DuMond Kottke has a national practice, with a focus on real estate development, financing, acquisition and sales, commercial leasing and construction.

"Amy represents the entire cross section of participants in real estate transactions including, borrowers, lenders, owners, landlords, tenants and developers and her broad experience provides additional depth to our real estate practice and transactional group," said Dean Parker, Chair of the firm's Commercial Transactions Practice Group. "The pandemic has presented a number of challenging legal issues and caused significant upheaval in the real estate sector, and we know that clients will benefit from Amy’s experience in working through these issues."

"Hinshaw’s national footprint and diversity of practice areas, including tax and insurance litigation, will be really useful in supporting my practice," said DuMond Kottke. "Having lawyers in various states will greatly benefit my clients and my practice, and also provides significant growth opportunity for my practice."

L.J. Rotman, a partner in the firm's Minneapolis office and past chair of the firm's Real Estate and Construction Practice Group added: "Having worked with Amy for a number of years, I’m pleased to have her as part of our team."
