The article “Doing Business the Mankato Way” in the October issue of Twin Cities Business Magazine feaures Julia Ketcham Corbett, one of Blethen, Gage and Krause’s managing partners. The article focuses on the growth of Mankato, the vitality of its business community and the community’s quality of life and livibility.
“When Julia Ketcham Corbett graduated from Hamline University Law School in St. Paul, Blethen Gage & Krause in Mankato offered her a job. She eagerly accepted it, thinking she would spend a few years with the law firm and eventually make her way back to the Twin Cities.
That was 18 years ago, and all thoughts of leaving Mankato have long since disappeared.
Today, Ketcham Corbett is a managing partner in the 116-year-old general practice law firm that has 14 lawyers on staff. “I fell in love with the community and the job,” she says. “I have great work-life balance here. It’s a growing community, which is good for our business, but I can still go to the grocery store and run into someone I know. It’s a safe community, where you know who your kids are going to school with. The cost of living and salaries are competitive, and it’s a beautiful area.” Click here to read the full article.
