Bill Gschwind is the founder of Minnesota Construction Law Services and currently serves as the Principal Attorney. Bill Gschwind attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison for undergrad then went on to graduate from the University of St. Thomas with an MBA while working in sales management. Later, Bill opened a general rental equipment store and bought a construction equipment rental franchise. But he didn’t stop there. After a successful 25-year career, Bill went on to graduate from William Mitchell College of Law, passed the Minnesota Bar in 2010, and two years later opened Minnesota Construction Law Services. Whew.

Bill’s determination lays the foundation of Minnesota Construction Law Services’ dedication to not only build a successful construction law firm but to become a valued business partner for clients. His vast experience with small businesses allows Bill to advise clients on business operations that go beyond just the law. Bill listens to your goals and what you define as success then he creates a plan to get you there.

Bill’s dissatisfaction with the way the legal system works for business owners motivated him to not just seek out a better option, but to create the best option. An option that redefines the preconception of ‘lawyer’ to be someone who treats you like a partner.

Bill and his wife, Jeanne, have four grown children. When Bill is not working, he is keeping himself and his hands busy. From remodeling the interior of his house or the various landscaping projects, he likes to be able to step back and say, “I built that.” I guess that’s why he gets along with contractors so well. If Bill couldn’t get any more notable, he is also a pilot and scuba diver.
