Business Litigation

O’Neil, Cannon, Hollman, DeJong & Laing’s business litigation practice has handled some of the largest, most high profile and complicated lawsuits ever filed in Wisconsin, such as the litigation arising out of the construction of the retractable roof at Miller Park (the home of the Milwaukee Brewers), and the litigation over asbestos abatement at Southridge and Northridge Shopping Malls (the two largest shopping malls in Wisconsin at the time). But that is only a piece of our practice. We also handle disputes which may be much smaller in nature, but are just as important to our clients.

Business litigation often involves significant amounts of money as well as protection of one’s business and reputation. We take pride in being aggressive and thoroughly prepared attorneys who encourage amicable resolutions of disputes, but are not afraid to try cases.

Our team’s litigators have been recognized for their outstanding litigation skills with such awards as being named one of “Milwaukee’s Best Lawyers” and a “Leader in the Law” as “represent[ing] some of the best from our legal community.” They have been called “very bright, hardworking and intense,” “brilliant, hard-working attorney[s] who have an impressive record,” and attorneys “of the highest standing” in the legal community.

O’Neil, Cannon, Hollman, DeJong & Laing’s business litigators have served on the faculty at law schools, are frequently invited speakers on trial and other legal issues at legal seminars, and regularly publish articles and book chapters on trial-related topics. We practice what we teach, and teach what we practice.
