Milwaukee's second largest firm, Quarles & Brady has
successfully combined its Midwestern roots with multi-region power
through thriving litigation and bankruptcy practices.
From Milwaukee to China with Love
Quarles & Brady was formed from a 1974 merger of two
longstanding Milwaukee practices, Brady, Tyrrell, Cotter &
Cutler and Quarles, Herriott, Clemons, Teschner & Noelke. In
2000, the firm added to its bases in Illinois and Wisconsin by
merging with Arizona's Streich Lang, opening offices in Phoenix and
Tucson. The firm also has two offices in Florida. In 2007, Quarles
& Brady launched its China Law Group and opened its first
foreign office in China several years later. Attorneys at the
firm's Shanghai office advise clients on issues like foreign direct
investment, mergers and acquisitions, securities offerings, joint
ventures, intellectual property, regulatory issues, commercial
contracting and corporate and governmental relations.
With practice areas in corporate services, environmental law,
intellectual property, labor & employment, litigation &
dispute resolution, real estate and others, the firm has landed
recognizable clients such as the Harley-Davidson Motor Company,
Miller Brewing Company and Wells Fargo Bank. The firm is strong in
litigation-it has acted as defense counsel in massive class action
and product liability suits involving asbestos, tobacco, tires,
vaccines and forklifts. Quarles & Brady also has a thriving
bankruptcy practice, which has handled airlines, casinos, resorts
and dot-com companies gone bust.
Leader in Diversity
Recognized nationally and locally for its diversity initiatives,
Quarles & Brady sponsors minority scholarships and internships
and has a "Women in Leadership" program. The firm's chairman, John
Daniels, was named by the National Law Journal as one of
50 most influential diverse attorneys nationwide.
Strategic Alliances and Political
Quarles & Brady is a member of United States Law Firm Group,
a consortium of 18 mid-sized law firms. The firm has also forged an
alliance with the Capitol Group, a Wisconsin lobbying firm. But its
contact with legislators and policymakers doesn't stop there. Tony
Earl, former Democratic governor of Wisconsin, is a retired partner
of the firm. Wisconsin Democratic Congressman Ron Kind also once
graced the halls of Quarles & Brady.
