Wisconsin Labor Law Attorneys

Labor Law Experts Helping Union Employees Stand and Fight for Their Workplace Rights in Milwaukee, Madison and throughout Wisconsin

The “labor movement” is not an abstract phrase to our attorneys. We represent unions and are proud of it. The relationships between the firm and several of our union clients extend back thirty years or more. Experience counts.

Services of our firm’s labor attorneys include:

• Negotiation of collective bargaining agreements and other issues in the interest of public and private sector labor unions
• Advocacy and representation of union client in grievance and interest arbitration
• Advocacy and protection of the rights of unions and their members including enforcement of the Wisconsin Municipal and State Employment Relations Acts and the National Labor Relations Act.
