Office Assistant

Boardman Clark is one of Madison’s oldest and most distinguished law firms. We serve individuals, businesses and public sector clients. While we have strong Madison roots, our practice has broader regional, national and global reach.

At Boardman Clark, we are grounded by a few founding principles that guide all our client relationships. We know that the best advocacy starts with an uncompromising ethical backbone, and that our clients’ trust is not given lightly and must be earned every day. We know clients don’t just need someone who will tell them what they want to hear. Clients need candor: thoughtful, unvarnished, balanced counsel at every turn.

Boardman Clark’s 20,000+ square foot office overlooking Madison’s Capitol Square is the place our firm calls home. It’s the place where attorneys, clients, administrators, support staff, and community stakeholders all come together. Centrally located, our offices are an ideal spot for meetings and planning strategy. Our offices are located on the fourth and fifth floors of the U.S. Bank building; only minutes to dozens of restaurants and shops. With access to a rooftop patio and garden, it is also a great place to unwind after work for events and to take-in everything downtown Madison has to offer.

If you are passionate about advocacy and delivering exceptional customer service, appreciate working in a fast-paced environment in the heart of downtown Madison, and enjoy variety and challenge in your work, then you should consider joining the Boardman Clark team.

States Lifting of COVID Restrictions Do Not Lift Federal Safety Responsibility

Labor & Employment Update | 06.07.21

Most states are lifting mask, distancing and other COVID restrictions. Some, such as Texas, have forbidden any counties or cities from requiring masks and distancing in public places, schools, and government facilities, and from having any rules which apply to private sector businesses or employers. Employers, though, may still impose their own rules in their operations. States’ decisions do not void federal rules or standards.
