Good employer-employee relations are essential to the success of any business. Our nationally recognized Labor and Employment Relations group, one of the largest in the Midwest, helps clients throughout the country make employment-related decisions and plan for the future.

Michael Best offers a comprehensive range of services in labor, employment, and employee benefits law. Chambers USA notes that our “market-leading” group has “a deep bench of experienced practitioners,” who clients say are “at the top of the game.”

We take pride in understanding your organization and its needs – whether it is publicly held or nonprofit, private or public sector; and whether your workforces are large or small, white- or blue-collar, unionized or union-free.

We counsel clients at the earliest stages of employment-related decision-making, and we help clients develop and maintain workable employment policies, practices, and procedures that comply with always evolving legal requirements. Our customized training programs can help you foster compliance, management skills, and positive employee relations.

Clients turn to us for timely solutions, proactive advice, and goal-oriented advocacy with respect to all of their employee relations needs, whether in the courtroom, during strategic planning, or at the bargaining table. We are dedicated to helping employers anticipate and plan for change, manage risk, resolve conflict, and protect their interests.

For clients with international operations, our exclusive affiliation as Wisconsin’s only member of the Employment Law Alliance can help provide seamless, cost-effective services in more than 120 countries including the U.S. and Canada. And for those interested in policymaking, our participation in employment law–focused committees established by the U.S Chamber of Commerce can give you a stronger voice with the federal government.
