About Us

Lacee Bjork Anderson

Lacee is the Founder and CEO of The Birch Group LLC. 

She has had a passion for law and public policy from a young age. Lacee graduated cum laude from Concordia College in Moorhead, MN in 2001 with a degree in International Relations, Business and Spanish and received her law degree cum laude from William Mitchell College of Law in 2004. Before getting the political bug, she worked for the Minnesota State Public Defender and practiced commercial litigation for a mid-sized Twin Cities firm.  

Since working her first political campaign nearly twenty years ago, Lacee has put her relational and legal acumen to work for her clients. She returned to her home state of North Dakota in 2013 and went to work for the Senate Majority Leader during the 2015 legislative session. She immediately joined a top public affairs firm, where she focused on lobbying, politics, and public affairs. Her common sense, astute approach has earned the trust of clients and lawmakers alike, ranging from federal and state political candidates to Fortune 100 companies.  Lacee is licensed to practice law in North Dakota and Minnesota.

The Birch Group is a reflection of Lacee's midwestern values of hard work, integrity, and dedication. The name is also a nod to Lacee's Scandinavian roots (bjørk=birch in Norwegian) , which represents growth and new beginnings.
