Milwaukee-Based Insolvency Attorney

Successfully Completed Engagements


On 4 Continents


In 16 Countries


In 26 States

Wadsworth Whitestar has offices in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Wadsworth, Illinois (Northern suburbs of Chicago).  Though the majority of our engagements tend to be in the upper-midwest, our professionals have successfully completed projects in 26 states, in Canada, Central and South America, Europe, Asia, and even in the republics of the former Soviet Union.

Over the years our professionals have worked in almost every conceivable industry.  Proximity to the manufacturing base of the upper-midwest is evident in the list of clients we have served, but so is a diversity that speaks to the breadth of our experience.  And, while we acknowledge that this specific industry experience can be beneficial, a foundational tenet of our firm philosophy is that we are first and foremost process experts, not industry experts.  We believe that optimal outcomes are achieved by working collaboratively with management, building on an established base of industry and operation specific knowledge, not by imposing our version of industry best practices.  Our professionals provide the expertise required to successfully navigate the unique challenges encountered by a business in distress coupled with a breadth of experience that supports the development of creative, innovative alternatives, unfettered by a myopic, “that’s not the way it’s done” mentality.
