May 4, 2020

MILWAUKEE (May 4, 2020) – Godfrey & Kahn, S.C. is excited to announce the expansion of its team with the addition of Peter L. Albrecht and Christopher R. Walker.

Albrecht has more than 30 years of experience representing small and large employers in their labor and employment legal needs. From 1994 to 2006, Albrecht practiced with Godfrey & Kahn in the labor and employment practice group until he opened his own boutique labor and employment law firm, Albrecht Backer Labor & Employment, S.C.

Albrecht is an adjunct professor of labor relations at the University of Wisconsin Law School. He literally wrote the book on Wisconsin employment law, having co-authored “Hiring and Firing in Wisconsin,” a State Bar of Wisconsin publication.

Walker joined the Godfrey & Kahn Corporate Practice Group, where he will assist businesses in corporate transactions and contractual matters, help clients negotiate and drafted merger and acquisition agreements, and managed transactional due diligence.

Walker graduated from UIC John Marshall Law School, cum laude. Prior to joining Godfrey & Kahn, he worked at a business law firm in Chicago and served as corporate counsel for a privately-held software company in Madison. Prior to his law career, he was a partner at a technology consulting firm.
