Anne Marie Solberg: Trusted Counselor & Advisor

“What makes Opus special?" said Anne Marie Solberg​, Senior Associate General Counsel. “It's the people. Our founder Gerry Rauenhorst really knew what he was doing by creating a vertically integrated company with all the experts in house. We have developers, architects, engineers, designers, project managers and of course, lawyers," she said with a smile. “You get smarter every day just talking to people around here."

Anne Marie has 27 years of experience in real estate and construction law and has been a critical member of the Opus legal department for more than 12 years. As Senior Associate General Counsel, she helps manage the legal department, and she provides strategic legal counsel organization-wide, working collaboratively with senior leaders and project leaders to efficiently and creatively solve legal matters on behalf of Opus.

Prior to joining Opus, Anne Marie spent several years in private practice at Parsinen Kaplan Rosberg & Gotlieb (now Barnes & Thornburg) where she served Opus as outside counsel. She was also an attorney at Briggs and Morgan (now Taft) and Oppenheimer (now Fox Rothschild). Anne Marie passed the bar in 1995 after earning her law degree from Mitchell Hamline School of Law and a Bachelor's degree from the University of Minnesota.

“Anne Marie is an extremely talented attorney with an incredible ability to analyze challenging legal issues and help guide our business teams to creative and productive solutions," said Tom Hoben​, Vice President & General Counsel. “Her legal skills, combined with her great energy, enthusiasm, and respect for her fellow associates, make her a highly valued member of both our legal team and greater team Opus."

When asked what she enjoys about her work, Anne Marie said, “Problem-solving is one of the things I enjoy most."

She also enjoys the variety, as there's something new and interesting to work on every day.

“But most of all, the people at Opus are what makes my work so rewarding. Being part of this team, part of the solutions we create is really exciting."


In her free time, Anne Marie enjoys spending time with family, friends, and her rescue dog. Her happy place is outdoors doing anything.
