Ross W. Townsend

Ross Townsend has more than 25 years of experience in representing both large and small employers in the full range of employment-related legal matters. He has represented employers in a wide variety of forums including labor arbitrations, mediations and negotiations, and in proceedings before the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the National Labor Relations Board, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the U.S. Department of Labor, and numerous state and federal Courts in Wisconsin and across the United States.

Ross has taught graduate level classes for a private university and has extensive speaking experience regarding employment and labor matters, issues regarding non-compete and confidentiality agreements, the Affordable Care Act, and related rules and regulations.

Recently a client thanked me for finding creative ways to solve problems that allowed his company to be profitable while also reducing, controlling and eliminating legal risk. Those results were not made possible because I worked for that client. Rather those results were possible only because I worked with that client toward a common goal. Proudly, that is my approach with every client relationship.
