Wessels Sherman's Minnesota office hosted the firm's annual labor and employment law seminar for employers, accountants, attorneys and other business professionals on April 28, 2017 at the beautiful Radisson Blu, Mall of America hotel. James Sherman, firm President/CEO and Founder/Managing Shareholder of our Minneapolis office, welcomed the room full of attendees who came from four different states and a broad spectrum of industries and fields. After delivering the day's first presentation on drastic changes taking place in workplace laws and regulations in 2017, Mr. Sherman served as moderator to introduce the many other presenters throughout the day. Special Guest Speaker Nick Rogers, President/CEO of Minnesota's newest major league sports team (and a lawyer who previously practiced in the private sector), regaled the audience with the fascinating story behind Minnesota United's mercurial rise from the lower division league, to one of the countries two MLS expansion teams in 2017, to breaking ground on a brand new, privately financed, soccer specific stadium in May of this year. The club's success story can be an inspiration to businesses of all sizes and industries!
