Greene Espel PLLP is delighted to announce that Sybil Dunlop was recently named to the Minnesota Lawyer “POWER 30” list for Business Litigation. The POWER 30 selections result from deep reporting by the editorial team, based on the attorneys' experience, interviews with respected attorneys and others around the state, and a review of the outcomes of significant cases handled by these attorneys. When selecting the 30 attorneys, Minnesota Lawyer focused on those whose presence on a case “signifies the stakes, who have influenced the direction of the law, whose leadership in the community is pervasive and whose respect within the bar is undeniable.”
Sybil is a passionate and uncommonly persuasive advocate who helps clients resolve intellectual property and commercial disputes. Sybil’s practice affords her substantial first-chair trial and arbitration experience, as well as experience before the PTAB. Clients appreciate that “she knows the rules and law to a tee, which allows her to focus on strategy,” that “[s]he really is 100% client-focused,” and that she is “the most responsive lawyer I have ever met in my life.” (Chambers and Partners, 2020). Bringing these skills to bear, Sybil has successfully led teams in litigations around the country.
Sybil’s experience includes representing Fortune 100 companies as they navigate disputes with contractors, clients, and business partners, including post-closing disputes involving net working capital or post-closing adjustments. She also helps clients evaluate, assess, and litigate intellectual property disputes from initial risk assessment through trial and appeal.
Sybil serves on the Infinity Project board, an organization dedicated to increasing the gender diversity of the state and federal bench. She co-founded Greene Espel’s DEI practice, which helps workplaces design and implement DEI strategies and programs to meet their goals. Sybil recently co-authored “Why the Legal Profession is the Nation’s Least Diverse (and How to Fix It),” which was published in the Mitchell Hamline Law Review.
