Wynne Reece represents businesses of varying sizes, creative entrepreneurs, artists, professional entities (such as law firms, mental health practices, or dental practices), and individuals, in a variety of commercial matters, including general structure, client relations and disputes, business growth strategy, mergers and acquisitions, intellectual property (e.g. trademark, trade dress and copyright), real estate, team structure compliance and mediation.
Wynne is uniquely situated when representing clients, as she has started two successful businesses and successfully transitioned both of them. She understands the challenges facing business owners, the investment that many make into their business from an emotional and physical aspect, as well as a financial one, and she is herself a creative, and thus thinks like one too. She founded The Creative’s Counsel® in 2015 which focuses on supporting business owners, by offering them accessible and approachable legal work, with counsel they can relate to; to date Wynne has worked with over 1500 clients in an outside counsel capacity.
Wynne continues her passionate commitment to philanthropic ventures, has historically completed over 150 pro bono hours per year since her licensure, including founding a pro bono legal clinic in North Minneapolis, she has served on a number of committees and boards, she has served as the Mock Trial Chair for the Minnesota State Bar Association, and she was most recently an adjunct professor at Mitchell Hamline School of Law.
