MINNEAPOLIS—Litigation boutique Greene Espel PLLP is pleased to announce that Sam Clark has rejoined its team of litigators, counselors, and investigators.
Sam advises clients in the public and private sector with a focus on constitutional litigation and complex business litigation. He has successfully defended clients of all sizes in high-stakes matters in state and federal courts.
Sam rejoins Greene Espel after serving as the Saint Paul city attorney (2015-2018), where he led one of the largest public law offices in Minnesota and oversaw a team of more than 70 legal professionals providing comprehensive legal services to the mayor, council, city departments, Housing Redevelopment Authority, Port Authority, and Public Housing Agency. Before his appointment as city attorney, Sam worked in senior staff positions for U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar, including in Washington, DC as the senator’s counsel on the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee and then in Minnesota as her state director.
Sam is a 2008 graduate of Yale Law School. He earned his undergraduate in Government from Harvard College in 2005. After law school, Sam clerked for the Honorable Michael J. Davis, who at the time was the Chief Judge of the United States District Court for the District of Minnesota. After clerking, Sam joined Greene Espel in 2009.
Beyond his practice, Sam serves as the vice chair of the board of directors at Ujamaa Place, a nonprofit focused on assisting young black men experiencing barriers to success such as unemployment, homelessness, drug use, racism, and frequent interactions with the criminal justice system.
“I am delighted to be rejoining Greene Espel and its collaborative culture of serving our clients,” Sam noted. “I look forward to applying the skills I’ve developed managing large legal teams and advising decision makers facing tough decisions to help clients advocate for their needs while communicating their interests to stakeholders and the public at large.”
