Serving Clients for Over 160 Years

“As we approach our 11th business anniversary, I am thankful that Meissner Tierney has been on our side from the beginning." 

Brian Lammi, President, Lammi Sports Management, Inc.

Since its beginning in 1848, our firm has been located in downtown Milwaukee, in the heart of the city's major financial, business and governmental district.  From its inception, the firm and its attorneys have been active in the local, state and national legal community.  Through the hard work and discipline of our predecessor attorneys, the firm has survived—indeed, often thrived—through all types of business, economic, political and other historical periods in the past 160-plus years.

Through it all, the firm has represented tens of thousands of clients.  These include all types of clients—from Fortune 500 companies, to budding entrepreneurs, to private individuals—in all types of matters—from multi-million-dollars lawsuits or transactions, to the formation of a limited liability company, to drafting a simple estate plan—and everything in between.  Within this diversity, we are especially experienced and equipped to handle all matters related to closely held businesses, a staple of our client base.

Wisconsin SesquicentennialSince 1989, our offices have been located on the 19th and 20th floors of The Milwaukee Center—an impressive office, hotel and theater complex, bordered by historic City Hall to the east, the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts to the north, the Milwaukee River to the west, and the "Bronze Fonz" to the south.  The firm continues its proud association with Wisconsin's largest city, and with all the good things related to our hometown.

Still, for many years, and certainly presently, our attorneys have taken lead roles in lawsuits and transactions all across the United States—and internationally.  Our clients recognize that, especially in this day and age, what matters is the quality and affordability of our legal services, as well as our sophistication, which matches or surpasses many larger firms.

Additionally, our firm's size and sophistication perfectly positions us to serve as local counsel in matters where clients have lead counsel from outside of Wisconsin.  This is true for litigation, transactional or, really, any matters for which the insights and abilities of our attorneys can add value.  What's more, nearly all of our attorneys are involved in numerous state and local bar associations, as well as other professional groups, enhancing our value as local counsel.
