Class of 2022

For the past 30 years, Ann Maher, a partner in Husch Blackwell’s Milwaukee office, has helped employers and employees alike on a range of commercial disputes.

Maher’s specialties include contract disputes, franchise agreements, professional malpractice, dealership terminations and construction and commercial lease disputes. 

“She understands that litigation is expensive and distracting for clients, whether it involves contract disputes, dealership termination, lease quarrels, contested noncompete agreements or intellectual property issues. She looks to resolve disputes in a practical way to keep the wheels of commerce turning smoothly for her technology, manufacturing and transportation clients,” said Paul Eberle, chief executive officer of Husch Blackwell LLP.

“Ann is more than a litigator; she’s a trusted advisor to company presidents, general counsels and other organizational leaders on a variety of business and legal issues,” he added. 

Maher is also involved in organizations throughout the Milwaukee area, including Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin, St. Thomas More’s Lawyer Society, Clement Manor and Ascension Wisconsin.

She is a member of Husch Blackwell’s executive board and a lecturer on litigation-related topics.
