Wisconsin Dealer & Franchise Law Services

The lawyers in our Wisconsin Dealer Law Group have represented and advised dealerships, distributors, and trade associations throughout Wisconsin and nationally for over 45 years. We develop protections and represent Wisconsin dealers and dealers across the country in the exercise of their rights. Our attorneys know how dealerships and franchises operate as well as the issues faced by the industry. We have worked with manufacturers regarding product distribution systems, and, except for the auto and equipment industries, we have represented manufacturers and distributors in dealership litigation. We use this knowledge and experience to provide efficient and effective services to our clients.
