Jennifer Middleton (Jen)

Associate

Jen developed her health law knowledge and experience from working in the Minnesota Attorney General’s Office and for a large health care system. She’s represented health licensing boards and provided legal advice on issues from corporate structure to data privacy standards. Jen is adept at understanding her clients’ needs, steering them in the right direction, and providing practical strategies to meet their business goals. Her interest in health care has been lifelong – her mother is a nurse practitioner – allowing Jen to provide her clients advice which addresses both business and legal considerations, allowing them to focus on their medical practice.

She spent time early in her career in marketing and advertising and uses the skills she learned there to create and build meaningful relationships with clients, knowing that half the battle is finding an effective way to communicate and earn trust.

When she’s not strongly advocating for her clients, you can find Jen traveling to national parks in search of a great hiking trail or spending time outside with her two corgis.
