WHY ATTORNEYS CHOOSE D&K
As one of the top 10 largest law firms in Wisconsin, Davis & Kuelthau’s breadth of services mirrors the scope of other area business law firms — within a flexible rate structure.

Why? Our success relies heavily on our ability to be strategic in our growth, fluid with our service approach, and to continually evolve with the needs of our clients.
OUR FIRM’S CORE VALUES
The essential and enduring tenets upon which all Firm operations, decisions and activities are based are our core values:
Our core values are underscored through our financial transparency. We recognize ourselves as a business and respect the need to be fiscally responsible to our shareholders. As such, we do not have any debt or any unfunded liabilities, nor have we ever had debt. Similarly, we do not have any personal guarantees on our leases.
WHAT OUR COLLEAGUES LIKE MOST ABOUT A CAREER AT D&K
--“D&K offers all the sophistication of our competitors but without the high hourly rates opposed by clients. Thereby, we remain competitive and offer a higher value in the eyes of our clients.”
- “The collegial, team-oriented atmosphere.”
- “As a newly minted shareholder, the resources offered by the Firm and my colleagues have been invaluable in molding a successful practice.”
- “When I joined from a larger area firm, a tremendous weight was lifted off my shoulders. The billable expectations and need to succeed remained; however, I felt a tremendous sense of support that I hadn’t experienced elsewhere.”
- “With a very busy practice and an even busier family, I appreciate the remote access technology offered by D&K which enables me to serve my clients any time, from anywhere and without the frequency of technological interruption that I experienced at my prior firm.”
- “At D&K, I feel part of a professional team — a family — as opposed to merely being an employee number and a nameless face in the hall.”
