Faris Rashid, Greene Espel, represents clients in technology, intellectual-property, and trade-secret disputes. A Fortune 100 client said that Faris’s "briefs sing, and he has won the praise of many state and federal judges for his composure and agility as an oral advocate." Faris has a particular knack for understanding cutting-edge products, technologies, and business arrangements and then explaining the issues in a way that earns the court’s trust. Faris also settles business disputes before they reach a lawsuit, provides concrete advice for navigating new areas of law, and conducts probability-based risk assessments. Outside of his litigation work, Faris is consistently invited to speak at seminars including the Minnesota Technology Law Institute, the Minnesota Business Law Institute, and the Upper Midwest Employment Law Institute, and he has presented on the impact of new data-privacy regulations in the EU.

Aaron Knoll, Greene Espel, is a business litigator. He represents national and international businesses in a wide range of commercial, consumer, and class-action disputes.

After law school, he clerked for Justice Christopher Dietzen of the Minnesota Supreme Court and Judge Paul Magnuson of the United States District Court for the District of Minnesota. For the last several years, Aaron has taught legal writing to 2Ls at St. Thomas—a subject he can’t wait to discuss.
