FMJ Expands Presence with Second Office

May 2016

We recently announced that our new office is open for business in New Ulm, Minn. The office is located at 700 North Minnesota Street, Suite B, in New Ulm with a toll free telephone number of (855) 806-1525.

Our expansion into the southern Minnesota community is part of our plan to expand our agricultural law practice by establishing a physical presence near many of the clients we serve. Chairing FMJ’s Agriculture group is attorney Jared D. Peterson who joined the firm this year as a shareholder.

Jared has legal experience in all aspects of agribusiness, including general corporate and transactional matters, farm succession and estate planning, and litigation. He represents a variety of cooperatives and independent elevators, including grain, feed, chemical and fuel. Jared provides representation on the full spectrum of legal issues for businesses, including governing documents, contract, employment, and real estate matters, credit issues, litigation, complex multi-state mergers, acquisitions, and more. In addition to serving business clients, Jared also represents individuals in estate planning, probate needs, and personal injury cases.

“We’re excited to expand our presence outside of the Twin Cities metro area and are confident that New Ulm is an excellent place for us to not only grow our Agriculture group, but our firm in general,” said Robert Fafinski, Jr., CEO of FMJ. “Born and raised in New Ulm, Jared is the perfect fit to run this new office, and we’re eager to get involved with and become part of the New Ulm community.”
