Fafinski Mark & Johnson

Power of the Big. Spirit of the Small.

Fafinski Mark & Johnson (FMJ) is a full-service commercial law firm that practices differently. Since its inception in 1999, the firm’s primary goal has been to provide the knowledge, experience and sophistication of a big firm, with the responsive, agile and customer-service-focused model of a smaller firm. In other words, FMJ provides sophisticated, accessible legal service and compelling value at a lower cost.

FMJ works with owners and managers of a diverse portfolio of multimillion-dollar businesses, as well as a wide variety of small- to mid-sized organizations, sole proprietors, entrepreneurs and individuals. In particular, the firm has struck a chord with individuals and publicly and privately held businesses seeking an alternative to the “Big Law” experience. FMJ tailors its service to each client’s needs, whether representing a Fortune 500 company, a small business, a start-up or an entrepreneur.

In recognition of its quality service and effective legal counsel, FMJ’s practices and individual lawyers have been ranked among the top providers by many of the world’s leading industry journals and ratings agencies, including The Best Lawyers in America®, Chambers USA, Super Lawyers, Minnesota Monthly Magazine, Minnesota Lawyer Magazine and more.

As a full-service firm, FMJ is organized — but not siloed! — for maximum effectiveness. Our integrated, team-based approach allows us to provide our clients with world-class, cross-disciplinary representation combined with the level of responsiveness and attention that is only possible in a smaller, more agile working environment. Among others, we advise clients in the following areas:

  • Agriculture
