Foley & Lardner LLP
777 East Wisconsin Avenue
Milwaukee, WI 53202
Andrew J. Wronski is a trial lawyer with more than 25 years of experience working closely with clients to confront complex disputes that disrupt business, cause stress, and generate commercial and financial uncertainty. He is the managing partner of the firm’s Milwaukee office and former vice chair of the firm’s Litigation Department. Andy is a member of the firm’s Manufacturing sector as well as the Business Litigation & Dispute Resolution and Securities Enforcement & Litigation Practices.
Andy is highly skilled in assessing and managing risk, proposing creative, practical, and cost-effective dispute resolution strategies, as well as achieving the client’s legal, business, and strategic goals through litigation.
Litigation and Dispute Resolution
Andy primarily focuses his practice on complex litigation and trial work, representing corporate and manufacturing clients involved in sophisticated, high-stakes commercial and financial disputes. He is particularly experienced in litigating complex contractual and supply-chain disputes, claims of commercial and financial fraud, including claims asserted under the Racketeer Influenced Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO), shareholder class actions, (particularly in the M&A context), post-closing M&A disputes (including purchase-price and working capital adjustments), claims under the Uniform Commercial Code, distribution and manufacturing agreement disputes, and trade secret claims, among others.
Andy’s practice is national in scope. He regularly litigates, tries, and arbitrates cases across the country. However, having practiced in the state of Wisconsin for 25 years, Andy is uniquely positioned to assist clients with issues and disputes within the state — he has extensive litigation and trial experience in both state and federal courts across Wisconsin. In addition, Andy is a former president and director of the Milwaukee Bar Association and an active member of the Eastern District of Wisconsin Bar Association and the Seventh Circuit Bar Association.
Sports Industry Counseling and Litigation
Andy often brings his litigation, counseling, and trial experience to bear in matters involving professional and collegiate athletics. He is a member of the firm’s Sports Industry Team (2015 U.S. News – Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms” nationally ranked Tier 1 practice). His sports litigation experience includes matters involving collegiate conference realignment, professional franchise relocation, sponsorship disputes, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and Major League Baseball player salary arbitration.
