About Us

Friebert, Finerty & St. John was formed in 1971 with the vision of providing the caliber of representation found at the best firms in Milwaukee with the benefits of a smaller, focused firm that allows for extensive client interaction and individualized attention.

Throughout its history, FF&SJ has been recognized as one of Milwaukee’s preeminent law firms and continues its reputation of providing hands-on, creative and tenacious representation to businesses, individuals and governments.

FF&SJ is known in the community as a “boutique” firm because of its client-friendly size and its focus on complex litigation and defined practice areas. In addition to litigation, our practice areas include land use law, zoning, permits and licensing, real estate, environmental law, construction law, insurance, technology, creditor’s rights, lending, business law and entity formation and structuring.

Our litigation team represents clients in complex litigation, environmental matters including toxic torts, class actions, technology related cases, real estate, condemnation, business disputes, construction law, insurance law (including coverage and bad faith matters) and zoning and municipal law matters. We represent both plaintiffs and defendants in litigation, including municipalities and administrative bodies.

The firm has made a long-term commitment to developing strong working relationships with local and state elected officials and professional staff in all levels of government. These relationships pay off for our clients, providing them with the most comprehensive representation available.

Because of its unique skills and experience, the firm has and continues to represent large companies (MillerCoors, Meijer, Northwestern Mutual Life, and Time Warner Cable), government entities (Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District, Forest County Potawatomi Community, City of Green Bay) and many other smaller businesses, as well as individuals.

FF&SJ’s attorneys are long-time Wisconsin residents, and they truly understand their community. This broad and varied expertise extends throughout the firm, with each client matched with the right attorney or attorneys.

FF&SJ provides more than expert legal analysis and aggressive representation – it applies its collective innovation, imagination and commitment to every matter to determine not only the best – but the right solution.
