About Our Firm

The Experience to Know the Right Way to go

Since 1929, Meagher & Geer has been building the depth and experience that today serve our clients with 80+ lawyers from offices in Minneapolis, Chicago, Phoenix, and Bismarck. We’ve become one of the leading civil litigation and insurance coverage firms in the country for a reason – we have the experience to know the right way to go.

The right way to go starts with a deep understanding of the client’s business and professional objectives. We listen. We assess risk. We develop and explain alternative strategies. We deliver results. No wonder more than 125 U.S. and international insurance firms rely on Meagher & Geer to provide responsive and cost-effective legal services. And we do so not only on behalf of insurers, but on behalf of medical, legal, design and other professionals; businesses of all sizes; public entities; non-profit organizations; and individuals.

Sometimes the right way to go is trial – our attorneys have tried more than 250 cases to verdict. Sometimes it’s appeal – our attorneys have handled more than 750 appeals. Still other times, managing risk and optimizing resources make resolution the right way to go.  Whether it’s employment; professional liability; construction; environmental; products liability; fire, explosion, and catastrophic loss; toxic tort, or one of the myriad of other services we provide, clients can count on Meagher & Geer to know the right way to go.

Our depth and experience are available nationwide. Including our four office locations, we have attorneys licensed in eighteen states: Arizona, California, Colorado, Georgia, Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, North Dakota, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming. Meagher & Geer lawyers have been awarded high rankings in Chambers USA, Best Lawyers in America, Martindale, U.S. News – Best Lawyers®, Minnesota Super Lawyers®, and Southwest Super Lawyers®.

We’re also pleased to be a member of the Harmonie Group, a vetted international organization of independent law firms.
