Our Practices

Business Litigation

Ruder Ware litigators represent clients in state and federal courts as well as alternative dispute resolution and appellate proceedings throughout Wisconsin and across the country. Working closely with clients to understand their needs, industry, and business objectives, our problem solvers handle issues ranging from straightforward to complex, with a goal of a cost-effective resolution. Should legal disputes extend beyond Wisconsin, Ruder Ware's affiliation with Meritas®, an international alliance of law firms, means our network of lawyers can provide counsel for clients anywhere in this country or around the world.

Experienced in all aspects of pretrial procedure and discovery, we understand that most cases are resolved prior to trial.
