the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro, throughout greater Minnesota, across the nation and even around the globe. MKT Law is focused on representing small and mid-sized businesses in litigation. MKT Law represents a broad array of professionals, contractors, oil and biofuel companies, real estate brokers and developers, financial service companies, health care providers, wholesalers, manufacturers, restaurants, bars the list goes on. If the case is in litigation, or needs to be, MKT Law can help.

MKT Law provides personalized representation with an understanding for business that only comes from those who have owned their own. Because litigation is always fluid and constantly evolving, you need a lawyer who can see the changes coming and a law firm that is agile enough to alter course and meet the next challenge rapidly.
