Dominick works with business owners and entrepreneurs on business formation, financing, mergers and acquisitions, employment contracts, corporate governance and other general corporate needs.

Dominick’s practice focuses on combining an understanding of business and the law in order to help companies craft strategic solutions to their idiosyncratic needs.

He represents clients of all sizes across a wide variety of industry sectors, ranging from startups to large private and public companies. For example, Dominick leveraged his experience, interest and knowledge of the brewing industry to help breweries raise money, negotiate and draft distribution agreements, structure employee compensation plans and navigate the state and federal regulatory environment during the craft beer explosion in Minnesota. Outside of the brewing industry, Dominick has experience working on multi-unit franchise acquisitions, private equity transactions, dental and orthodontic practice acquisitions, private placements of equity and debt, as well as general contract review for a variety of businesses.
