ALAN E. SENECZKO is the managing shareholder of our Wisconsin office. Prior to joining Wessels Sherman, Al owned Seneczko Law Offices, where he spent 20 years defending employers before various state and federal agencies, including the EEOC, NLRB, OFCCP, OSHA, the Wage and Hour Division, the Wisconsin Equal Rights, Worker’s Compensation and Unemployment Compensation Divisions, arbitrators, and in state and federal court. He also represents a number of insurers and self-insured employers in the defense of worker’s compensation claims. He is the author of numerous published articles and a highly sought-after speaker on a wide variety of employment issues. 

Recently listed as one of “Wisconsin’s Top Rated” Labor and Employment Lawyers. Al has received an “AV” rating from the Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory based upon a survey of private and corporate lawyers.  An “AV” rating (very high to preeminent) is the highest legal ability rating awarded.

Al devotes much of his practice to counseling employers on difficult day-to-day issues that span the vast array of employment laws – but is a zealous advocate once those issues become the basis of litigation.
