No two business start-ups are the same. For that reason, advising early stage companies and entrepreneurs requires experience, versatility, and a deep commitment to individuals and their goals. At Axley, we have attorneys who practice in nearly all legal disciplines and across all industries. We have practiced in the Madison area since 1885 and have a secondary office in Waukesha. Over the years, we have developed a reputation of being expert lawyers who are mindful of what it means to serve our clients. Our deep roots in Wisconsin also provide us with the unique ability to couple our legal expertise with our vast network of contacts to help businesspeople start their businesses and make the connections and decisions to help them facilitate growth.

We work regularly with the University of Wisconsin system, Madison College, and other high education institutions in Wisconsin. We are also intricately connected with investor networks within the state. These unique characteristics make us a firm that has an ideal position to assist entrepreneurs in achieving their goals and see their ideas and hard work develop into successful organizations.
