John McIntyre has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Lawyers for dedication, achievements, and leadership in legal services.
For Mr. McIntyre, going into the field of law was a family affair. He grew up watching his father practice, which he started during the Great Depression. After majoring in philosophy and applying to law school, when Mr. McIntyre began taking classes in law he felt well-suited to the field. He earned a Bachelor of Arts in philosophy from the College of St. Thomas in 1963 and continued with his legal education at the University of Minnesota. He earned an LLB in 1966 and was admitted to the state bar of Minnesota that same year. He was also admitted to the US Court of Appeals Eight Circuit in 1966 and the US Supreme Court I 1984.
Mr. McIntyre began his legal career as a law clerk to a judge in the US Court of Appeals Eight Circuit. After a year in this position, he joined the firm Doherty, Rumble and Butler and remained here until 1993. That same year, Mr. McIntyre accepted the general counsel, vice president and secretary roles for The Toro Co. He maintains professional affiliation with the American Bar Association, the Minnesota Bar Association, the Hennepin City Bar Association, the Minnesota Corporate Counsel Association, the Minnesota Club and the Order of Coif.
The mentors who motivated and inspired Mr. McIntyre were all of his college professors, but Harry Blackmun truly stands out to him. He was an outstanding judge and that shaped his law career because of the year he spent learning under his tutelage. The highlight of Mr. McIntyre’s career was his overall success with the mediation program at The Toro Company during his 10 years as their general counsel. Every case was mediated and resolved without trial. He was able to continue and expand the program. The advice that Mr. McIntyre can offer others aspiring to work in his profession is to work long hours and work hard. He believes that respecting others point of view is important as well.
