Please be advised that Lakelaw Kenosha, which also does business as Lakelaw 7 Rivers LaCrosse and Lakelaw Wisconsin (the "firm"), is a general partnership consisting of Law Offices of James W. McNeilly, Jr. LLC, a Wisconsin Limited Liability Company, and Law Offices of David P. Leibowitz LLC, (the "Limited Liability Companies") The Wisconsin Supreme Court has ordered law firms that operate as a limited liability entity, as Lakelaw does, to advise clients and prospective clients that the law governing this type of limited liability entity shields its owners from vicarious liability. This means that in the event of an error, Lakelaw and its insurer may be liable, as may the attorneys who worked on or directly supervised the matter, but not other attorneys who did not work on or directly supervise the matter. The Supreme Court also requires law firms operating as limited liability entities to register annually with the State Bar of Wisconsin and to carry certain minimum liability insurance coverage. Lakelaws liability insurance equals or exceeds the minimum required.
