Firm Details

Stafford Rosenbaum, with offices located in Madison and Milwaukee, is a full-service law firm with an experienced team of 51 attorneys.

Business leaders turn to us because we know business. We harness the collective experience of our business attorneys and litigators to solve legal needs arising in the areas of antitrust and trade, bankruptcy and creditors’ rights, business law, dealership and franchise, employment and labor law, environmental law, intellectual property, litigation, real estate, and alternative dispute resolution.

Government leaders turn to us because of our extensive experience in local and state government. We serve as general counsel for more than 13 Wisconsin local governments and act as special counsel for a variety of municipal and county governments, advising in areas such as public utility, government and administration, employment and labor law, and environmental law.

Leaders in the legal profession refer their clients to us when a conflict prevents them from handling a matter, or for experience they may not have. They know we provide solutions to their clients’ legal needs in all of the areas listed above, as well as estate planning and probate, family law, and insurance law.

Community leaders turn to us for our legal knowledge and our commitment to local communities.

As we celebrate our 135th anniversary, effective client communication continues to be at the heart of our practice.
