Martin Lueck leads one of the nation’s elite trial and litigation corps, with billions in wins from coast to coast, from $520M in the Eolas case against Microsoft to the much-contested and ongoing $7.25B Mas­tercard antitrust battle. So it may come as a bit of a surprise that Lueck meets questions about his craft and career with a good-natured, salt-of-the-earth attitude. That probably has quite a lot to do with his rise from a passionate music education student who loved jazz through his nighttime education at William Mitchell Law School, to his role as leader of the 230-all trial lawyer firm—an organization that he entered in 1983 as part-time law clerk and has never left.
