MWL is pleased to welcome Erin Hutchinson, Partner at Rock Hutchinson as our guest CLE speaker and presenter on Wednesday, October 24 at 3:00p at Land O'Lakes, Inc. headquarters in Arden Hills.

Erin is an experienced commercial attorney who joined Rock Hutchinson as a partner in 2016. She offers a broad range of corporate counseling and transactional services to clients of all sizes, but focuses her practice on serving the needs of in-house law departments.


Erin started her practice in the commercial litigation group at Oppenheimer Wolff & Donnelly LLP (now Fox Rothschild LLP). She left private practice to join General Mills where she spent over a decade working on a wide range of legal matters in marketing, sales, supply chain and antitrust counseling.

Erin has deep expertise in a variety of commercial matters. Her experiences include antitrust, trade and price counseling, litigation oversight, negotiating and drafting supply and sale-side contracts, brokerage agreements, distribution agreements, marketing and advertising, sweepstakes, joint development agreements, research agreements, food law and labeling, issues management, M&A and minority investments. She also offers negotiation training and the full array of antitrust compliance training. She spends much of her time serving as outside antitrust and trade counsel.
