If you own a business, your lawyer should have the same interest in advancing your business goals as you do. That is why I opened Salberg Law Firm, where the experience gained from years of representing large national corporations is applied to helping Wisconsin businesses reach their goals. I provide practical legal advice clients can use to make sound business decisions. By helping businesses prevent problems in their relationships with others - including customers, regulators, employees, and suppliers - I help clients avoid costly legal issues so they can devote their time and resources to developing their business. When problems arise that require formal dispute resolution in court, mediation, or arbitration, I apply years of litigation experience to helping clients reach a swift and satisfactory resolution, helping most clients achieve favorable outcomes early in the litigation process. Typical clients are small businesses and financial institutions. Clients include community banks, credit unions, merchants, service providers, automobile dealers, food producers, marketing companies, technology companies, and businesses involved in a variety of commercial activities. Specialties: Business and Commercial Law, Business Litigation, Consumer Financial Services Law, Contract Law, Regulatory Compliance, Commercial Litigation, Corporate Law, Acquisitions.

Whyte Hirschboeck Dudek, S.C.
During more than 12 years at WHD, I counseled and represented financial institutions and other businesses in connection with consumer law compliance and litigation, with the goal of providing clients with practical legal advice they could use to make sound business decisions. Some of the ways I did this include: • Advising financial institutions, automobile dealers, and finance companies on the application of consumer laws to their unique practices and products. • Drafting and enforcing various contracts, including promissory notes, mortgage documents, security agreements, lease agreements, arbitration agreements, loan agreements, and motor vehicle purchase and finance agreements. • Litigation in state and federal court and administrative proceedings before regulatory agencies.
