Our Work

We represent clients in their most significant and complex litigation around the country. Our lawyers have prosecuted and defended cases in nearly every state across the country, securing winning verdicts from Maui to Maine and many places in-between.

Our Credentials

Our attorneys are recognized nationally for our skills, achievements, and results.

When it comes to high-stakes cases, it’s all about skill, not size.

After a series of trial victories involving professional liability, food safety, and false advertising, the National Law Journal named GWM to its Litigation Boutique Hot List, recognizing that “small and scrappy seems to pay off.”

Our attorneys have achieved nearly every recognition available to civil trial attorneys. For instance…

For many years, Chambers & Partners has ranked GWM and certain members among the best trial lawyers in Wisconsin. For instance, Chambers praised Ric Gass as “a trial bar legend,” remarking that he has a “personality the jury wants to listen to.”

U.S. News & World Report has named GWM among its best law firms for the past several years, and identified Ralph Weber as the “Lawyer of the Year” for Bet-the-Company Litigation in Milwaukee.

Our lawyers have been named Super Lawyers, AV-Preeminent, and listed in the Best Lawyers in America.

Our attorneys are involved in the leading national trial lawyer organizations, such as The Federation of Defense and Corporate Counsel, the American College of Trial Lawyers, the International Association of Defense Counsel, and the Litigation Counsel of America.

Not only have our members been invited into elite organizations where membership is only by nomination, investigation and vote, but they have been asked to serve in leadership positions. For instance, Joe Fasi served on the Board of Directors of DRI and Ric Gass served as president of three national trial lawyer organizations – The Federation of Defense and Corporate Counsel, Lawyers for Civil Justice, and the Litigation Counsel of America

Our attorneys routinely teach other lawyers in these organizations. For example, Brian Cahill and David Turek have been selected as associate Deans and Ric Gass serves as the Lifetime Dean of the LCA’s Trial Law Institute and are responsible for teaching a curriculum aimed at making the best trial lawyers even better.


We continue to make headlines around the country

Our Accolades

We obtain a significant number of cases via referrals from other attorneys who appreciate the skills we bring to the courtroom.

In an era when trials are getting rarer, most lawyers can't actually try a case anymore... but you best believe the lawyers at Gass Weber Mullins can.

– Competitor quoted in Benchmark Litigation

Dedicated trial firm with a strong bench of highly experienced attorneys.

– 2016 Chambers USA

Your team is the “A-Team” of trials. My firm could only hope to coordinate a trial with the cohesiveness you guys have.

– New Jersey LCA Fellow

I’ve crossed paths with a lot of folks that fancy themselves to be leaders just by virtue of being in the top position on a team, but you are among the true leaders in our field. You clearly understand the importance of the big picture as a trial attorney, but you also understand the importance of the little things.

– Co-Counsel from Am Law 200 Firm Speaking about Joseph M. Fasi, II

Honestly, I think Friday was the single most productive and valuable time I’ve ever spent at a conference in terms of skill development and big picture thinking. It was all that good. Thank you again. I know that you guys put a lot of thought and effort into what you do for us and I really appreciated it.

– Massachusetts LCA Fellow

A great litigation boutique with a lot of terrific attorneys

– Reviewer Comment from Chambers & Partners

Large enough to have the resources you need to throw at a problem, and small enough so I can pick up the phone at any time and speak to whoever I need to…I turn to them for my most serious complicated matters.

– General Counsel of Firm Client

They’ve got a unique, powerful way of putting on evidence.

– Vice President of National Insurer

They were a well-oiled machine.

Our logo is inspired by a statue that stands outside Columbia Law School. The statue, “Tightrope Walker” by Kees Verkade, is dedicated to General William J. Donovan, one of the founders of our country’s intelligence services. We believe it captures a trial lawyer’s work — walking the tightrope of risk, carrying the client, with the client providing the direction.
