  • Attorney Spotlight: Shayne Hamann
    February 29, 2024
    How do you approach building and maintaining strong client relationships? Building strong relationships with my clients is important to me. I believe I do this best by providing individual attention to each client and the needs of the applicable file. I have vast knowledge in handling Minnesota automobile claims, including first and third party cases, assessing and handling insurance coverage cases as well as class action litigation. I strive to ensure my clients have the latest information on Minnesota case law germane to their line of work as well as hands on training to make their job as a claims adjuster or manager more streamlined. My clients appreciate my amiable and compassionate personality and my willingness to always jump in, roll up my sleeves and help no matter the case, situation or time of day!

  • Coverage Spotlight: Beth Jenson Prouty
    February 29, 2024
    What inspired you to become an attorney, and how did you choose your specific field of law? After law school, I clerked for the Minnesota Supreme Court for a year and then went to Arthur Chapman. I focused on writing complex motions and appeals across a variety of practice areas. One day, the firm was hiring for its Insurance Coverage Group. It initially didn’t even occur to me to apply until a partner sold me on the group, telling me it would fit my skill set of research, writing, and appeals. He was right! I hit the ground running with two appeals to the Minnesota Court of Appeals and one to the Eighth Circuit in my first year of coverage work.

  • Three Minnesota Supreme Court Justices Invite Minnesota Legislature to Explore Regulating Litigation-Finance Industry in Minnesota
    August 29, 2023
    On August 23, 2023, the Minnesota Supreme Court in Pamela Maslowski v. Prospect Funding Partners LLC, et al., No. A21-1338, unanimously held that litigation-finance contracts are not subject to Minnesota usury law. But that’s not the end of the story, for three important reasons. First, the Court remanded for the district court to consider whether the contract’s 60% interest rate is unconscionable. Second, a three-justice concurrence road-mapped an analysis that very well could lead the district court to find the rate unconscionable. That appears to have been the concurring justices’ intent.
