Will Kramer, an Associate in the firm's Litigation Practice Group, advises clients and litigates in areas including whistleblower law, labor and employment law, environmental law, and health law, and offers services related to regulatory compliance and crisis management. He practices in state and federal court, as well as before administrative agencies including the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the Wisconsin Equal Rights Division (ERD). Will draws upon his unique background as an investigator, risk management consultant, and whistleblower to develop and implement comprehensive and innovative legal strategies for his clients. 

As an investigator on a U.S. Senate oversight committee, Will acquired an acute understanding of governmental operations and a keen eye for uncovering misconduct. His experience as a risk management consultant to businesses around the country has provided him with insights into the multifaceted challenges and competing priorities faced by organizations and individuals alike, fostering an adaptable and pragmatic approach to legal problem-solving. As a whistleblower himself, he has personal experience navigating the fear, uncertainty, and risks that his clients often face during the legal process. 

When Will learned that a multinational corporation was illegally disposing of hazardous waste and putting its own workers as well as broader communities at risk, he made the difficult decision to blow the whistle. Over the next several years, Will worked successfully with investigators, elected representatives, and the media to help ensure the company changed its practices. From these experiences, Will developed his approach to legal representation on a foundation of empathy, open and honest communication, and a passion for justice.
