Brendan Tupa is an attorney in Messerli Kramer’s Business Litigation group, where he focuses his practice on solving complex legal issues both inside and outside the courtroom. He has a deep bench of experience in both state and federal courts, and his practice has touched everything from contract and construction cases to product liability and trademark suits.
Brendan is often brought to a case when it involves a variety of legal considerations. Prior to joining Messerli Kramer, he served as the chair of the litigation group for a boutique firm in the renewable energy space, and before that, he worked in-house for a Fortune 100 Insurance Company, where he managed an average caseload of 75+ files. As a result, he understands both sides of the litigation coin: knowing how to successfully navigate a client’s needs at trial, while also being aware of the benefits to litigation avoidance.
Brendan is an MSBA Certified Civil Trial Specialist and a Qualified Rule 114 Neutral, and he is licensed to practice in Minnesota, North Dakota, the District of Minnesota, and the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals.
