Boyle Fredrickson Earns Awards and Recognition
Already recognized as Wisconsin’s largest intellectual property (IP) law firm, Boyle Fredrickson was recently named by the Business Journal as one of 25 largest law firms in the Milwaukee area. In addition, during the past few months Boyle Fredrickson has also received two prestigious awards recognizing the firm’s recent success.
Earlier this spring, the Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce’s (MMAC) Council of Small Business Executives (COSBE) announced Boyle Fredrickson amongst its list of Future 50 award winners for 2008. The Future 50 program recognizes privately-owned companies in Southeastern Wisconsin that have been in business for at least three years and have shown significant revenue and employment growth.
“The Future 50 list is often a harbinger of what’s around the corner for the region’s economy,” said Tim Sheehy, president of the MMAC. “We’re seeing encouraging signs that local, innovative manufacturers can, and will continue to, thrive here. The fact that much of their business is conducted outside the region means they are attracting outside investment into the region, growing the economic base for everyone.”
On the heels of the Future 50 announcement, Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett presented the firm as a winner of the 2007 Mayor’s Urban Design Awards for their building at 840 North Plankinton Avenue. Now in its eleventh year, the Mayor’s Urban Design Awards program honors exceptional examples of design, facade improvements, landscaping and signage within the city.
Attorney and shareholder a href=”/our-people/jay-g-durst/”>Jay Durst led the way for the purchase and renovation of the property. Durst led collaborative efforts with the builders at BTB Construction and Design and with interior designer Maria Cieslek to completely renovate the property. Boyle Fredrickson’s offices occupy a turn-of-thecentury Cream City brick building on the west bank of the Milwaukee River. At 13,000 square feet, the space houses over 20 intellectual property attorneys and additional support staff.
“We are proud of the new offices and especially proud of all the hard work and planning that Jay Durst put forth in turning our vision for the building into a reality,” said Boyle Fredrickson President Andrew McConnell. “We are also grateful to the city of Milwaukee for supporting us in our growth and helping Boyle Fredrickson remain a fixture of the downtown business community.”
