The Business Law Section is providing legal assistance to small businesses and small business owners in Wisconsin with non-litigation business law services they could not otherwise afford.
Eligible participants can receive brief assistance on a wide variety of business law matters including:
- Finance and lending
- Insurance claims/coverage
- Commercial leases and contracts
- Labor and employment
- Real estate
- Commercial debtor/creditor
- Regulatory compliance, including privacy and COVID-19 related requirements
Please note that this assistance is for business owners, not employees. Employees seeking legal help should visit
Wisconsin Free Legal Answers.
The Small Business Assistance will not handle:
- Patent or trademark issues, or
- Commercial real estate transactions.
The Business Law Section is partnering with the Marquette Volunteer Legal Clinic (MVLC) to offer brief free advice with respect to business law issues as noted above. Consultations will be coordinated through MVLC and held on weekday mornings via Zoom or telephone with the consultation lasting up to one hour.

Appointments for consultations are booked with experienced business law attorneys. Small businesses are encouraged to sign up for an appointment but should cancel appointments if conflicts arise so that others may utilize the appointment time.
