Advised National Commercial Truck and Trailer Dealer During Expansion Into Minnesota


Our client is a national dealer of commercial trucks and trailers. When it decided to enter the market in Minnesota, it sought out Larkin Hoffman to advise it on both its dealership license and the site being targeted for its dealership operations. We quickly focused the client on the need to secure control and approval of its physical business location before turning to the dealership license process. Following initial resistance by city staff as to the scale of operations being proposed, we promptly obtained unanimous support of the required site approvals, including a conditional use permit and variances. With the approvals in hand, the client can now focus its attention on securing their dealership license and commence operations in early 2016.
