We represent a wide range of clients, including WMC, local business associations, employers, and workers. They all share one thing in common: they rely on our courts to protect them when the government acts beyond its authority. They seek to hold the government accountable when it violates the law and harms our state’s economy.

Our donors know how hard it is to fight alone. Government agencies regulate nearly every part of daily life. The individual worker, farmer, or Main Street business owner does not have the resources to fight the government in court when it imposes unlawful and costly regulations on them.
But our donors know that these issues affect everyone. They are willing to fight, not just alongside the person, but for the rule of law in Wisconsin. Our impact litigation aims to protect our individual clients while also serving the public interest.
Our team monitors action at all levels: from initial agency rulemaking to Supreme Court rulings. We have assisted clients before administrative law judges, joined cases as intervenors, and written amicus briefs for the appellate courts.
