Mike Fox is managing partner at Fox & Fox, S.C., and represents clients in Wisconsin in issues of constitutional law, business litigation, personal injury, legal malpractice, fiduciary breaches and employment disputes. Throughout his career of over four decades, he has been named the #1 plaintiff’s employment lawyer in the state by Chambers U.S.A. and one of the Best Lawyers in America, and he has been recognized in many publications such as Madison Magazine, Law and Politics, the U.S. News & World Report and the American Lawyer.

Currently, he is licensed to practice in the state of Wisconsin and before the United States District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin, the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin and the United States Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit.
