Organizations across Wisconsin routinely work together in support of the state’s legal profession. Wisconsin Lawyers Mutual Insurance Company is one of them. The company’s partnerships with the State Bar of Wisconsin and its members, county Bar associations and their members, and the faculty and students at the state’s two law schools are central to the way Wisconsin Lawyers Mutual has operated since day one.
“Engaging with Wisconsin lawyers in many settings is part of our mission,” says President & CEO Tom Watson, noting that in 2021 he and other staff members presented or participated in more than 30 CLE programs around the state.
Marsha Mansfield, Shannon Wynn and Brian Schuk know the value derived from partnering with Wisconsin Lawyers Mutual staff members. Mansfield is on the faculty at the UW Law School in Madison. Wynn and Schuk co-teach a course on starting and managing a law practice at Marquette Law School in Milwaukee. All three invite Thomas Watson, Katja Kunzke and others from Wisconsin Lawyers Mutual to address their students every year.
The fact that the speakers from Wisconsin Lawyers Mutual bring authenticity to such talks makes them a real draw.
“There’s nothing like a true story to focus people’s attention,” notes Brovold.
