Bassford Remele is a full-service litigation firm that devotes its practice exclusively to providing trial and appellate repreesntation for local, national, and international clients in a wide array of business litigation.

Commercial Litigation

Trust and Estate Litigation

Bassford Remele’s Trust and Estate Litigation Group has been involved in many of the most high-profile trust and estate lawsuits in Minnesota during the last 25 years. Our team of attorneys serves business, family, individual and charitable organization clients – including trustees, trust companies, beneficiaries, guardians, conservators, personal representatives and other fiduciary organizations.

Our attorneys are experienced with and sensitive to the dynamics that are unique to trust and estate disputes. We understand that there is more to these disputes than dollars and cents; a conflict over a trust, will or estate can involve complex family dynamics and emotional issues that make resolution difficult. Our experience distinctly qualifies us to navigate clients through these types of issues, including:

Representative Cases:

Representative Clients:  U.S. Bank, U.S. Trust (now Bank of America), and the Williams Family (heirs to founder of Creamette Pasta Company).  In addition, the Firm has represented a number of beneficiaries of large Minnesota dynasty trusts in which litigation was prosecuted under seal and subject to confidentiality orders.

Bassford Remele Lawyers:  Lewis A. Remele, Jr., Alan I. Silver (Chair), Patrick J. Sauter, Robin Ann Williams, Steven M. Sitek, Casey D. Marshall, Amie E. Penny Sayler, and Aram V. Desteian.
