Legal Assistance

Through the Wisconsin Medical Society's partnership with the law firm von Briesen & Roper, s.c., WisMed members have access to:

  • A no charge one-hour consultation valued at $500
  • Reduced rates on follow-up work valued at a savings of approximately $100 per hour
  • WisMed Legal Assist Hotline at 608.442.3715 or [email protected]

WisMed members can seek consultation on topics such as regulatory compliance, risk mitigation, starting or expanding a business, contract questions, employment law concerns and more. Consults provide short-term limited representations, with no obligation to purchase anything. Von Briesen will not represent you after the call unless you both agree to a separate engagement.



From von Briesen & Roper, s.c.

What if you didn’t have to choose between the resources and specialization of “big law” and the personal touch and local connections of a hometown law firm? At von Briesen & Roper, s.c., we’re excited to offer you the best of both worlds. Our health law attorneys combine national expertise with a deep understanding of the nuances of Wisconsin’s local markets. 

We are proud to serve individual physicians, independent clinics, surgery centers, physician-led start-ups, and other physician-owned companies throughout the state. Many of our more than 180 professionals have executive, enforcement and/or in-house experience, and we pride ourselves on problem-solving, practical advice, and driving projects forward at the speed of business.

Our homegrown Wisconsin firm, established in 1904, was among the first to create a true “health law section” focused on the federal and state regulation of topics such as fraud and abuse, privacy and security, corporate practice of medicine, scope of practice and licensure issues, professional liability, and payer/provider contracting, to name a few. We often serve as outside general counsel to health care organizations, and our core health law team is complemented by attorneys skilled in many other legal disciplines but focused on the unique context of the health care industry. These include employment, tax, non-profit, employee benefits, real estate, technology, securities, and intellectual property law.

If you’re looking for a law firm that understands and values physicians, we would love to talk with you. Schedule a complimentary consultation today through the WisMed Legal Assist Hotline to discuss a legal question, or just to see if we’re a good fit for future projects. Either way, your WisMed membership means your consultation is completely free of charge.
