If you check out NewBreedLaw.com, it takes you to the site of Minnesota firm Halleland Lewis Nilan & Johnson. It has six practice areas: labor and employment, business law, intellectual property litigation, product liability and mass tort litigation, commercial litigation, and health care.
The Minneapolis-based firm claims to be a new breed, explaining on its website:

It means we’ve combined the specialized legal knowledge of our attorneys in small, boutique-like multidisciplinary teams where each member draws from a complete understanding of our clients’ industries to maximize your business results.

Given their coining the term “expertique,” we’re going to have to up their “Obnoxious Lawyer Schtick” content from 0% to 15%.
