Solberg grew up on a farm near Cylinder and graduated from Emmetsburg High School. He continued his education at Grinnell (1994), Iowa State (1997) and the University of Iowa School of Law (2000).
"I'm so excited to be here," said Solberg. "One-hundred-percent of what I have done the last 12 years, I am doing now in Emmetsburg."
Solberg is a part of Davis Brown Law Firm, with locations in downtown Des Moines, West Des Moines and Ames.
Solberg is a patent attorney with clients in Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska and Illinois. He offers expertise in intellectual property law and patent prosecution. In his practice, Solberg serves as patent counsel to clients ranging from startups to Fortune 500 companies in a variety of industries, including the medical device, biotech and agriculture industries.
He is admitted to practice in Minnesota. Having been in Iowa for several months, Solberg received his Iowa license early in January.
"We will be doing everything from this office, from corporate to estate and tax," he said. "Whatever anyone needs, I will be able to connect them with the appropriate attorney. We have the backing of expertise and the support of 77 attorneys in the firm."
Solberg's goal is to have video conferencing available in his office, with all of the attorneys in the Davis Brown firm.
"I?look forward to being a contributing part of the community," Solberg said. "We have a lot to offer with the number of attorneys in the firm available to assist Emmetsburg residents. We are also one of only two firms with the attorney living here in Emmetsburg."
The new Davis Brown Law Office is located at 2214 Main Street. The office is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
