Whyte Hirschboeck Dudek S.C. (WHD), a leading full-service law firm, has a rich and distinguished history dating back to 1943. With more than 150 professionals practicing in more than 50 industry and specialty areas out of offices in Milwaukee, Madison, and Chicago, the firm is more vibrant and vital than ever and plays a significant role in shaping political, economic, environmental and legal landscapes.
While our focus has been on our clients’ success since the firm’s founding, the appointment of non-attorney, business owner and WHD client Paul Eberle as WHD’s chief executive brought a unique perspective to the firm that sets WHD apart from its competitors. Eberle has vigorously championed the client perspective and his leadership ensures it is incorporated into the firm’s processes and innovations.
Just as WHD is committed to delivering exceptional service and innovative, practical solutions to state, regional and national clients, the firm is dedicated to continuous improvement and to being an attractive place for employees to work.
Experience has taught us that career-minded professionals bring with them such attributes as a dedication to client service, a commitment to self-improvement, a team-based mentality, and admirable personal qualities such as honesty and integrity. If these are characteristics that define you and your work ethic, we invite you to explore the careers available at WHD and welcome the opportunity to review your resume.
Firm Culture and Benefits
The hallmark of WHD is the character and culture of its people, which emanates from an underlying shared set of principles. These values distinguish us from other law firms and form the identity and soul of our firm.
At WHD, we embrace multiple points of view and are committed to diversity. Women in particular hold substantial positions of authority in our management, including on our Board of Directors and as our Vice Presidents of Legal Services and Client Services, team leaders, and in “C-Suite” positions. Our groups and committees help promote a firm-wide philosophy of inclusion and action, with significant contributions of time and resources to community and charitable causes. An important part of our mission is to serve our communities in meaningful partnerships and pro bono work.
The firm’s mission statement sets the tone: “Our mission is client success. We will deliver client success by recruiting, developing and retaining quality at all levels of our firm and by providing the best counsel to our clients.”
WHD strives to support, compensate and reward employees fairly and objectively. Our comprehensive benefit package offers recognition programs, education, training and development, and health and wellness.
