William F. Springer



Over the years, I have gained extensive experience in various areas of law, particularly in matters concerning business transactions, real estate, banking, agriculture and landlord-tenant law. I provide comprehensive representation to business entities, assisting them with their contractual obligations, commercial transactions, and financial matters. From corporate formation and contract negotiation to addressing employment issues, I am dedicated to helping my clients navigate legal complexities efficiently and proactively. I take great pride in working closely with my clients, understanding their objectives, and striving to achieve them in a goal-oriented and cost-effective manner.

I have helped individuals form/organize and manage a number of different types of business entities, including limited liability companies, partnerships and corporations. I created operating, partnership and shareholder agreements, and represented entities in mergers, conversions and dissolutions and advised on regulatory matters and other day-to-day business issues.

Real Estate
In the realm of real estate, I have developed a strong foundation of knowledge and experience. Whether it involves traditional sales and purchases, short sale transactions, or commercial and residential development, I am well-versed in handling diverse real estate matters.

Landlord/Tenant Law
One of the key areas of my practice is handling both commercial and residential evictions and damage claims for clients throughout Wisconsin and Illinois. I also assist clients in drafting and interpreting agricultural and commercial leases, residential rental agreements, and other rental documents. By providing guidance and support in these matters, I strive to protect the rights and interests of my clients while ensuring legal compliance and resolving disputes effectively.

Credit & Collection
Additionally, I have worked closely with individual and corporate creditors, dealing with complex commercial and consumer bankruptcy proceedings, debt collection, lien enforcement, and foreclosure cases. My prior experience in the Finance Department of a prominent community bank in Madison, WI has provided me with valuable insights into the financial aspects of real estate and business matters.
