HISTORY OF WELD RILEY
Weld Riley, S.C. began in Eau Claire in 1978 as a branch office of a Milwaukee law firm. Originally, the firm focused on representing employers in collective bargaining, labor and employment law matters.
In 1991, the seven attorneys practicing in the Eau Claire office formed Weld, Riley, Prenn & Ricci, S.C. At the time, the firm’s practice areas expanded to include business, corporate and municipal law.
Since then, the firm has expanded both in the number of attorneys and in practice areas. Today, Weld Riley, S.C. has more than 30 lawyers in three locations, representing clients in labor and employment, business law, estate planning, tax representation, municipal law, frac sand, mining and mineral rights, environmental law, banking and creditors’ rights, civil litigation, worker’s compensation defense, criminal defense, immigration, and family law.
After 25 years, Weld Riley, S.C. has shortened its name and updated its logo. While the firm’s name and “face” have changed, its history, values and commitment to its Wisconsin roots remain and continue to strengthen. Weld Riley, S.C. can be counted on for the same high level of dedicated, responsive service and legal insight delivered by the attorneys and staff its clients know and trust.
