Wilson Elser Milwaukee Office Moves to Cathedral Place in Downtown Milwaukee

New York, NY ‒ (June 21, 2021) – National law firm Wilson Elser announced today that the firm’s Milwaukee office has moved to new space in Cathedral Place at 555 East Wells Street in downtown Milwaukee.

The firm moved into the new office on April 30, with space totaling 6,570 square feet on the 17th floor of Cathedral Place, with views of Lake Michigan. The mixed-use facility, built in 2004, is located at the corner of Wells Street and Jackson Street in Milwaukee.

According to William J. Katt, Regional Managing Partner of the Milwaukee office and Chair of the firm’s Aviation & Aerospace Practice, the new location was designed with both clients and employees in mind.

“The lake concept was incorporated into the interior design, featuring a nautical navy blue as an accent color to the white and mixed grays used throughout the space,” he said. “The office features agile work spaces that can be reserved by attorneys and staff when they plan to work in the office, allowing us to use the space very efficiently.”
The office’s reservation system can be accessed by attorneys and staff via their mobile devices or through Outlook, and reservations are displayed on iPads located outside each office or work station. The private offices and work stations feature sit/stand desks and dual large-screen monitors.

The office is designed to maximize the natural light, allowing it to flow through to both private offices and work stations in the open-concept area.
