TYPE OF BUSINESS: The Kravit firm is Wisconsin's leading litigation boutique. We are the go-to lawyers for aggressive representation in aggravated litigation. When the stakes are high, an unresolved dispute makes your business and personal life miserable. Consult us when fraud is discovered; longtime business relationships end; contracts are breached; employees leave to compete; dealerships or franchises are terminated; a professional license is in jeopardy; a product causes damage; shareholders or partners are being treated unfairly; a patent or trademark dispute is brewing; there is a bet the company or class action claim; the government is being unreasonable; criminal charges are being considered; or personal freedom is at stake. If any of these things happen to you, you are involved in the kind of aggravated litigation we excel at handling. You will find us in cases involving dealerships, franchises, class actions, fraud, bad faith, insurance, employment, shareholder oppression, fiduciaries, product safety, patents, intellectual property, antitrust, securities, construction, professional licenses, aviation, and all contract and commercial claims. Our highly regarded white collar criminal practice includes representation of people and companies accused of fraud, and those victimized by it. Skill in the courtroom translates to favorable resolution outside the courtroom. This year we settled a national class action case in favor of our client franchisees, valued at $206 million. Currently we are successfully representing developers, school districts and other victims of the financial meltdown in various claims. The firm's lawyers are experienced practitioners before all Wisconsin state and federal trial and appellate courts. We try cases before judges, juries, arbitrators and hearing boards. We work with the most complex facts and issues, we can handle mountains of documents, and we have plenty of experience with electronic discovery. Our lawyers attended excellent law schools, including Harvard, Wisconsin, Iowa, Syracuse and Marquette. All Kravit lawyers have records of outstanding achievement, such as clerking for a federal or state trial, appellate or Supreme Court; working as a law review editor; or serving as a federal prosecutor. Our lawyers publish articles, teach at law schools and legal education seminars, and serve community groups with distinction. Seven of our 11 lawyers have been named Super Lawyers[R]. Steve Kravit has been listed in The Best Lawyers in America for more than 20 years. He has been named a Best Lawyer in Milwaukee by Milwaukee Magazine multiple times, and for the fourth time is on the Wisconsin Super Lawyers[R] top 50 list. I like to say we live other people's nightmares, said Steve Kravit. Let us help resolve yours.

TYPE OF BUSINESS: Franchise law requires familiarity with both federal and state law, which regulates the sale of franchises. We have an active franchise practice representing both franchisees and franchisors. Representation of franchisors and potential franchisors often involves as an initial step analyzing a proposed business structure to determine if the structure creates a franchise (which is defined differently in federal law than it is in many state laws) or if the structure can be revised to avoid the application of franchise law. When a business structure constitutes a franchise for federal or state purposes, Our franchise lawyers have national experience to help you through the process of preparing a franchise agreement and offering circular (the disclosure document required by federal and some state laws) and get you registered as required in certain states such as Maryland before you can offer a franchise to a potential investor. In addition, our franchise lawyers can generally advise you on other issues that will arise as your franchise network expands.
