K. Davis Senseman
Davis founded DLO in 2010 after nearly a decade of practicing in the corporate department of a larger law firm. Armed with this experience and knowledge of legal solutions used by large entities, Davis set out to bring the same level of service to smaller organizations and individuals. The mission was three-fold: provide top-notch legal work, charge fair prices for it, and never stop evolving to meet the changing needs of clients. Over eight years and more than 900 clients later, Davis is proud of the assistance DLO provides for companies large and small, and the expanding service they now offer for individuals and families. Davis is originally from the East Coast but now calls Minnesota home, except when it comes to football teams. Davis graduated cum laude from Bucknell University with degrees in Sociology and English, and magna cum laude from Mitchell | Hamline School of Law. Davis now teaches the Business Law Clinic at Mitchell | Hamline School of Law and serves on the advisory board of Mainstreet Alliance of Minnesota, providing small businesses a voice on the most pressing public policy issues; the Board of Directors of Still Kickin, a non-profit dedicated to building a braver, more supportive world; and the Board of Outfront Minnesota Action, making LGBTQ equity politically feasible on a local and state level. Davis lives in Northeast Minneapolis with wife Sarah, their two sons, two adorable (but not very bright) bulldogs and a cat named Simon.
When Emily met Davis for coffee in 2013 it was clear that the two shared the same professional core values: thinking outside the box, adding real value to clients’ lives, fee transparency, and holistic advocacy, to name a few. DLO was ready to add on another attorney, Emily was ready to join forces with the awesome DLO and CoCo energy, and the rest is history! Emily sees herself as “general counsel” for people who happen to be business owners. Prior to coming on board with DLO, Emily litigated and negotiated family law cases, was trained and worked as a mediator, and clerked for two different judges. Before attending law school at the University of Minnesota, Emily worked at a magazine for a number of years and earned her bachelors degree in English Literature from the University of Wisconsin – Madison. Despite being a lawyer, she is also a creative person. She and her spouse, Mark, have three young kids and a Frenchie named Walter, .
