Roy S. Ginsburg is an attorney coach, independent CLE provider, and solo employment law and marketing ethics practitioner. He has more than 20 years of first hand experience fostering client relationships while practicing in a large law firm (Dorsey & Whitney), a small law firm, his own firm, and corporate legal departments (including Merrill Corporation and Minnegasco). While serving as in-house counsel, he was often a client of law firms, giving him the added perspective of having been on the receiving end of law firm marketing efforts and an understanding of the level of service clients want.
As a member of the Minnesota State Bar Association's (MSBA) Rules of Professional Conduct Committee and the Hennepin County Bar Association's (HCBA) Ethics Committee, Roy stays current on ethics issues. He received the 2003 President’s Award from the MSBA for his participation on its Task Force on the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct.
As the former President of the Minnesota chapter of the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC, f/k/a ACCA), a professional organization serving the needs of in-house counsel, Roy gained invaluable knowledge about how corporations buy and perceive the value of legal services.
Roy participated on the Business Law Pro Bono Task Force of the MSBA and is a founding Board member of LegalCORPS. He is a member of the MSBA’s Legal Assistance to the Disadvantaged (LAD) and Diversity Committees. He was also recently appointed to serve as a member of the MSBA's Task Force on Diversity in the Profession
Roy has an undergraduate degree in industrial and labor relations from Cornell University and attended the University of Wisconsin Law School where he was an editor on The Wisconsin Law Review.
