Milwaukee, WI – The Janesville firm of Carney, Davies & Thorpe LLC and the Milwaukee-based firm, Michael Best & Friedrich LLP, have founded the Wisconsin Law Alliance, a growing association of independent law firms dedicated to providing superior, cost-effective legal services to businesses and individuals throughout the State of Wisconsin.

“The attorneys of Michael Best & Friedrich look forward to the opportunities provided by the Alliance to work with Carney, Davies & Thorpe on exciting legal projects in the greater Rock County area,” says Charles V. Sweeney, Michael Best Partner and Coordinator of the Construction Focus Group.

Wisconsin Law Alliance allows Carney, Davies & Thorpe and Michael Best to improve their ability to serve the needs of their respective clients and provide value-added legal services in each other’s markets where one firm has knowledge the other does not — by sharing this experience, clients of both firms will benefit.

Carney, Davies & Thorpe partner, James Thorpe said “legal services available to businesses in Rock County will be enhanced by the availability of expertise and market knowledge facilitated by the Alliance, including access to Michael Best’s 300 plus lawyers in various practice groups.”

“For Rock County, this is a blockbuster deal. The dean of the Rock County business lawyers is working with lawyers at Michael Best & Friedrich, Wisconsin’s leading business law firm,” says Jeff Roethe, an attorney with Roethe, Krohn & Pope LLP.

Members of the Alliance maintain their independence as separate law firms and are not affiliated for the joint practice of law.
